Critic Reviews for Screwed

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5)

Everything is too extreme. But there's a core of honesty here.

June 5, 2011 | Full Review…

Here we get everything nasty piled up like a great bag of detritus, and hardly a hint of anything positive at all.

June 3, 2011 | Rating: 2/5

The violence is unrelenting, scene after scene of it, and spectacularly unenlightening: like watching rottweilers gone feral.

Top Critic

Reg Traviss's overlong thriller spews out clichés from the off.

June 1, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

No matter how hard it tries, Screwed can't escape the shadows of the very best prison dramas it's trying to emulate.

August 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Screwed may be based on the true-life experiences of former prison guard Ronnie Thompson but it seems to serve up every available cliché from the handbook of tough nut British prison dramas.
