Do Americans really buy into this...?
26 May 2020 | by soupster1See all my reviews

I only watched this film because I was curious about the reviews it had got on IMDB. Nearly everybody seemed to think that this was as good a film as it was possible to be. Better than The Godfather, Citizen Kane,... you do the rest.

I was right to have my doubts. As an Irishman, I am sick to death of our people being constantly portrayed as drunks and criminals on the grounds that we all know how charming alcoholism and criminality are when accompanied by awful 'diddley' music .

This is obviously an amateur production, which shouldn't be a problem, and the film ought to be given a fair chance, but... the wildly wide of the mark reviews turn it into a scam no more imaginative than the storyline.

I found it embarrassingly written and acted, but even then I'd still have given it 2 stars if not for the fake reviews. My review does not contain spoilers because I cannot imagine how this film could be spoiled anymore than it already is.
