4.0 out of 5 stars Well made film with real genuine quality, 10 Feb. 2008
This review is from: The Mighty Celt [2005] [DVD] (DVD)
Set in modern day Northern Ireland (2005) and revolves around a young
lad (Tyrone McKenna) who works under the watchful eye of Greyhound dog
owner (Ken Stott) in kennels and at racing tracks.

A reasonably straight forward real life drama with no-nonsense
attitude. It might possibly narrow it's audience due to the strong
Irish accent, but this is one of the many important ingredients that
make, what could be a very average film - really good.

Some inspired British style camera work together with a Dub-Celt
soundtrack really give this film it's feel. And it all seems plausible,
but not predictable. What does work particularly well is how each
character and sub plot seem carefully balanced with their own
importance in the storyline, nothing is wasted or filling time.

Natural performances from all the small cast and a surprisingly good
combo of Carlyle & Anderson adds a close personal feel and keeps this
story easy to contain.

If you don't mind a bit of swearing and kids smoking then this film is
great for all ages and generations.
