Factual errors: when they go through what happened to the nail bomb victim. There was only a small device with nails around it. But originally when they walk into the room the floor is covered with nails.See more »
Quotes:
Chief Constable:Three more bodies. It's an epidemic. If it wasn't for the remoteness of this god-forsaken place, we'd have the Press here, all over us.
Detective:I know. I know. There's something I'm missing. But I will find them.
Chief Constable:You miss the point, James. You speak as if we're operating in a vacuum. The fact that only some sort of miracle is preventing a general panic, has obviously eluded you.
Detective:That is not happening because this time everybody knows that those being killed have blood on their hands.
Chief Constable:Are they less entitled to our protection then?

Complete trash, 2 March 2014
Author: bastard-cynical

The situation was, and still remains, far more complex than is portrayed in a film that predictably portrays one side as being a victor of what constituted a bloody, internecine civil war.

Unfortunately the dewy eyed, Boston Irish sentiment for supposed Irish ancestry and the glamour of the IRA has prevailed over the historical bigotry that lies behind a conflict that can never be won as long as there remains division in Christianity (catholicism and protestantism alike). And, indeed, Rome's refusal to intercede and the alignement of terrorist factions across the world are very much interlinked (Basque separatism, pro-Gaddafi Lybian factions, illicit arms sales, etc) has left us all with a legacy insofar as dealing with urban terrorism.

This film totally fails to take account of the many factors that remain today, and is smug and inaccurate. Yes, I am Irish (Dublin) and brought up as a Catholic.
