Dull and unrealistic IRA drama
5 January 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

With its limited production values,flat direction and uninspired acting this looks more like an extended piece of TV docu drama.Tom Bell is told at the beginning that he has lost his remission by another prisoner and actually believes him.he is thus goaded into one of the simplest prison breaks ever put on screen.Almost one jump and he's free.He is taken to the Republic of Ireland where he meets the IRA gang that sprung him.There in the pub we meet up with the landlord ,the marvelous Noel Purcell,who is the only reason to continue to watch this film.Bell is cajoled into bombing a local factory in a symbolic move.However he is angry when he finds out that he was lied to about his remission and that if he had waited he would have been released in two months.He has had enough of violence,particularly when he finds out that the gang have committed a robbery.He helps the police to round up the gang.Best watched with the fast forward on.
