Everything is too extreme. But there's a core of honesty here.

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.

Daily Express (UK)

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.

London Evening Standard

It's all been done before, and done better, but its look at how prison warders are failed by the system demands our attention.

Audience Reviews for Screwed


The dialogue was hard to understand at times with the accent, but really suspenseful film, good acting and solid story.
