Poor plot line development & amateurish acting
19 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

The film begins slowly, but builds towards an interesting plot line.

Unfortunately the story become cyclical and predictable, eventually losing its pacing towards the final act.

It's also bothersome for us "Nordies" as the graphics department have taken it into their own hands to reclaim Northern Ireland! (Island of Ireland is represented on a map, throughout the movie, using only the Flag of Ireland, no Union Flag for us Northerners).

Also for ten lines: "The Hardy Bucks Movie isn't revolutionary. It's not a work of comedy genius for the ages. Quite a lot of it feels overly familiar, an Irish spin on the "young men go wild abroad" sub-genre that has proved popular in the past number of years. And yet, despite that, there's a quaint charm to The Hardy Bucks Movie that makes it reasonably entertaining. The lads from Castletown has survived the transition to the big screen with their dignity – such that it is – intact."
