Storyline

Martin Cahill, better known as The General, is a master criminal in Dublin. Known to want to push the limit, he robs a famous jewelery and gets away with over one million in booty. He is the subject of the day, everybody is talking about the military precision of Cahill's crime group. In addition to the police, Cahill pissed of the IRA. They also had plans to plunder the jewelery and now demand compensation. Suddenly everybody seems 'conspiring' against him: the police, the IRA, an underling who wants to strike a deal with the IRA to avoid war and Cahill himself. Reading a newspaper article about an art robbery that was the biggest ever in Ireland, Cahill feels obliged to do better. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Not bad but not great
2 January 2000 | by (Belfast, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

There is a bit more detail in this tv movie about the story of Dublin hood Martin Cahill than the film The General(1998)The BBC made the mistake of putting it in colour instead of black and white and the result is that if you've seen The General(1998) than you'll think this doesn't work.Read the book The General by Paul Williams and watch the film.
