5.0 out of 5 stars That's just my way, man
Black comedy gangster movies were the hot trend in British cinema in the 2000s. London's Lock Stock, Snatch and Layer Cake etc were met by Ireland's Intermission and this, Perrier's Bounty. Whilst the grit of the English films is to be admired, there is a certain something about the Irish that allows the dark humour of the film to come across as more genuine and Perrier's...

3.0 out of 5 stars Bountiful
Cillian Murphy (28 Days Later & Sunshine) plays a hapless Michael McCray who borrows money from the local gangster, Perrier (Brendan Gleeson - Green Zone). When he struggles to make the repayments, Perrier sends his enforcers round to collect, involving Michael's neighbour and long-time crush Brenda (Jodie Whittaker). When Michael's dad shows up (Jim Broadbent - Hot Fuzz)...

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, 7 Oct 2010

This review is from: Perrier's Bounty [DVD] (DVD)
The makers of this Dublin crime caper should think about sending enormous thank you bouquets to a trinity of actors for sparing their blushes: Cillian Murphy, Jim Broadbent and Brendan Gleeson. All three of them are fine performers, who assemble a likable if flavourless comedy out of scraps of this and knocked-off bits of that. Murphy plays a bedsit loser who owes money (the pleasingly paltry sum of 1,000) to Gleeson's camel-coated loan shark, Darren Perrier. Broadbent is his watery-eyed dad, who shows up to announce he's dying. The knight's move plot jumps from gay henchmen to fighting dogs, the grim reaper (Gabriel Byrne, wouldn't you know), a hysterical lady farmer and a dizzy suicidal flatmate. You may have spotted the whiff of casual misogyny in the last two, which we stomach because it's appropriate to the milieu. But no, it doesn't make it big or clever.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as Good as I hoped., 13 Feb 2012

Dubi Humour...Great...

This let me down a bit. I was expecting great things, I mean yer man's in it.!

I sat down with me new Blue Ray player my HD Television and what's more me pint of cold Guiness.

Sorry General, you let me down in this.

Funny enough. But a two star rating......actually that' being kind...

I even enjoyed the film about Bruuge better than this..... and that's saying some thing.

I hope the Guard is better,,,,Watch this space....C'Mon Big Fella

(Mr Gleason I hope that your not going down the route of Mr Farrell with some duzies by him as far as film enjoyment )

2.0 out of 5 stars Violent and not funny, 10 Jan 2011
This review is from: Perrier's Bounty [Blu-ray] [Region A] (Blu-ray)
I was expecting to watch a funny film with great cast. What I watched didn't make me laugh, I have no problem with violence in films in the correct context but the violence shown was very graphic and the way in which it was shown was misplaced for a comedy. Not worth bothering with its a confused, dull and violent mess - avoid.
