Uses the setting well to create tension, but also struggles with the weight of it too
I will be honest and say that I generally am touchy about films using the sectarian terrorist organizations, the troubles, or other aspects of Northern Irish politics as a base for thrillers or films – mainly because when they do, they do so in a rather heavy-handed and thoughtless way such as The Devil’s Own, The Jackal, or many other such films. So with ’71 there is a certain odd feeling that uses the streets of Belfast in the early 1970’s as a launching point for a thriller involving British soldiers, terrorists on both sides of the divide, the RUC, and civilians of the time. This is not only an odd feeling that I had, but it is also one that the film itself seems to be all too aware of.

To talk generally the film does provide some good tension, with its fast pace, shifting ground, and hand-held camera-work; when it is doing this it is fine – not perfect, but fine. The sense of being trapped between all sides is apparent, and with the stakes high it does move well with what it does. The need to have all the players be clear and be positioned does rather reduce the pace a bit, but what does limit the film a bit is, ultimately, the politics of it. So, for some of this it is not the film that does this but rather the viewer – I guess particularly if you are familiar with the Troubles then it is hard to detach your personal opinions from the drama, which can make some of it harder to get into. The bigger thing though is that the film itself is conscious of this being a real situation, and as such it does know it carries a certain weight with it compared to if it had created this story in a fictional situation.

The cast carry this weight too, although mostly they do play out their characters as a more straightforward thriller – which helps the film be just that. O’Connell, Harris, Dormer, and others all play solid roles in the thriller side, even if the weight of the politics stop them just being genre devices, or being too details as real people. The pacing and structure of the film is good, and mostly it does manage to present the city streets of the Belfast roadblocks and no-go areas as oppressive and ensnaring if you are on the wrong side of them.

So as a thriller it mostly does work well thanks to the shifting narrative, and pace of delivery, however it is a film that senses the weight of the real story that it is using for the purposes of the thriller, and this knowledge does make a difference across the delivery.

Superficial thriller that fails to substantially engage with its setting
Based on the almost universally-favorable reviews of ’71, I was looking forward to a film being sold as an intelligent thriller that takes place in a complicated setting, the streets of Belfast, riven by sectarian violence, in 1971. Having seen it, I’m still trying to figure out what inspired such praise.

The best that ’71 has to offer is British army private Gary Hook, played ably by Jack O’Connell, struggling desperately to survive when his unit leaves him behind in a Catholic neighborhood where her majesty’s soldiers get little love. ’71’s pacing keeps the viewer on the edge of their seat, as Hook stumbles from frying pan to fire and back again, and its 100 or so minutes pass quickly. That works in the films favor, because it doesn’t give the viewer too much time to think about what’s happening on screen.

Temporary suspension of disbelief may be a prerequisite for viewing any action film, but ’71 crossed the boundary of plausibility so often that it takes away from the tension. I was not in Belfast in 1971, but I have spent time in an infantry unit, and the sequence of events that leads to Hook getting left behind is beyond preposterous.

Another factor that makes the action mostly unbelievable is that, besides the protagonist and an ex-army medic who summarizes military life in the film’s best line, none of the supporting characters seem real. They are two-dimensional characters of heartless terrorists, corrupt cops, jaded children, and green soldiers.

Obviously, the Troubles is a touchy subject that is difficult to treat even-handedly; ’71 simplifies the problem by just making almost everybody bad. If you’re looking for a chase film, it’s not hard to find one more believable than this, and if you want a movie about the Troubles, there are plenty that treat the subject with more intelligence and nuance.
