Rise of the Footsoldier: Marbella (2019)


“Pack your bag and a passport Ralphie, we’re goin to Spain.” – Tony Tucker

Number of Times Seen – 1 (3 Mar 2020)

Brief Synopsis – Continuation of the crime life of Pat Tate as he travels to Spain and causes havoc there too.

My Take on it – I never thought that this series could get worse and I am more and more surprised by each subsequent film in this series as to how bad they are.

This is one again another horrendous film in this series and it fails to make any sense along the way.

It sometimes feels as if they are just trying to find reasons to keep making these very shallow and pointless crime films that have absolutely no merit and make so little sense what so ever.

None of the characters are developed in a way where we can care about them and there is a constant feel that many scenes are added here solely for the shock and awe purpose and don’t really contribute to the expansion of the story itself.

The film goes to great lengths to be quite violent and graphic in all that it does as it tries to depict the Essex crime underworld.

I believe that they ran out of real ideas three films ago and they should have just made the first one and stopped trying to expand this story.

With this film and the two previous one,s there is a feeling as if they are just grasping fr straws while attempting to create somewhat tangent stories that occur before, after and even during the setting of the first film.

I have great hope that this will be the final film in the series and that they stop making these extraneous films.

Bottom Line – And the hits keep coming… Another horrendous film in this series that fails to make any sense. This series gets worse and worse as it moves along because it seems as if they are just trying to find reasons to keep making these really shallow and boring crime stories that have no merit what so ever. None of these characters are developed in any real fashion and things seem as if they chose to film them solely for the shock and awe of it all because this film is quite violent and graphic in the way that it depicts the Essex underworld. I think that they ran out of real ideas three films ago and probably should have stayed with the original film instead of grasping for straws in an attempt to create tangent stories that take place after, before or even during the events of that first film.  Really hope they stop making these.
