Not another IRA movie...please!
22 August 1999 | by (Bedfordshire, England) – See all my reviews

This is just another in a long line of truly bad films about Northern Ireland and the IRA. when will the Americans forget about making this type of movie because it is clear they have no idea what the situation is all about. This film is about two brothers who are IRA members , one who is fitted up for a bombing and the other ( Liam ) who is the loonie who has formed his own section of the IRA and who plans to destroy the talks with the goverment about ending the war. This is where things get a bit ridiculous , for some reason the guy who is sent in to Northern Ireland to sort out the younger brother is a 60 year old CIA agent!!! Why??? Apart from the bad acting and the lousy script thr most annoying aspect of this film is the really bad accents.Do you remember Dick Van Dyke's terrible English accent in mary poppins? well check out the guy who plays Liam in this film , he cant remember if he is American or Irish and he keeps switching. The only good thing i can say about the film is that it does show what evil the the IRA really are. Do yourself a favour and steer well clear of this film. 5 out of 10
