A tense and compact thriller that manages to excite and educate about a specific historical era, while also finding some touching moments of humanity amidst all the violence. The film unfolds sort of like a docudrama, briefly establishing characters and then immersing them in the heat of conflict without much exposition, which heightens the film's tension and explosive effect. A hidden gem of 2014 and smartly and thoroughly executed.

Most Americans know next to nothing about The Troubles and "'71" doesn't do a hell of a lot of hand holding, but paints the conflict in broad strokes. Importantly, "'71" is quite effective at showing the kind of crazy that was going on in Ireland during the time, not a lot of movies have done that before. I had a hard time in figuring out what exactly was going on, who was on what side, but maybe that's the point. It's a decent movie, not a whole lot more.

A good natured British soldier is tossed through a meat-grinder and endures an unbelievable amount of horrible coincidences as a way of illustrating how fucked up the streets of Belfast were in 1971. Sometimes the action is exciting, but one gets the impression the soldier is merely a sacrificial lamb, and the surrounding conflict is merely a metaphor for "violence begets violence" and "think about the children". Not a horrible message film, but a little too on the nose for my tastes.

Atmospheric thriller, which gets to the meat of the plot very early on, and then turns into a suspenseful game of cat-and-mouse played out in dark, moody locations with a few neatly portrayed supporting characters. The director did a good job of portraying how confusing the N.I. situation can be for an outsider, and how loyalties can depend on many unpredictable factors. I thought the ending was a bit of a let-down though, quite formulaic. The first half however was gripping.

Really disappointed in this one. Horribly shot and edited action props up a cliche riddled story with characters so thin they are actually hard to tell apart. Surprised by all the high scores for this, especially surprised by all the praise Jack O'Connell has gotten for his underwhelming performance in an underwritten role.

A graphic movie about a horrendous true story. There is pretty much non-stop action. The young soldier finds himself at the wrong place at the wrong time & his struggle to survive was both scary & riveting. I needed subtitles for the spoken English. Their thick accents were hard to understand. Acting performances were excellent throughout. Jack O'Connell made an excellent lead. Production quality was good. Music and sound was also good. There was not much setup to the story though.

The raw action works and builds up some really intense moments, especially in the first half, but the structure of the ungrateful army and its alway-evil characters felt a little outworn for my taste.

Very well executed thriller that delivers a lot more than it might promise to. Shaky-cam for once works, and in the early chase scene works spectacularly well, and the brutality, complexity, fear and confusion of the troubles are portrayed in a gripping manner. Disappointingly it also contains a fair few plot cliches, but definitely worth a go.

Cheesy book-ends and a slightly muddled anti-war message but it's an alright action/thriller. "posh cunts telling thick cunts to kill poor cunts" indeed.

A fine movie that keeps the tension going during its 90 or so minutes. The performances are all pretty good here, especially that of the lead (Jack O'Connell) and the young Protestant boy he encounters part of the way through. Great cinematography, and I especially like the film's use of color. Belfast is bathed in yellow-orange throughout the movie, which is meant to show the sickness of the city due to the rioting and factionalism. The ending is also highly successful and fittingly melancholy.

really excellent thriller with simple but sharply sketched characters and a keen eye for how what starts as a "routine" scenario can immediately go out of control, and an even keener eye for depicting this kind of violence as harrowing rather than exciting. a unique almost kitchen-sink aesthetic that's halfway between Munich and John Carpenter's Escape From Belfast.

Film doesn't tell much about our protagonist. The gist of it is that he is a good guy. We follow him through the boot camp montage, then through bonding with his wee bruv montage, and following his unit deployment to Belfast all hell breaks loose. It might be done on purpose - to give the impression of murkiness of this conflict - but the film lost me at this point. Very confusing story; I had trouble understanding who is on whose side. Oh and shaky-cam action - does anyone even like that?
