Blu-ray Release: ’71

July 7, 2015

By John Corrado

'71 Blu-rayToday, Elevation Pictures is releasing the excellent and highly recommended thriller ’71 on Blu-ray.  The year is 1971, and after his troop is deployed to a small town in Belfast right on the border of the Protestant and Catholic conflicts, a young soldier (Jack O’Connell) gets lost in the increasingly violent riots and has to find a way to survive the night, always at threat of being captured or killed.

With rock solid leading work from breakout star Jack O’Connell, ’71 is a very well crafted thriller that mixes quiet character drama and intensely gritty action, to riveting and constantly suspenseful effect.  It’s gripping viewing, and our three views of the film can be found right here.

The Blu-ray includes no bonus features.

’71 is 99 minutes and rated 18A.
