In this obvious US remake of the classic Brit borstal flick "Scum", Kim Chapiiron directs a hard hitting if watered down & far less brutal version of the horrors faced inside a young offenders institution, with inmates battling for supremacy.
I loved it! I truly believed that everything that happened in this movie may actually occur in real life..
Great emotional journey through the eyes of troubled youth
Es buena, la he visto más de 3 veces. El morbo que tiene una carcel/prision llama mucho la atención
I really enjoyed this movie. I think the cast was perfect and I think the plot was great. I recommend this
Congratulations to all who put this together and made it the compelling film that it is. Not a weak link here. Better than The Stanford Prison Experiment which has the same tense confined atmosphere throughout. Interesting to compare and contrast the experiences of the characters in these two movies.
(Wondered as I was watching where did America get its fine young actors from - then saw it's a Canadian movie!)
This survival tale in correction center is very dark and intense , that will leave you shaken
Despite the numerous prison cliches, this film fully engaged me as a viewer. It provides a gritty snapshot of life inside a correctional institution for boys and the director sufficiently built the story's suspense to a dramatic conclusion. Clearly the director is making the point about how incarcerated youth get caught in a cycle of recidivism due in no small part to the institution's culture. And yet the film's storyline, themes, and purpose don't seem sufficiently addressed by the conclusion of the film, leaving the viewer feeling hopeless and unsatisfied.
Its not that sophisticated or special but I can't deny being impressed with it's ending.
Not a bad adaptation from the film Scum, gripping and powerful and very much in line with the original version but in a more 21st century tone.
