2.5 out of 10 Not bad
Roy from Wicklow, 27 May 2007
This was an enjoyable film, despite terrible performances from Alan Rickman and Julia Roberts (why not use an Irish actress, americans rarely do a good Irish accent) Slight poetic licence on Jordans part here too with regard the history. Neeson is good of course, but I feel his portrayal of Collins was nothing like the man himself. Overall: Could be alot better and a lot less cliched

Neeson was excellent but I agree they should have used Irish actors.

What's it about....
Michael Collins, the man and the movie, stands tall. The man is a hero whose fighting tactics become a model for other 20th Century struggles, a statesman who negotiated Ireland’s break with England, a political martyr slain for the great cause he lived and breathed. Michael Collins roils with the passions of war furiously waged and peace desperately sought.
