Storyline

Set sometime in the near future in an Ireland free of British rule, two ruling gangs come together over the abduction and death of several small boys. The most recent occurrence, the drowning of Luke Bradley's son, seems to point to a man known as The Preacher. Once his guilt is decided, the gangs offer Bradley the chance to take his revenge, and kill The Preacher. Written by Ailis

The movie seems to explore the whole idea of perception and how people use that to make their decisions
1 October 2003 | by (U.S.) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed the movie. I thought the movie was very tragic and quite true-. I like how in the midst of the horror that the 'boiler men' created there was comedy. One of my favorite scenes was when the uptight man was in the elevator with all those 'tough guys' Very funny. I liked it---it was different.

Anyway--that's my humble opinion--- Jen
