ah the never ending idea of getting in established actors to play irish people and adapt an accent that makes me ill never ceases to dull my senses but if the film is decent enough then i can learn to move on,with ordinary decent criminals that notion doesnt apply as the film is a howler from start to finish.
The film had to be altered at the last minute,the original film was centred around real life crime lord martin cahill,but then the film makers heard that a film about him was already being made,(the general) so the script was altered even if a few similarities remain.
The film is devoid of soul and the pace is lazy,i believe there are funny parts in here,they didnt find me,spacey looks uncomfortable here and it is one film that i can almost bet he didnt appear in as his cv is of the highest calibre,not worth your time.
