An IRA informer heads Down Under in protective custody which has a less than satisfactory safety record!
Decent bit of intrigue here. Initially shown over two nights but also available in abridged video format. Having seen it again recently some twelve years or so after its original screening, it stands up quite well.
As was often the IRA modus operendi, a large bomb is detonated in central London during mid Christmas shopping. The same night, Michael McGurk gives himself up to British Police. In an attempt to protect both the family and the identity of their informant, the Police place McGurk under a witness-protection program, and send him out to Australia for relocation and integration.
The IRA however are understandably toey about this arrangement and hire a top US assassin to clean up their mess for them. Patrick Bergin is in fine form as McGurk and Elliot Gould has no reason to push himself to the limit as Callaghan, the assassin. This guy REALLY enjoys his work!
As I said at the outset, an eminently watchable caper, just a tad long!
