Mickey Rourke is a first class actor who along makes this film work.
A rather sad tale based around the IRA.

Simply great. Intrigue, suspense and with Bob Hoskins as ex SAS and now a vicar. Sammy Davis is great and Mickey Rourke and Liam Neeson hit it off and show their talents. Should have been bigger at the box office. Well worth a watch and you will add it to your collection. If on DVD buy it!!!

.. and hopelessly miscast. Bob Hoskins as an ex SAS catholic priest (erm dont think so on either level), Alan Bates as an East End gangster !! who is dressed like an extra from another film set in the 60's and Rourke as a dissolusioned IRA man all seemingly filmed on the set of Only Fools and Horses.

This is not good

A WELL UNDERRATED FILM - Mr ROOKE'S ACTING IN THIS FILM IS HIS FINEST - THOUGH HIS NORTHERN IRISH ACCENT FAILS SOMETIMES BUT IT IS STILL A GOOD FILM.

Considering this movie is from 1987 it stands its time extremely well.Martin Fallon(Mickey Rourke) is on a mission with his best pal played by Liam Neeson and a compatriot who plants a bomb in a country lane in N.Ireland ready to take out a passing Army Patrol but the patrol consisting of 2 jeeps are overtaken by a schoolbus which reaches the the I.E.D. first completely destroying it and killing its full compliment of schoolchildren.Fallon is in total shock at the scene and stands there unable to move while Neeson makes his escape,
Fallon makes his way off eventually next turning-up in England where he is contacted by an Irish intermediary of an English top-criminal Alan Bates who requires Rourke to make a "hit" on another gang-boss so he can take over his area.In return Rourke is promised money, a passport and ID.Initially Rourke refuses the "offer" but later accepts.This leads to him carrying out the hit which is witnessed by a priest,Bob Hoskins in an unusual role but one which he plays very convincingly.
Neeson is sent to the UK to bring Rourke back to N.Ireland to answer to the IRA Council why he made off to the UK Mainland without their permission after the failed attack on the British Army Patrol with orders to kill him if he refuses.Rourke refuses but can Neeson kill his best friend?
This is one of the questions it is worth buying the DVD to find out? Stars Christopher Fulford, Anthony Head(Buffy) and Sammi Davis as Anna, Bob Hoskins blind niece,in support roles.
A really excellent little movie with a fine cast.
