Storyline

Fresh out of prison, Git rescues a former best friend (now living with Git's girlfriend) from a beating at the hands of loan sharks. He's now in trouble with the mob boss, Tom French, who sends Git to Cork with another debtor, Bunny Kelly, to find a guy named Frank Grogan, and take him to a man with a friendly face at a shack across a bog. It's a tougher assignment than it seems: Git's a novice, Bunny's prone to rash acts, Frank doesn't want to be found (and once he's found, he has no money), and maybe Tom's planning to murder Frank, which puts Git in a moral dilemma. Then, there's the long-ago disappearance of Sonny Mulligan. What's a decent and stand-up lad to do? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Excellent film with a mix of action, comedy, and even a little passion.
25 July 2004 | by (Louisiana) – See all my reviews

This was one of the best films I have seen in a while. Peter McDonald and Brendan Gleeson's chemistry together reminded me of much better known and consequently higher cost Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta in Pulp Fiction.

The movie showed me that having the well known actors shouldn't make the movie. If they are good actors, the script will make the movie, and effectively promote the careers of the actors.

The script did an excellent job of portraying the relationships between the characters involved.

Again this was one of the best movies I have seen in a while.
