Frank refers to County Down as being in "Northern Ireland". An Irish republican would not use that term, as it would give recognition to British rule in Ireland. See more »

flat-lining, sparse action flop with no scene changes
28 April 2017 | by ashleybmeyerSee all my reviews

Nine people with terrible aim shoot at concrete without expressing emotion for 90 minutes. You might call this an arthaus gore shootout but with too much john Denver. Mind-numbingly boring cinematography and editing, and as far as I can tell the only lens they used was mid-century misogyny. Great cast, but bad enough to be a cult classic in 10 years maybe?
