fantastic Irish western
30 August 2018 | by eugenequinnSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film which tells the story of An Irish Ranger who returns home after fighting for the empire abroad to find that his homeland is destroyed and family killed by the very forces he was defending. he sets out on a revenge journey which is set to the back drop of the famine in the west of Ireland. I like the fact that lance does not bow to a Hollywood production and instead depicts a very real narrative. It is dark and the performances are brilliant. The photography is class and you feel you are moving within the scenes along with the characters..hope to see the movie translate to overseas audiences. THumbs up.
