* DownerEnding: Despite the film trying to make it [[BittersweetEnding seem a bittersweet]], on reflection [[spoiler:Matt]] is the only character to end the film happy. After all, [[spoiler: Pete’s dead, most of the \GSE are in prison, Tommy is a [[Karma Houdini]], Shannon has been forced to leave her husband, and Steve is critically injured in hospital and has lost his wife, son and brother in one fell swoop.]]

As it received mixed reviews, the film's questionable casting choices and highly questionable accents (the problems being connected) were considered serious flaws. That's not to say that the reviews were all bad, however, with RogerEbert giving the film a glowing response.

** Also, when Matt asks about the aftermath of the fight between the GSE and the Spurs hooligans, Shannon responds that "Tottenham was in town." Anyone who watches English soccer/football knows that Tottenham is a club from London...

* ArtisticLicenseSports: This occurs when Pete takes Matt to see West Ham play against Birmingham City at Upton Park. The team shown in the film was not Birmingham City (which would have been wearing blue-and-white kits) but rather Gillingham, a team which wore the blue and black hoops during the 2003-2004 season. Moreover, since Birmingham City and West Ham were in different divisions during the 2003-2004 season (Birmingham in the Premier League, West Ham in the Championship), it would have been impossible for the two clubs to play league games against each other during that season.
