Synopsis

It's 1971. Young British Army soldiers Gary (Jack O'Connell) and Thommo (Jack Lowden) are still in training, learning military discipline as their unit prepares for duty in Germany. When plans change, the two, along with their unit of mostly untested men barely out of school, are dropped into the violence taking place in Northern Ireland.

Belfast, divided by religion and politics, is experiencing unpredictable violence between the Protestant Loyalist areas and the mostly Catholic Nationalist districts whose inhabitants oppose British rule. Gary and Thommo's squad is immediately ordered to patrol a Catholic area, but when Gary is separated from his unit, he finds himself in a life-threatening position.

  • 3 stars "not bad movie gives a hint of what happened in UK that time"
  • 2 stars "Was ok not great"
  • 4 stars "This is a well acted and suspenseful film. It depicts the duplicity of The Troubles by taking one story and examining its players over a 24 hour period."
