A Decent drama
2 December 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

A good drama but A little confused and Hurried.

I was hoping for the story to actually go somewhere but i was disappointed.

Its good but too short and deserves a full series and story development.

But definite Kudos for Gabriel Byrnes dramatic performance. He really carried it along.

I enjoyed it but wanted more, it leaves you wanting the story to properly finish, and for "Byrnes" character to fulfill his heroic destiny.
