Justice needs to be served at Britain's most notorious young offenders institute.

The critical consensus

Great performances from Joe Cole and English Frank let down by derivative plotting.

**(*)(*)(*)Tom Dawson, The List, 28/07/2012

Ron Scalpello’s brutal debut about a young offenders’ institution hammers its messages home with a sock full of snooker balls.

***(*)(*)Paul Bradshaw, Total Film, 27/07/2012

A solid revenge thriller in which Cole excels.

***(*)(*)Anna Smith, Empire Online, 06/08/2012

The film heads in exactly the direction audiences might expect, without working hard enough to make the journey 
feel as fresh as its ripped-from-the-headline story really demands.

**(*)(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 09/08/2012

The plot and characters are lame and implausible, the dialogue is banal and the acting mediocre. Not an imprisonable offence, but nearly.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)David Cox, The Guardian, 09/08/2012

Offender has little revealing or useful to say about the appalling conditions in juvenile prisons.

Philip French, The Observer, 12/08/2012

Comes across as simply nasty, brutish and pointless.
