Northwest Military's Review

Richard Roeper on March 18th, 2015

Jack O'Connell (Unbroken) gives a stirring performance as a green recruit with the British Army deployed to Belfast in 1971 and caught up in a riot. This is one of those intense war thrillers where you know it's fiction, you know it's not a documentary, and yet every performance and every conflict feels true to the history and the events of the time. - Three and a half stars
