Only one word describes this movie - Amazing and Sad. Describes the difficult life of the inmates in British Borstal in the old days. 9/10. A Classic.

This film potrayed a youth incarceration system that just didnt work, Corruption and brutality ran amok and several years later the Borstal system was torn down and made way for prison reforms regarding youngsters in the UK. Classic film and still as hard hitting as it was back then. 8/10

I was a teenager when this came out, and bluffed my way into the cinema to watch. In some ways I wish I hadnt. Made me feel sick in the stomach in one part. There are some things one should not see. They will stay with you for a long time if not the rest of your life.

why do people think the ending was a let down or rubbish? fitted exactly , better than an unrealistic fairytale hollywood one anyway.

One word to describe what I just watched,..sadness. I found myself overwhelmed by the inability of the men in charge of these young men and boys to recognize in them their own humanity. Contempt breeds contempt and enables the circle of violence and depravity to be unbroken. Although made in 1979 one thing that remains true of all prison system juvenile or adult is the mixing of inmates regardless of crimes. Why would you put a check forger in the same company of a murderer or a thief in the company of a psychopath. Some people come out of prisons worse than when they went in bc of the measures they have to take to survive.

This came way before Sean Penn's Bad Boys. Ending was a let down. Both were good for their time. Check them out daddy....
