Storyline

Headrush is a crime comedy about two disillusioned youths, struggling through a haze of cannabis, who hope to solve all their problems by smuggling a consignement of drugs for a local gangster. It's set in the present day in Dublin, Ireland against the backdrop of the end of the Celtic Tiger: the bursting of the bubble of this economy boom that's supposed to have done wonders for us all.

Finally an intelligent Irish Movie that knows how to splice genres.
1 October 2004 | by (Sydney) – See all my reviews

Being a Fun Lovin Criminals fan I'd heard about this movie but wasn't sure how I was gonna get to see it.. Finally it arrived here as part of this Irish Film Festival and I cant understand why it's not playin in every cinema around town. To tell you what happens would ruin all the surprising twists and turns, but what I can tell you is you never know whats gonna happen next. And this is why it works so well. It mixes the 'thriller' aspect of a smuggling scam with hilarious 'comedy' elements with a touch of 'love story' and good old fashioned 'gangster drama' to create a melting pot of pure entertainment. Even Huey Morgan (FLC) turns in an amazing performance as do all the cast.. and as for Steven Berkoff.. just don't send him a thong for Christmas!
