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.

Great story line and the visuals were top notch
23 September 2013 | by jtodonovanmcrdSee all my reviews

I think the press in the UK and Northern Ireland gave this movie a hard time due to their issue with the press pack that was sent out (which was misinterpreted by the all too touchy reviewers).

On watching it I thought it was a great concept, great story line and the visuals were top notch. Maybe the odd accent was a little off, but I've seen bigger productions with the same. The initial animation on the history of northern Ireland was fantastic! There was a couple of jumps during the movie that I quite liked.

And the questions raised really are relevant to the current Irish political climate, post the Good Friday Agreement.

Overall it was worth the watch and is leaves you thinking about Justice, Peace, Revenge, Forgiveness and what they really mean.
