'71 is unreal

5 second plot: In 1971 a young British soldier gets left behind on his first mission in a not so friendly neighborhood of Belfast. He doesn't know the way back and he's got a couple of thugs on his tail thirsty for his blood.

5 second review: It's a grey, tense movie about an awful 'confused' situation. We are not forced to take sides, except against those who use violence as a means to a resolution. The situation might be 'confused', but right is still right and wrong is still wrong. It feels unreal, but it was very real for the innocent people living there. The movie does a great job waking us up to remember this terrible time and place.

IMDb score: 7,6/10
