Really gets it's point across... very effective
29 May 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I thought this was a really interesting movie that shows just how violent Belfast can get. By the end, nearly every character lies dead and a church bell tolls in the distance. Massively violent. Not for kids. But it accomplishes what it needs to. A 'quiet day' indeed. The title is sarcastic, of course. 8/10
