Goofs

In the final fight scene between Mick & Paco, Paco has Mick against the bunk, Mick is standing on the left of screen, while Paco is standing right of screen, and stabs him in his right shoulder. Then the camera cuts suddenly to both Mick and Paco in another fighting position, with Mick now on the right side, and Paco on the left, as if there was a cut in the film. See more »

Intense view into crazy youths
16 January 2007 | by (Glasgow, Scotland) – See all my reviews

This film shows a world that most people will never ever see. It blasts you into this intense, horrible, psychological nightmare. Thinking of what it would be like to be a part of this facility creeps me out.

The acting is top class and there are loads of familiar face that make you laugh when you think of them in recent films ha ha.

I don't want to give anything away but if you like harsh movie you will love this one! things like KIDS, Doom Generation, Thirteen etc Great movie 10 out of 10.

This film had made me want to watch more of the directors works. If this is his standard then im sure i will not be disappointed.

Lloyd Alexander
