Observer (UK)

Muddled and sentimental, it is an unilluminating experience.

Daily Mirror (UK)

Screwed isn't just low rent, it comes with a finale so daft that the writer deserves six months in solitary.

Daily Express (UK)

It's well acted - especially by the underused Craig Parkinson as the resident psycho - but is by turns dull and unpleasant.

Derek Malcolm
London Evening Standard

There's virtually nothing here that we haven't seen before; the best of it is the acting of a fine cast which also includes Art Malik and David Schofield.

Peter Bradshaw

There is an uncomfortable naivety in the film's assumption that violence, when practised by the righteous, can be cathartic or redemptive.

A porridge of prison movie clichés.
