Storyline

'H3' is a universal story of endurance and courage set inside Europe's most secure prison, the Maze prison in Northern Ireland. Here, in H3 - the bleakest of all the H-blocks - a group of young republican prisoners hold out for what they believe in, refusing to be labeled as criminals or co-operate with prison authorities. However, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher is determined that these Republican prisoners will be treated like all the other common criminals in British jails, ending a special regime which allowed the inmates political status to organise life inside the jail along POW lines.

Powerful, Thorough, Saddening

A very powerful insight into the heroics of the '81 Hunger Striekrs in Long Kesh. The film is not an OTT Hollywood Blockbuster which stops it encumbering the real life predicament faced by these martyrs; be prepared to die, or be treated like criminals.

Although he film has a republican bias, it does give an idea as to the conditions faced by both sides of the divide in Her Majesty's excuse for a prison.

Some may feel the portrayal of Bobby Sands takes away from he mythical iconic figure he is portrayed as in republican Ireland, otherwise a terrific film
