Perriers Bounty is an amazing Irish Gangster film with elements of (very funny) dark comedy. Its very well written and sums up certain elements of gangster life and futility very well

Michael owes money to Perrier, a local thug. When two enforcers demand payment by nightfall, Michael does a burglary with two others but won't be paid till morning.

All he has to do is stay away from the thugs until he can get the money then give it to Perrier. But the lads catch Michael and start to deliver a beating, but Brenda, Michael's suicidal neighbour, shoots one.

Now they must run for their lives, accompanied by Jim, Michael's estranged father who claims to be dying and has come to reconcile with his son.....

A good premise, a great cast, and a short running, do sometimes make for a rollicking good movie. Here we get an average Gangster film we have seen a dozen times before, albeit with an awesome cast.

The makers seem to think it will be funny for the audience if some of the characters have tics, one not being able to sleep, one wanting to commit suicide, and obviously, the token 'funny' banter between the criminals.

It's getting old now, and the fact that actors like Gleeson, Murphy, and Whittaker signed up for this baffled me.

There are a couple of good scenes toward the end, but it didn't make up for the Deja Vu I experienced for the first hour.

Disappointing.

Much like the director's previous film "Intermission", this is a funny if somewhat predictable black comedy with a brilliant cast! I think this is very much worth a watch!

Amazing film, unfortunately not widely known about. Absolutely love it, bought for my fiancé and has since become a favourite of us both!

Found this film by accident, and what a pearl it is. Imagine a comedy version of Millers Crossing. Violent and very funny. 10 out of 10.

Brutal, funny and thoroughly watchable. Great acting from all. A well spent Sunday afternoon occurred thanks to this film.

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.
