As the story races on, the meaning of the film's title becomes harrowingly accurate. 4½ stars

The Age - Jim Schembri

Centered on an ordinary young woman-turned-rescuer of victims, pic's integrity and committed performances should spark strong fest interest and generate discussion of a supremely ugly subject.
Variety, Richard Kuipers review

Culturewars article on the impact of The Jammed

The Jammed is a hard-hitting action drama with a compassionate heart. Review by Bernard Hemingway

A fine, compelling drama which has something profoundly relevant to say about contemporary Australian society.  Urban Cinephile Review

Still one of last year's most accomplished Australian productions, it is a confronting film deemed too hard to sell but which audiences clearly want to see.  Sydney Morning Herald DVD review. Full review by Jacqui Taffe. 

Flicks review 4 stars; people’s review five stars. New Zealand

JJJ review by Mark Fennel


Just when it was beginning to look like a ho-hum year for Australian film, along comes The Jammed, a low-budget, locally made shock of electricity that further restores one's faith in just how good Australian social-realist films can be.
