I watched Dog Pound last night and firstly let me start by saying that if you have watched the classic British movie Scum, then that is what Dog Pound basically is, but an Australian version of it.

The similarities are striking, for example the youth offenders who join the borstal get picked on by a group of lads, the group of lads then get beat up by the hardest from that new group.

The boy pressing the buzzer at night and eventually getting ignored only to find he is dead in the morning, and the riot that takes place in the canteen after this. Also you have the scene where one of the boys is raped by another lad (this is the same lad who was pressing the buzzer later on).

I do believe I would have enjoyed Dog Pound more if I had not seen Scum, but seriously why do film companies get away with this sort of stuff, it's just a blatant copy from another movie with only changed people and a changed location.

So even though I did watch from start to finish, my suggestion is if you have watched the UK movie Scum, avoid this, and if you have not watched Scum, I suggest you 100% watch that first before you watch this one, as that one is a brilliant movie.

One last thing about this movie is that I don’t think it was all that violent, some of the scenes in it were pretty lame, it did not really give the feeling that the borstal was a tough place to be doing time (not like Scum), I think they got this all pretty wrong, could not even do that right.

By the way ignore all the positive reviews you may read for this DVD on places such as Amazon, these I can only presume are from youngsters who have never experienced the movie Scum, so all think this is brilliant. Do yourself a massive favour and find the movie Scum which was directed by Alan Clarke.
