This NOT a review.
I have just sent back the copy of Veronica and forgot to put a note with it to say : THE DVD COPY IS FAULTY - in some places.
I was able to watch most of it so I do NOT need to have it sent to me again.
Based on the true story of a courageous and intrepid Irish journalist, Veronica Guerin. It shows what one individual is able to achieve - but at what cost?
I found it hard to watch.
absolutely fabousley story, very well acted by Cate Blanchett, baced on a true story about the brutel drug trade in Dublin
in the 1990,s
I found this movie to be really moving. the acting was first class.
i highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a great Irish tale
She was one gutsy lady who did make a difference. Very tragic though.
Cate Blanchett's ability to adapt to a range of characters is remarkable. She has done true justice to the bravery of this honest woman. The film is well directed, and quite dark, but well worth viewing.
Another outstanding performance by the great Cate Blanchett. A strong supporting cast and a compelling true story make for a terrific movie, I am surprized it didn't do better at the box office and the Oscars.
Educational and awesome. A riveting movie for adults.
Found it an engrossing and moving story.
Kate Blanchett is brilliant in this movie, a disturbing true story about a courageous journalist to brave for her own good. Good to see her death was not wasted as justice prevailed in the end but such a cost. Extra's were a highlight seeing the real person. Highly recommended
It draws you in right from the start and leaves you there
(no boring bits, no slow pace). I was completely engaged in the movie all the way through. Not a feel good movie but an important yet disturbing depiction of organised crime and parts of Ireland in the mid 1990s.
Blachett is a great actress. She picks good story lines. Like all Irish based plots, sad and dreary but as far as I can tell, that was life in Ireland...
Very well portrayed story of what happens in the shadowy world of drug dealing and crime. Shocking but real.
Really good movie and sad! great actors. not to be missed.
Cate Blanchett was fantastic as usual! She's almost unrecognisable from one film role to another and this movie is no exception. I found this a very moving story and it opened my eyes to the dangers journalists can face to get us the full story.
the end was a disappointment, but overall it was ok. I expected a bit more I suppose, but other than Gerard McSorley the performances were kind of pedestrian
Well acted and directed story of a brave lady. Another instance of Cate Blanchett's versatility.
Bordering on a documentary, the treatment of this subject, based as it was in fact, was extremely respectful of the person being depicted, even uncritical. Nevertheless, a powerful film.
A very good movie once you get your head around the Irish accents! Particularly powerful given that this is a true story.
Another excellent performance by Cate Blanchett.
The curse of drugs and all there misery, is portrayed brilliantly by Cate, powerful film .
Strong performance by Cate Blanchett can't quite save a very trad treatment of this story.
Fantastic film. Cate Blanchett really involves you in the character. A must-see.
I love IRA/Irish Crime movies.This was interesting as it was based on a true story however just seemed to lack a "knockout punch".I wonder how good it could have been if it had been directed by an Irish director.
I love movies based on real-life characters. Emotional, gripping.
Kept you watching but not enough depth to the story.
Very touching and memorable....Cate Blanchet is fantastic, very believable and has shown to have done an incredible amount of research into her character!
Just couldnt bring myself to care about these characters.
Cate Blanchett is outstanding, as usual, and the story is gritty and emotional.. A great week-night view.
Love Cate always. But disturbing the film and what is done by criminals to try to hush up their crimes
Worth watching but hard to believe the naivity of some of the players in this tragedy.
Reminds us how a life can simply be snuffed out. When it is whatever that person's mission, importance is no more. Excellent acting and suspense.
Cate Blanchett performs superbly in portraying Veronica Guerin.
A gripping story about the realities of Irish Gangsters. Not half as much fun as lock, stock & barrel, but so much more dramatic.
Cate Blanchett is excellent.
Very good movie with Cate Blanchett again showing her exceptional acting skills.
It's good and touching. I cried at the end of the movie. Very touching.
Cate Blanchett as always is excellent in this movie that evokes both anger & sadness - especially as it is a true story.
