Black comedy and thrller combined,excellent "old school" type film w suspense
22 July 2018 | by dale-51649See all my reviews

The story starts slowly, but like the ride up that first big hill on a roller coster , it reaches and inflection point then changes for the more thrilling, and takes us on a wild ride through a gaggle of gangsters, hookers, IRA ers and long lost relatives run amok.

In the beginning we see a fairly boring looking farmer , middle aged guy who lives with his mother , enough said, or is it?.... There are hints that he is less dorky than he appears, but nothing solid. Then, his almost saccharine sweet moms gets brutally murdered, and the story picks up steam as he tries to solve the crime.

There is good acting and some black comedy early on , and the violence and thrills shortly follow. The picture seems great, but like meeting an interested perfect ten in a bar, you suspect something will be wrong and figure the situation will devolve into disappointment, usually membership in a cult in the former and PC predictability in the ladder,. but in the films case at least it never does.

Other the the protagonist farmer guy, its tough to figure out just who the good and bad guys are. Most films today show a villain insult a women or a child early on , and we know he will be punished later in the piece. None of that here, you have no idea who to trust, which is great, and thus no idea what will happen until a good twist at the end. It had been so long since I had seen suspense, I almost forgot what it looked like.

Bravo to the writers, they didn't chicken out. As the story unfolds we are treated to one surprise after another, and there is a nice pre-PC code twist at the end. It is almost perfect , but I don't give 10s.
