Disappointing
13 October 2017 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Plodding and unimaginative. It was obviously made on a shoestring budget. Even the excellent Tom Vaughan-Lawlor cannot overcome predictable action sequences and hackneyed dialogue. Both sets of prisoners - republican and loyalist - are presented as implausibly mild caricatures of the truly dangerous men they obviously were in reality.
