Storyline

A group of bored Roman Catholic teens from Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom, steal cars and joyride around the city, causing havoc among the nearby Protestants and local Irish Republican Army members, all of who are outraged by the youths' nihilism. The gang, led by ace thief Sean (Marc O'Shea), is connected with the IRA but couldn't care less about the group's politics. But things turn serious when an IRA member captures one of the boys, Marley (Michael Liebmann), in an effort to end the mayhem. Written by Owen

Car theft movie set in Northern Ireland
13 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This seems to be a film that has largely disappeared since it was shown on the BBC in the early 1990s. I haven't seen it since but it contained enough violence and car chase / crash action to stay in the mind of an 18 year old. From what I remember a group of kids living in Northern Ireland, probably Belfast, get their kicks from stealing and joy-riding around in cars. Naturally the British Army, perhaps the Irish Army too, take exception to this. Especially when the kids try to ram through their roadblocks. There seemed to be a lot of violence i.e. people having kneecaps shot out, so it's not one to recommend for all the family but I do remember some pretty incredible stunt-work and car chases involving what were, at the time, probably fairly new cars. This seemed unusual for what appeared to be a budget British / Irish film - I always assumed it was a BBC produced / subsidised movie. I'd certainly be interested to watch it again and see how well it compares to more modern films.
