Belfast, 1971: a young, rookie soldier, Gary Hook (Jack O’Connell – Starred Up, Unbroken, Skins), is sent on his first field operation as the British military deploy emergency troops to try to suppress the increasing violence.
When their first mission sparks a riot, Gary is accidentally abandoned by his unit in the frenzy. Unable to tell friend from foe, the raw recruit must survive the night and find his way back to base through a disorientating, alien and deadly landscape.
Directed by Yann Demange (Top Boy) and co-starring Sean Harris (Harry Brown), Richard Dormer (Game of Thrones) and Paul Anderson (Peaky Blinders, The Sweeney), ‘71 is a taut, gripping, edge-of-your-seat thriller.

When O'Connell's soldier boy is sent to Ireland amidst the unrest he doesn't realise the potential threat he faces. When his squadron is over run by rioters he gets left behind in an uncompromising dangerous environment. Every turn he takes or person he runs into has a potential threat but in order to survive and get back to safety he has to keep moving.
The story is tense and thrilling and moves along at a good pace. The action is realistic and brutal rather than over blown and O'Connell is a gripping watch. The human elements of the story work well and it does a good job of not taking sides or portraying anyone unfairly. The rioting etc is more of a backdrop than a focus which keeps the story engaging and well paced.
A great thriller that deserves attention.
and servicemen called in to talk about their experiences of combat stress.
Of all the wars and conflicts, most of the men (and it was all men) talked
about "the troubles" in Northern Ireland. Men who's lives were affected by
this conflict. One ex-soldier told of a harrowing story of picking up limps
after a bomb blast, and putting them in black bin liners If truth be known,
this was Britain's Vietnam, and if you lived in the 1970/80s never a week
or day passed without a bomb or shootings happening in Northern Ireland.
just over 1,000 British service personnel and RUC died in that conflict, never
mind the 47,000 casualties. So if you think this film is over-dramatic, or un-
real, think again., this violence happened ALL THE TIME.
This is a very good movie, and if you wanted to learn about the how and why
of the "Troubles", see this, and then watch Bloody Sunday, as both films deal
with the early days of the said "Troubles". Like it or not, this was a war, and a
lot of people did a lot bad things, on both sides.
The attention to period details is stunningly good, the acting is at times beyond acting it's like being there - too real for comfort and the way it shows the treatment of the Soldier at the end by the British Army is I think HOW IT WOULD HAVE BEEN BACK THEN Before the world went SILLY
The film is a lesson in FEAR AND HOW TO DEAL WITH IT - it shows well the feeling of Mistrust and confusion - Blind running Fear as in a state of SHOCK! - You will not be Disappointed!
