Superb direction by Chris Baugh and a great script veined with dark humour by Baugh and Brendan Mullin. This is a rural Cardboard Gansters! 9/10.
22 May 2018 | by PairicSee all my reviews

Bad Day For The Cut: An Irish Film about revenge, quelle surprise! Starting off in Tyrone and moving around the Six counties this is a tale of vengeance rooted in "The Troubles" but most of the narrative relates to present day events. Donal (Nigel O'Neill) lives on an Isolated Tyrone farm with his mother, he is middle-aged and lonely, repairs vehicles on the side. One night strangers come and murder his murder. A follow up attempt is made to kill Donal and make it look like suicide but Tyrone farmers are a hardy lot and one of the assailants ends up dead and the other is Donal's prisoner.

There follows a story of human-trafficking, sexual slavery and gangsterism in contemporary Northern Ireland. A quest which runs from the border through Belfast to the North Antrim coast as Donal seeks answers, about the death of his mother, his mother's past and the true story about what happened decades before. A violence you would think unlikely in an ordinary man is roused in Donal as he becomes a champion not just for himself but others who are oppressed. His violence pales though in comparison to that casually used by the traffickers to keep their slaves and underlings in line.

Superb direction by Chris Baugh and a great script veined with dark humour by Baugh and Brendan Mullin. This is a rural Cardboard Gangsters! 9/10. On Netflix

Brendan Mullin was at a Q&A after the screening and his next film will be about the accidental unearthing (during a motorway construction) of the vampire that Bram Stoker based Dracula on! It's working title is The Boys From The County Hell.
