Elderly British monarchy, strained groaned and erupted from your womb ugly baby — bourgeois democracy. The baby rubbed his puffy eyes, he polozil back — forward crept in countries and continents, quickly picking up speed and leaving bloody fingerprints chubby handprints. Handle newborn short, and at first he takes them that nearby — Scotland and Ireland...

Northern Ireland is the part of the United Kingdom, but does it not very happy. Most of the indigenous (actually Irish) population professes Catholicism and desperately fighting against the British colonialists and Irish Protestants (loyalists), they help. 70 — years of the twentieth century — the period of exacerbation in the relations of Catholics and Protestants: shooting, explosions, worried about the British sending in troops to Northern Ireland.

Gary hook — British soldiers deployed in Belfast in 1971. The local police carries out an operation for the removal of weapons from supporters of the IRA, the army used as a cover. The local population meets the carriers of democracy happily — stones curses. Saving soldiers from an angry mob, the officer gives the order to retreat, and forgets two of the wards in the middle of the raging crowd. Whether the soldiers to survive in the city, burning with hatred and bloodlust?

The Director immediately best of optimistic, Belfast is shown as the war zone: dark, dangerous streets, burning cars, kids playing peacefully in the smoke of fires under the sounds of shooting and explosions. The viewer almost nothing knows Gary hook, and the Director immediately throws the character in the Inferno. Phlegmatic on the nature of the Irish, very inspired at the sight of a military uniform, and trying to show the media shapes their position, concluding his arms, and jamming to until it will draws his last breath. Gary is forced to flee from the hospitality of the Irish, all that it makes this film is defined by one word: survival.

Gary runs on the hostile streets, the camera jumps frantically in the hands of the operator (in this style shoot war correspondents), two part of a single nation destroy each other, and the secret services skillfully manipulated by both sides in the conflict. What — it resembles, does not it? To survive alone in a strange city is not possible, the soldier meets a charming, naplatanova boy — loyalist (Corey McKinley), a kind of Virgil, a guide through the Irish hell. Boy simply replays On 'connell. He suppresses a confused soldier intelligence, arrogance, judgment:

You — absolutely.
I don't know.
Don't know? Stupid moron.

Chips, beer, show-off, and all so naturally, I want to whine from excitement. It is a pity that the role is very small. Before our eyes is a bestiary, a gallery of colorful Irish types: the terrorists of the IRA, their enemies — Protestant; all dressed the fashion of the seventies — bell bottoms, sideburns, long hair. In the film employed: Richard Dormer (Game of thrones, Fortitude) to the role of the doctor holding the threat in times of conflict the position — neutral. A number of the actors moved in this charming series of Love/Hate. Killian Scott, Charlie Murphy, Barry Keoghan — all is standing in the Irish movie, all cast in combat.

Through the efforts of the author of the script, the agony of the hook so grab that the heart beats where — in the throat. In the most dangerous to hero moments keep breathing, so as not to give yourself it — he was hunted by the IRA and British intelligence (see what not should). Belfast is shown as a very dangerous place, where there are no laws, the streets are deserted and sinister, and human life — the fine thread, the ends of which are whose — the unkind hands. Bodies a bit, not more than twenty.

The war in Ulster is remarkably similar meaning with the current bloodshed in the Donbass. Of course, there was not Grad and field battles. But do not it. Those are important the most meanings. They everyone has their own — the ideological fighters from both sides, from civil, trying by hook and by crook to survive on the front line, from the army finally have special agents, who war — your own mother. Rate, what is the bestiary!!! A result in all the diversity involved, one — blood buckets, barrels, the ocean of blood! The film is very tightly stuffed video participants and shed their blood. In some moments the viewer after the main character loses orientation — where are the friends where are the enemies? But the authors, embodied in the member hook, know exactly where the truth. The truth in life. It is true in love for others (if I forgot — advised to consult the gospel).

The film is good, film is important. Recommend. Not lose imagine an ordinary hook in the light of the future. I each you have your "brother in the boarding school."

For most films in the genre of "military Thriller," the plot involves the traditional and, as a rule, predictable development of the plot — this sin a very eminent Directors, on all frets capitalizing epic problems hot conflicts and competing with mass shootings and the courage of the heroes. In a result almost all the films of the past few years in the same genre are (in my opinion) at least gaudy. However, many of them turned out to be quite the cash and ratings, but... tastes. I bet.

When you look at the picture with a low rating, but still from neimenityh Director, it's hard to be objective and unbiased. "71" — the first feature-length film by Jan Demana, but start watching "71", not hurry forecasts... the Plot begins to develop easy and pretty obvious — with the debut of a young rookie in the everyday life of the British army "pacifying" hot Belfast in 1971. Knowing it is the genre, inadvertently expect a performance full of bravado and Hollywood pathos. But we have the British film and from a certain moment what is happening in the screen unfolds in exciting a completely unpredictable sequence, drawing as the magnet, and the dynamics of the film becomes so tense that viewing is simply impossible to break away.

The wounded soldiers were in mortal danger in the hostile to British peacekeepers blocks, it absolutely confused, and you begin to ask yourself the question: "What would I did a similar situation on his place?" Me at this picture only one confused — why Jan Demanzh to still we shot for quite a little series on different topics? Fans of dumb fighters to watch the picture is definitely not need (still not like). Those who prefer an excellent British thrillers (not necessarily military) with amazing suspense, to see the "71" is required. About tastes. I bet, but for me, "71" —
