Pwappa Nawty (Not in a Good Way)By Smudgy (77 reviews) from London , 11 Mar 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHide
[Highly rated reviewer]This is quite possibly, the worst, stupidest thing I have ever seen. I know the original film was dumb, but I quite enjoyed it. I generally like this kind of film, but this really doesn't have a single redeeming feature. The violence is explicit, but poorly choreographed and relentless. Most school plays are better acted. The script is absolutely implausible. None of the characters (or caricatures) have the slightest depth.
If you're at all interested, it's set in a prison this time. Of course you've got bent guards. You've got violent drug dealing inmates. I just have no idea how a bunch of sentinent human beings can have got together the funding and released this garbage. Somebody must have thought it was a good idea.

Last Resort ViewingBy MADoubleT (23 reviews) , 08 Nov 2013Pretty poor film i'm afraid doesn't hold up to the first. I have the 3rd coming soon. We'll see what thats like I suppose.
TERRIBLE FILMBy Gary37 (4 reviews) from Guildford , 05 Mar 2013What a joke this film was, at one point I did wonder if it was a bad comedy. The least convincing football hooligan film ever made! Film was shot overseas, meant to be UK prisons, not sure I remember English summer ever being that hot. Love film sort it out, whoever picks your films needs firing now!!!!!
Green Street 2 Stand Your Ground.By oliver1 (3 reviews) , 02 Nov 2012Mediocre sequel to a far better first film. Only one of the original cast returned.
You can tell is is a foreign script writer. The prison is called Royal Prison when a British script writer would know the Prison is called HMP. Lack of research. Prison looks like a WW2 German Prisoner of war camp rather than the Victorian prisons in the UK. Scriptwriter obviously thinks throwing in as much swearing and violence with as little original plot/character development makes good viewing... I mean how long did it to take to develop the stereotypical corrupt guard scenario seen in every prison film and since when did they starting letting prisoners out on on the results of prison football matches...
Alright if you want mindless violence with no plot but compared to Green Street its conference league.
Violence for its own sake but,By Lelboy (269 reviews) from East London , 18 May 2012Quite a trashy, exploitative film, but worth a watch. I'd like to advise renters that I have had two defective copies of this film - both freeze at about 50 minutes - so if you do get a dodgy copy, perhaps you could do us all a favour and report it otherwise someone else gets sent out the same dodgy disc.
Stand your ground.By GofWarks (60 reviews) from Radford Semele , 13 May 2012Loads of swearing, fighting and general macho behaviour. Good stuff. The sub title 'stand your ground' was clever. It did not just apply to the main characters. It also applied to the straight gaoler to expose his bent colleague.
