Michael Lynch is Dublin's most notorious criminal, his brazen robberies making him the bane of the Gardaí and a hero to his fellow working class city Northsiders. When not playing happy families with his two wives - sisters Christine and Lisa - and his children, Lynch is busy plotting elaborate heists, thinking as much about the showmanship of it all as he is the loot involved. On his case is Garda Noel Quigley, his determination to convict Lynch slowly turning into an obsession. Inevitably, a showdown looms. Written by
Originally this film was intended to be a film about Martin Cahill (aka The General) a Dublin crime lord. However when the makers discovered that John Boorman was making a film about him already, they changed the storyline. The original intent of the film can still be seen in certain sequences.

hmm.. when I first heard about this movie, I wasn't sure I wanted to watch it. Since I am a big Kevin Spacey fan, I didn't want to watch anything that would be a drawback. I was quite surprised to find the movie very nice. I enjoyed watching the mocking side of Kevin, making jokes and all. I thought that the movie had a lack of action but it was very good. Kevin was brilliant, as usual!!
