Powerful
13 January 2004 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

I didn't think that James Nesbitt would be able to pull something like this off but he managed to play a rather diverse role, different from anything he has done before rather well. The one thing about "Wall of Silence" which made it a little more disturbing was the fact it is a true story (albiet with some names and incidents changed for legal reasons). It was also a very frustrating story and even the conclusion wasn't totally satisfying as all of the thugs who murdered Jamie were not brought to justice.

It's not particularly something I would watch again, but I urge anyone who had not seen it to try and catch the repeat on ITV2 as it is a very bleak look at the very true see no evil, hear no evil culture that is very alive and well in modern Britain.
