Demange’s light touch on political disquisition serves well the frenetic pace of this film, allowing him to maintain full velocity without pausing to clearly identify or accurately position the various factions, informers, and double agents that complicate Hook’s flight to safety. Yet, this ambitious action drama nonetheless skillfully folds subtle but substantive political nuances into its brisk running time.

Director Yann Demange’s feature film debut merges Greengrass’ kinetic camerawork with Sheridan’s character-driven drama; the result is a taut, suspenseful and involving feature that runs a tight 99 minutes.

There’s a tonal dissonance here: The gangster-movie dialogue of these different groups, as well as a somewhat lame late movie shoot-out, feel far removed from the terse, beautifully choreographed pandemonium of the film’s first act. But whenever the film focuses on Gary, it’s O’Connell’s show. And the actor’s ability to quietly express a whole range of emotions with his body language and his eyes, is staggering — especially since, for much of the film, he’s limping and covered in blood.

  • Tigrão's rating of the film '71

    There is no badassery in there, no sense of heroism (except maybe from the family rescuing him). Sides seem harder to define as the film goes on, describing these troubled times in a formidably gripping fashion.

  • Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film '71

    There are plot points that feel too convenient, but all in all this is an extraordinary debut by Yann Demange, in which he showcases great aptitude for suspense and poetic reality. Some scenes will undoubtedly stay with me for a long time.

  • Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film '71

    Harrowing and powerful. Grand performance by Jack O'Connell, giving the film an anchor of emotional weight. The action scenes all have a sense of clarity (even the handheld ones) and are riveting. Also, the audience can feel the power of every moment that its injured and sympathetic hero is powerless, as well as feel emotion for every lost life, even the enemies. Reworks and transcends the genre in many moments.

  • msmichel's rating of the film '71

    FNC '14 Incredible directorial feature debut from Yann Demange which viscerally puts us into 'the troubles' through the eyes of a young soldier who finds himself left behind by his squad and struggles to find a way back to the barracks while factions from all sides want him dead. Muscular direction, impressive cinematography and editing and a star making turn by Jack O'Connell make this quite memorable.

  • J. O.'s rating of the film '71

    Flaws? There is an oversimplification and generic quality to the "them versus them" story, which is something I expected from the director. But otherwise this was easily the grittiest and most tense film of the year - if not many - and certainly is not to be missed. The camera work is hypnotic and disorienting with a pallid atmosphere, the performances are brilliant, and the soundtrack pulses with fury.

  • Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film '71

    Breathtaking political action thriller, skillfully shot, competently structured, and filled with creepy tense moments.

  • Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film '71

    Once I passed the triteness of its opening and closing parts and some conveniences of the plot, I couldn't feel any other way but astound by the pace and gripping cinéma vérité style of newcomer Yann Demange. Paranoia, rage, discomfort or panic are some of the myriad of emotions dexteriously captured to give substance to a survival drama that in some other hands wouldn't be as effective or thrilling.

  • josé neves's rating of the film '71

    The sad legacy of the Bourne series and the last two miserable Bigelow films keep on to be felt in current cinema: shaky camera pounding around the characters and spaces, random-pitched editing that creates noise rather than setting space(s). However, towards the end, the director found a tripod and structure what had despised meanwhile: density and time, making a good movie at those moments.
