I must admit I was skeptical about this one at first but I thought I&#39;d at least give a local film a chance. Let me say this; I was pretty surprised.<br/><br/>Going in expecting some sort of troubles rehash the first few scenes immediately set the film in a more gritty reality. With a nice balance between familiar scenery and bloody murders the film flows better than I&#39;d have thought and haunting music gave the whole piece additional atmosphere.<br/><br/>Colm Meaney certainly pulled his weight as an aging detective alongside a cast which seemed to be entirely Irish (which was nice, none of those awful fake accents American films are always using). The only non-local I noticed was Malcolm Sinclair and he was almost as good as Colm so it&#39;s easy to overlook. Over all the acting pleasantly surprised me, proving our performing heritage once more.<br/><br/>The concept is definitely daring and certain areas might struggle a little now and then from the sheer weight but having seen it for myself I&#39;m surprised by the bad press it&#39;s gotten, especially for a local film. I know I myself will recommend it, a good film that is also locally made and acted deserves all the support it gets

Well, that&#39;s 2 hours of my life I&#39;ll never get back.<br/><br/>I had high hopes for this, despite the furore around the press pack I was keen to see this movie and see how they would handle a (sort of) non troubles related movie. Well, the answer is they couldn&#39;t have got it more wrong. The acting was poor for the most part, Colm tries but you can&#39;t carry a movie with just one guy; the dialogue made me cringe more than once, cheesy and unrealistic (I live in Belfast but even allowing for a wider audience -come on!) and the characterisation and motivations were barely plausible at best. I still don&#39;t know what message they were leaving the audience with and I think that&#39;s what bothers me most<br/><br/>If I could, I would have rated this 0 out of 10 but apparently that&#39;s not allowed.

I think the press in the UK and Northern Ireland gave this movie a hard time due to their issue with the press pack that was sent out (which was misinterpreted by the all too touchy reviewers).<br/><br/>On watching it I thought it was a great concept, great story line and the visuals were top notch. Maybe the odd accent was a little off, but I&#39;ve seen bigger productions with the same. The initial animation on the history of northern Ireland was fantastic! There was a couple of jumps during the movie that I quite liked.<br/><br/>And the questions raised really are relevant to the current Irish political climate, post the Good Friday Agreement.<br/><br/>Overall it was worth the watch and is leaves you thinking about Justice, Peace, Revenge, Forgiveness and what they really mean.
