Storyline

Incorrigible boor Jack Taylor is fired from the Garda (Irish national police) for brutality against a government minister. His experience, some contacts and cheap rates get him started as private eye in all but name, assisted by his even less law-abiding buddy, painter Sutton. Anne Henderson hires him, suggesting her missing teenage daughter was the latest in a series of suspicious 'suicides', which he traces to sleazy manager Ford's factory and illegal sex recordings. That turns out only the tip of the iceberg, even before Jack is beaten badly and old publican Sean is fatally run over. Written by KGF Vissers

It felt like there was missing scenes
4 April 2017 | by carlie_1987See all my reviews

The big problem with this was that it seemed like big chunks of story were left out. It seemed rushed. A lot of scenes seemed sudden and unbelievable. The acting and visuals were all good. If there wasn't gaping holes in the plot and the pacing maybe it would have been a half decent film. It just felt like someone cut an hour of footage that would have made the movie make sense; the romance believable and the antagonist believable. There wasn't enough time spent on the characters to actually care about them.
