Quirky, irreverant, totally politically incorrect and VERY funny! This charmingly offbeat Irish thriller/comedy had me hooked from the start. Excellent acting all round, particularly Brendan Gleeson who is perfect as the subversive, yet startingly flamboyantly romantic police sargeant in a small Irish town - he is hilarious! Don Cheadle is also delightful as the FBI agent sent to Ireland to help break a drug ring. Other supporting characters are equally hilarious and bizarre. Highly recommended.
This film is an absolute cracker. Owes a lot to Tarantino but easily surpasses Pulp Fiction. Make sure you turn on the subtitles or else you'll miss some of the jokes.
Every culture in every country other than America has a pet project film industry; this movie appears to be a product of Ireland's film board. Australia has its quirky local vernacular movies (Crackerjack, Proof Death in Brunswick) and this is up there with Raising Ned Divine. As always there are always few ring-in actors from the US as there was here Mark Strong (Kick Ass playing a similar character) and Don Cheadle. I didn't mind this film but it needed something more to get it over the line as a stand up for itself movie.
Excellent. One of the funniest films ever.
Enjoyed this movie and liked the subtle humour. 7/10. Worth watching.
Great movie with excellent acting. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend to anyone looking for a great drama - small town cop meets FBI agent etc and a light sense of humour thrown in.
Good film, well plotted and some good laughs. Nice 'did he, didn't he?' ending.
PS Lance, if you give it a 7/10 shouldnt you give it at least 3 stars, not 2?
Better than expected with some very funny parts. I loved the police interrogation room scene.
Quirky, understated and intriguing. Its good to see a movie which is not predictable. Great characters and fabulous Irish humour.
I enjoyed this very much. Part of the reason is probably because its definitely not your Hollywood action blockbuster. Storyline was fairly basic, but some great characters and acting.
not as funny as i had thought it would be,but i still enjoyed it and was worth watching..i give it a 7 outta 10
