The prison scenes were mostly shot at Cork Prison which had been closed down just weeks before shooting began. See more »
Early in the film, Gordon goes shopping with his family to the 'Raul Street' shopping center. An advertisement for a local restaurant shows prices for various dishes in Euros, which of course did not exist until 17 years later. See more »
Some may regard this movie as too slow-paced, but I thought it had enough suspense and tension to keep me engaged throughout.
The acting from the 3 leads Tom Vaughan-Lawlor, Barry Ward, and Martin McCann was quite solid, and the film was ably written and directed by Stephen Burke.
In some ways, the movie reminded me of the 1963 classic "The Great Escape".
