0.5 out of 10 Dreadful, derivative film that wastes good actors.
Safie from Westmeath, 05 Sep 2011
The badness of Jim Broadbent's accent is in direct proportion to the pseudo-American nature of the dialogue. The good cast are let down hugely by the brutal script. This film is unoriginal and lacking in any kind of authenticity. A good drinking game for this might be to take a drink any time Jim Broadbent's accent changed, someone said "man", or someone uses dialogue that would never be heard in real life. Irish films can be so much better than this.

4.5 out of 10 Perriers Bounty
Frances from Clare, 02 Nov 2010
This is a gangster comedy with some superb black humour. Fantastic cast, Cillian Murphy is brilliant as the Dublin chancer who ends up with a bounty placed on him when he fails to repay a debt. Jim Broadbent as his father is IMO absolutely brilliant. And of course Brendan Gleeson as ever delivers superbly. Loved it

4 out of 10 Excellent
Seamus from Monaghan, 08 Mar 2011
Except for Broadbent's awful Oirish accent this is a terrific film. The acting (apart from the Oirish accent) is top notch. and Jim Broadbent is his usual brilliant self but inflicted with a dreadful accent for no good reason. The story is engaging and there is plenty to hold your attention.

5 out of 10 Mighty Crack!!
gerry from Wexford, 19 Jul 2012
This is a terrific film bearing in mind that it is a tongue in cheek black comedy and not to be taken too seriously as a reflection of Dublin's criminal underworld. Great performances, as you would expect, from Brendan Gleeson and Cillian Murphy. Just enjoy. Highly recommended.

What's it about....
When Michael's (Cillian Murphy) debt to Dublin kingpin Darren Perrier (Brendan Gleeson) is called in and one of Perrier's goons accidentally ends up dead, Michael escapes to the mountains with his father Jim (Jim Broadbent) and best friend, Brenda. Flat broke, on the run and with only 24 hours to pay up, Michael is forced to confront his true feelings for Brenda and make amends with his father. However, with Perrier and his gang in hot pursuit, time is running out for Michael...
