Northern Ireland: Come for the car bombings, stay for the ethno-nationalist conflict.

'71

A young, British army recruit (Jack O'Connell from 300: Rise of an Empire) graduates boot camp only to find himself smack dab in the middle of "The Troubles" in northern Ireland, circa 1971. On his first day out, our protagonist gets ambushed by Catholic nationalists and left behind by his squad. For one tension-filled night, he's got to figure out who his friends are, what his enemies look like and how he's going to stay alive on the riot-torn streets of Belfast. This raw, minimalist thriller ignores political history in favor of brutal, breathless action. FULL REVIEW: Fast-paced British thriller drops viewers into the middle of the Northern Ireland conflict for some bruising action by Devin D. O’Leary (3/19/2015). 99 minutes R.
