Audience Reviews for '71

    Once I passed the triteness of its opening and closing parts and some conveniences of the plot, I couldn't feel any other way but astound by the pace and gripping cinéma vérité style of newcomer Yann Demange. Paranoia, rage, discomfort or panic are some of the myriad of emotions dexteriously captured to give substance to a survival drama that in some other hands wouldn't be as effective or thrilling. The cast is also responsible for the achievement in realism and suspense.

    Having no real clue on what this film was about but with all the praise it got I gave it a watch, And I'm so glad I did, It's a very powerful film, Brilliantly acted by everyone involved, A good story and very gripping from start to finish, It can be quite gruesome and dark at times but it works very well, Jack O'Connells best performance yet.

    A newbie soldier sent to Dublin during The Troubles gets separated from his unit while in hostile territory and must make his way back or die. What's interesting is the tension between those simply trying to survive versus the ruthlessness of policy makers. The movie fan me kept waiting for the soldier to be more proactive, ala John Wayne, and was constantly disappointed. And the ending is too predictable.
