A good movie

To be honest, I can’t remember why I wanted to check this movie in the first place. I guess it seemed to have a decent reputation so I thought I might as well check it out. Anyway, it turned out to be a gritty thriller with an interesting historical background.

I wanted to see this for Jack O'Connell as he has risen up the charts of the film industry. I remember him starting off relatively unknown and playing mostly bit parts. It seems with only a few roles as a lead he has finally gotten noticed as being quite the star. Another reason I notice before watching this is that Yann Demange who directed the zombie TV series Dead Set (which is one of my favori... read more

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Superficially, this movie is a nail-biting thriller. The way it presents an atmosphere of ever-present danger is nothing short of perfect. I wasn't clear on the reason behind it all, though; you really need to know the history beforehand going into this movie. Wanting to shoot British soldiers on sight is one thing, but this group of Nationalists goes so far as to ... read more

A good movie

“To be honest, I can’t remember why I wanted to check this movie in the first place. I guess it seemed to have a decent reputation so I thought I might as well check it out. Anyway, it turned out to be a gritty thriller with an interesting historical background. Basically, what you get to see is the main character going from one spot to another, trying to make it through the night, and not much else to be honest.  Concerning Jack O'Connell, he was not bad and it was a nice touch to see him with his little brother who was there obviously to explain why this guy would choose to join the army but, eventually, his character was actually barely developed. However, they did put a lot of focus on the historical background which felt so genuine and convincing that it eventually did manage to com” read more

"I've been wanting to watch this for a few years now. Jack O'Connell is one of my newer favorites after his great performances. He was good in this too. Belfast as a setting in the 70's and the two fighting sides brought intensity and unnerving feeling to the action. "

"Kuzey İrlanda sorunun devam ettiği 1971 yılında Belfast'ta bir ayaklanma çıkar ve ayaklanmayı bastırmak üzere bölgeye askeri bir birlik gönderilir. Bu birliğin içinde yer alan Gary Hook adlı genç İngiliz asker, birlikleri tarafından bu bölgede unutularak birliğinden ayrı düşer. Ölümün kol gezdiği sokaklarda bir başına kalan ve aklı karışan Gary, hem IRA hem de İngiliz kuvvetlerinin hedefi haline gelirken, yalnız hissettiği topraklarda hayatta kalmaya çalışaca"

" DVD- 1hr. 39min. First Viewing A thrilling quasi-history lesson, '71 is a strong effort that loses effort only when it lets off the throttle. Jack O'Connell is strong here, doing just enough character work to add some personal attachment so that the thrill have more weight. The action, as noted, is the film's selling point, and it does not disappoint. "

"When: August 13th First-Time Viewing: Yes. How: DVD from the library. What'd I Think?: Mostly engaging, well acted war drama, but suffers from a feeling of predictability, and isn't as emotionally engaging as it should be. My Rating: 7/10 Other Notes: NA. "
