Utter Garbage
6 July 2001 | by (Belfast, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

Resurrection Man, by Eoin McNamee, is a masterpiece in visceral storytelling and in evoking the back streets of Belfast.

This ''adaptation'' loses almost all of these qualities and leaves us feeling disgusted we wasted our time watching this tripe.

Director Marc Evens thinks that he's Scorsesse and that he can make the Northern Ireland troubles cool by using the same techniques(slow-motion,freeze,70's music) and it just shows what it really is.

A pale imitation of a masterpiece (Goodfellas) and a terrible adaptation
