Absolutely fascinating film.

Normally, someone like Trevor would be an unbearable character to spend 70 minutes with, but Roth, Leland and Clarke make him into a fascinating embodiment of nihilism.

So true its worth watching even just to watch those expressions.

If you want to experience human (and cinematic) garbage in all its glory, go ahead, waste your money and life and see this movie.

A part of me wants to give it 10/10 because I have seen it ten times and are still fascinated by it, but when I think and compare it to other good films I notice its lack of story and feel it might only deserve 5-6/10.

This is riveting drama, marvelously performed and, like Shakespeare's _Othello_ or _Macbeth_, telling it like it is.

Even Errol is so confused in that confusing time in British history that he's willing to do harm to his homeopaths that is Paki's.

Actually, I say I enjoyed the journey, but actually even that was pointless.

Engaging and somewhat prophetic.

It's a raw, powerful piece, full of violent words and actions, but it is worth watching if only for the chance to see Tim Roth before he was famous.

I was bored out of my freaking mind, not to mention disturbed.

A riveting drama, and a shattering, must-see performance by Tim Roth-- .

But if you realise this character is only fictional, and no one really thinks like that these days, you might find Made in Britain a fairly entertaining hour.

The whole film evolves around him and there is no real plot.

Trevor's beliefs are so compelling that he even convinces a black teenager ( Errol ) to shout "You baboons, get back to the jungle!

Probably most enjoyable if you're a little bit of an anarchist yourself (everyone else will most likely just be offended by it).
