Sway, no not sway, manipulate, would be a better word, that's what they do go get people to do their bidding. But did we not all know this to begin with, I think we all do (or should do). Given that, the writers and producers should have realized that's not the main or even a section of an interesting story. The film has really not taken a stand one way or the other, apart from a tv-soap opera standpoint. All very wishy-washy. And that is the greatest loss. The acting is about as good as you get on tv, and this is where this should have stayed - on tv. Trite contrivances, the "racist" copper, married to a lady of colour, is just too much. The loss and gain of the promotion, would be better suited to again episodic tv. Some of the acting is very strange, like the main characters wife, she plays the wife of a muslim, but she obviously isn't, and here 'stand offishness' and uncomfortableness is all too apparent in her performance. Even Brian Cox who appearance was surprising, seems to be well (very well) below par. The dialog is very poor in quality, and it's all to apparent that the screen play was by someone who does not really understand the fundamentals of a) a three act play, b) realistic dialog. c) key elements of the story that are so obvious that even if it was raining cats and dogs you still see it coming. And that's really a cardinal sin in terms of a screen play that no-one seems to have understood in this production, that you never, ever let the audience get in front of the story. Here you can get 30min ahead, which thus makes it boring, stayed and ultimately very uninteresting. A obvious, trite film that really offers the viewing public, nothing new, nothing interest, and nothing praiseworthy. I for one hope and pray that this is not a general indication of the British film industry.

Carlos M (au) wrote: Written by an actual therapist following his own experiences, this gripping drama offers an extremely realistic view of prison that makes us feel like watching a documentary, and it is brutal and touching when it needs to be, anchored by superb performances (O'Connell is a revelation).
