Reviews

Dog Pound is Scum for the 21st Century, a tough and brutal film set in a young offenders institute for teenage boys that the system doesn’t know what to do with. The long-term inmates have built a rigid power structure based on fear and the guards use the prisoners to let out their own frustrations.

Butch, Davis and Angel are new arrivals. They have never met before but they soon realize that the odds are stacked against them and that their only hope for getting through their sentences is if they watch each others’ backs. But friendship will only get them so far when their endurance is stretched to the limit.

Kim Chapiron (Sheitan) directs a brutal and action-packed prison drama that takes a long hard look at the juvenile justice system.

Format: DVD
This is a Canadian, and is `highly influenced by British Borstal film Scum', according to Wikipedia. It tells the tale of three young offenders who all get sent to a Juvenile Correctional Facility called Enola Vale. There they are initiated into the strict and regimented world of youth detention, and the three tier system of privilege.

The lowest are forced to wear the orange jump suits, middle, ordinary prison garb and the top are `Trustees', and they get to wear black polo shirts. They are also the head honchos and lead bullies. The three new kids soon attract a lot of unwanted attention and things sort of spiral from there.

This is a re-telling of Ray Whinstone's first major film `Scum'. He was a relative unknown then and all of the actors here are too. They all do an admirable job especially Adan Butcher who plays `Butch'. Director and co-write Kim Champiron has done a great job of making the players believable and that goes for the guards too. This is a regime that in many ways is as hard on the guards as it is on the guarded.

Enola Vale is described as `A place to grow and learn', most of what these kids will learn will not be in societies interests. So is it any good? Well I actually really liked (not enjoyed) it for what it was portraying and the way it was done. If you have seen Scum, then some of the plot will be all too familiar. However, that said this works too and has enough of its own identity to stand on its own merits. If you have not seen Scum, then you have missed a Brit classic. All in all a very good effort in what is a controversial and difficult area.

I have just watched this film and I can say it is really very good, its about a group of teenagers who get locked up for a stint in a young offenders institute for varing crimes. One of whom is called Butch who in his previous institute beat up and blinded one of the guards.

He befiends two other inmates (Angel & Davis)and slowly adapst to prison life. Without spoiling anything for anyone wishing to purchase this film if you have seen a very good British film called Scum with the fantastic and very young Ray Winstone then you can guess what this film is like as its a direct copy of that.

Yes its brutally violent and has some pretty nasty scenes, two come to mind, one in the showers (very bloody and painful) and one in a laundry room (This act should NEVER happen to anyone)

What makes this film so good are the young actors who play the inmates they are all unknown and they all put in a very good solid performance. The run time is just about right 90 mins or so.

Totally recommend this film to anyone who is into prison/young offender flicks but for heavens sake dont watch it with children or your better half.... definatly a lads film..

I really enjoyed this film. This is a low budget young offenders action drama with plenty of punch and shocking behaviour to entertain, shock and enjoy. The acting is solid and the fact the cast is all unknown is great. A great watch for 2011, along the lines of ace TV series Oz and it dicks all over recent prison film The Experiment. Strong themes and action, being violent, rude and chilling (bullying) so watch it if you have a strong stomach or interest in this sort of thing only. Brill, there are definately some dogs in this pound.

A very well acted film, but hard & relentlessly tough viewing. If I was a young American & thought of breaking the law, I should be forced to watch this film, then decide ;if this is what I want happening to me.Perfectly cast in my opinion, but you have to be in the right frame of mind to watch it.

This film was really good and during scenes I was empowered with adrenaline.
I found the ending to be a disappointment though.
