Screwed may be based on the true-life experiences of former prison guard Ronnie Thompson but it seems to serve up every available cliché from the handbook of tough nut British prison dramas.
Watchable collection of prison movie clichés, enlivened by strong performances and pacey direction.
Here we get everything nasty piled up like a great bag of detritus, and hardly a hint of anything positive at all.
It's all been done before, and done better, but its look at how prison warders are failed by the system demands our attention.
Noel Clarke shines as a cocky prisoner, and the film's best scenes are those in which he goes eyeball to eyeball with D'Arcy's greenhorn guard.
The violence is unrelenting, scene after scene of it, and spectacularly unenlightening: like watching rottweilers gone feral.
D'Arcy and Harper excel and there's the odd punch packed, but otherwise it's an identity parade of prison clichés you've seen a thousand times.
