Super film..........
8 September 1999 | by (Near Leeds, Yorkshire, UK) – See all my reviews

This is a very good film, l first saw it about 6 years ago, the video cover is not very good, and the title is a bit vauge, but it concerns a guy who turns supergrass in Ireland and gets a new life in New Zeland.

But the hit men come after him...

I have just been very lucky and found a Video of this film last week......as a very tight drama with plenty of action it`s top notch.
