The 10 Best Soccer Movies in History

84th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

The Firm

Gary Oldman as the leader of West Ham’s Inner City Firm? Count me in. The Firm is one of the best soccer movies out there because it inspired many others, including The Football Factory and Green Street Hooligans (spoiler alert: Green Street will make an appearance on this list). Gary Oldman’s, as always, solid performance and the film’s focus of the lives of those off the pitch, the hardcore, die hard fans of the game, make The Firm a worthwhile watch even 20 years after it was first released.
