Violent crime sequel Rise of the Footsoldier: Vengeance comes to cinemas with Craig Fairbrass reprising his role as the brutal drug dealer Pat Tate.  

The sixth film in the series sees Tate embark on a bloody rampage to avenge the death of one of his most loyal foot soldiers. He leaves Essex for the backstreets of Soho, where he takes on sadistic kingpins in his quest for vengeance. 

The previous instalment in the series made less than $400,000 at the box office, though it was released in cinemas at the height of the Covid pandemic, and the three previous films were either direct to video or VOD releases.

Vengeance is therefore the first instalment in the series to get a proper cinematic release since the original film more than 15 years ago.

In what order should you watch the Rise of the Footsoldier films?

The Rise of the Footsoldier films will make sense if you watch them in the order they were released, but you can also watch them in chronological order. 

The first two films are based on the autobiography of Inter City Firm football hooligan Carlton Leach who later became a notorious gangster. 

The third, fourth, fifth, and sixth films are all prequels following drug dealers Pat Tate and Tony Tucker, both real life figures who were killed in the 1995 Rettendon murders. 

Pat and Tony are secondary characters in the first two films of the franchise, but are the primary figures in the prequels. 

So the best order to watch the films in is either as they were released (1-6), or chronological order (3-6 followed by 1-2).
