Best Action Movie
27 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Best Action Movie...why? Certainly not over priced special effects and huge explosions. This movie was deep...pay attention. The plot is intricately woven and suspenseful. Jackie plays an Oscar worthy role as a deeply mournful parent looking for answers and won't take no for an answer. Pierce was sensational and very believable. One of the best all around casting jobs I've seen in a while. If you know nothing about the Brits and the IRA conflicts, spend 5 minutes on Wikipedia before going to see the movie. This is a must see!!
