Storyline

A group of bored Roman Catholic teens from Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom, steal cars and joyride around the city, causing havoc among the nearby Protestants and local Irish Republican Army members, all of who are outraged by the youths' nihilism. The gang, led by ace thief Sean (Marc O'Shea), is connected with the IRA but couldn't care less about the group's politics. But things turn serious when an IRA member captures one of the boys, Marley (Michael Liebmann), in an effort to end the mayhem. Written by Owen

A staple of British Columbia's "Knowledge Network" programming
27 March 2008 | by (Vancouver, BC) – See all my reviews

I still have a copy of this film on VHS that I taped off of BC's Knowledge Netwrok TV station. I remember scrambling for a tape when it was rerun for the third time. The previous two times I had caught it in the middle of one of its insanely violent sequences that disturbed me deeply when I saw it at the age of ten. There were moments where I was unsure if it was a documentary or reality. I recall the scene where a juvenile delinquent is taken out to an old shack by vigilantes and has his hands repeatedly smashed with a wooden club. "Put your hands on the table! Put your f***kin hands on the table!" SMASH! "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" "Put your hands back on the table! Put your hands back on the table!" SMASH! "AHHHHHHHHHH!" I also recall that one of the actresses in the film turned up briefly during the Uma Thurman overdose scene in Pulp Fiction shortly thereafter. A fascinating piece of ultra-violence.
