Very thrilling, but falls apart in the last 20 minutes
This movie manages to be thrilling throughout as the character tries to survive the Troubles. However, the last 20 minutes or so unnecessarily overcomplicates the plot with contrived twists. Also, a more minor flaw, but the characters could've been developed a bit more.
I appreciate the realism in many of the parts of the movie, such as the inept bomb handler. Handling bombs isn't always easy.
+ Realism to it
Flawed plot in last 20 minutes
Characters could be a little better
I can't give it the best rating, so I'll give it a 7.
