Did You Know?


The "Bog Man" is heard speaking occasionally throughout the movie. A lot of what he says is nothing other than grunting, but several phrases are actually modern Irish, specifically, "Uisce" (water) and "Saoirse" (freedom, usage is unrelated to the name of the female lead). See more »


When Saiorse Reilly strips down to shower, the material covering actress Nora-Jane Noone's breasts can be briefly seen in the shot twice. See more »


Val Leary: Hello! Hello!
[Looks at the cellphone]
Val Leary: Ahhh! Jesus!
[Taps the phone violently]
Val Leary: You can get a signal on the top of Mount Everest! 5 minutes outside of Dublin, you're screwed!

Review of a...mmm...how should we call it ?!
16 June 2009 | by ecstasy_neoSee all my reviews

OK, to start with ,don't be baffled by Vinnie being in this movie cause the plot is so thin that u wouldn't even know is there.The acting is bellow par and besides this the actors look like they wanna get the hell outta there and take a break. How should i say it ?......if u survive the first minutes of the film ,which for a movie start are horrible, then u would waste 90 minutes of your life. This movie makes Far Cry look like an Oscar nominee , so no don't watch even if is free. The only guy who made me laugh is the one who plays the so called mummy who looks like acting for him is running , slashing , tearing everything apart and trying to look as dumb as ever. Too bad Vinnie is in the movie , i was expecting a lot more from both.
