Before watching this movie I came here and read the one and only glowing review and looked at the voting and saw that out of 43 votes 46% had voted 10. Unfortunately, based on past experience, a high rating with that few votes and one glowing review are normally huge red flags for me on IMDb. Vote rigging has become a big problem on here and I very nearly dismissed this movie based on these red flags.
Happily I ignored the red flags and sat down to watch what I thought might be a waste of time and got a very nice surprise.
Just about everything about this movie was as close to perfect as you can get, some of the cinematography was simply awesome, it made me want to be there. There are always going to be flaws and holes in the plot, but this simple story only had a few minor ones that didn't detract from the movie at all.
Tony Curran, I have seen many times before and I always expect good acting from him. Martin McCann, Jack Lowden, Ian Pirie and Kate Bracken did a really good job and their acting was of a very high standard along with the rest of the cast. All did a great job.
This movie tells a very real story with realism you only see in top end productions. It had me glued to the screen almost from start to finish, not many movies do that for me.
Highly recommended, but not for the squeamish. Even though there isn't really any over the top on screen violence in the movie, I still felt it was pretty gruesome. I really felt for the two main protagonists in places, but felt the ending was right.
Easily a 9/10 for me, 100 minutes well spent.
