Editorial Reviews

When a soldier returns from Iraq and takes a job as a prison guard, he quickly realizes that the only thing distinguishing the prisoners from the screws (British slang for guard) is who holds the key. Based on the bestselling book and the real-life experiences of Ronnie Thompson who spent seven years working in some of England s toughest prisons Screwed is an eye-opening exposé of the corrupt underworld of prison guards ... A dark realm where brutality, gang affiliations, drug trafficking and big pay-offs rule. But ultimately, being on the right side of the bars doesn't always mean sticking to the rules.

Customer Reviews

The film flowed with a good level of energy and the plot was solid from beginning to end.
WaterRabbit
His life spirals out of control, the thing he was trying to prevent, and he doesn't realize it.
The Movie Guy
My main complaint about this movie is that there are no characters that make me like them.

Screwed is a serious take on the life of an ex-squaddie and what life is like in one of the tougher British Prisons as an active prison guard. The story is based on the experiences of Ronnie Thompson, who wrote a book about it and also penned the screenplay to this film. Thompson spent seven years working in various prisons and the screenplay is based on the book and the experiences he went through in the job.

James D'Arcy plays the lead role of Sam Norwood and plays it really well. It is quite a versatile role in that he had to play an ex-squaddie, just back from Iraq and portray all that goes with that. He suffers from nightmares and flashbacks and the death of his friend dying in his arms haunts him. Not the best grounding for working in an enclosed space with hardened criminals who have the ability to spontaneously self-combust at any moment. Darcy, whose real name is Simon D'Arcy is an accomplished actor who has been around since nineteen ninety-five and starred in many TV productions and many big name movies. His latest work includes the role of Anthony Perkins in Hitchcock. He was brilliant in that and it is a movie I well may review at a future date. He is a grounded young man and very versatile. In an interview he was quoted as saying 'I don't have any expectations as an actor and being rich and famous is not my driving force. I'm not really very ambitious. I'm more interested in enjoying my life and looking after my family than being hugely successful. There are lots of people I admire and respect, but I don't necessarily want to be like them. I'm too happy being myself.' Now if you can't admire that, then what can you admire? Darcy's performance is the lynch-pin of the movie and I think he did a great job.

Sam (James D'Arcy) returns from Iraq and wonders about his future. He turns down an easy drug dealing job from his mates to go work as a prison guard. As a prison guard he gets caught in the middle of the politics of crooked guards, drug dealing prisoners, and an unscrupulous wing governor. His life spirals out of control, the thing he was trying to prevent, and he doesn't realize it.

The film starts out interesting and draws you in. However, after about 90 minutes or so, you can't wait for it to be over. James D'Arcy plays Sam in a rather bland almost characterless fashion. His character was hard to get into, and as the centerpiece of the film, he was a hard guy to root for as he becomes his own enemy.

Not the best British crime drama out there, but it does seem like the longest.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity.

I gave this film 5 stars partly to offset some other reviews that were unfair, in my view. First the acting was top rate as was the script. The film flowed with a good level of energy and the plot was solid from beginning to end. Some reviewers have the habit of rating a film based on the type of film it is, for example (a Western) and they do not like them so they give it 1 star, even though it was a well made movie. This is basically an action film and it's theme is good vs. evil and total power corrupts totally, plus the "good guy" gets the girl in the end! What's not to like. 100% CapeCodMediaKing approved..................

To be honest, I'm not sure that I would actually recommend this movie. This is a tough one to say. I like the British movies very much but this one seems to drag its feet something awful. My main complaint about this movie is that there are no characters that make me like them. The DVD cover says " honest, brutal, gripping" I didn't get that. maybe it just wasn't my cup of tea but all I got was mumbling and anger and whining.

I could hardly understand a word they said. Basically, your typical prison flick. The guards are doing more drugs than the convicts. The convicts are beating on the officers and themselves. Nothing new here. Watch any jailhouse movie and you'd be on par for the action this movie provides. Watch if you have some time to kill.
