Doesn't cut too deep.

For anyone interested in the ongoing situation in Northern Ireland this drama is worth seeing. A supergrass is someone who has given information to the authorities necessitating a new identity. Here the informer is from the Loyalist UVF rather than the IRA but his pursuers are just as ruthless.

`The Grasscutter' contains plenty of authentic detail and the spectacular New Zealand landscape, beautifully photographed is worth the price of the ticket but the film soon becomes rather conventional with car chases, fake-looking blood and too much violence for me in a somewhat contrived climax.
