Terrible, God Awful

"The only reason we bothered renting this movie is becuase our friend has been making fun of it in the past two weeks (by the way, he found in the Blockbuster dumpster). It exceeded our expectations and is probably the most unintentionally hilarious movie we have ever seen. How can you not laugh every time James Brolin enters the screen? Plus, why did Josh Brolin get a billing when he was only in the movie for 2 1/2 minutes?"
Great political thriller!

"This is a top notch political thriller and personal story about feuding brothers in the IRA. Great Irish actors, locales, and gritty flavor make this one a winner! Excellent script and performances by the two brothers, as well."
Intelligent well made movie

"I enjoyed this movie altho I found one of the principal actors a bit to affected to be believable.JAMES BROLIN does a fine job as a first time director as well as taking the lead role .PATRICK FOY does well as the reluctant hero and GARY COOK as the IRA head is well cast.The only problem I had was that it was a bit cliched but then it is getting more and more difficult to come up with and original idea no matter what the story.Watch out for the BILL MURPHY cameo.He plays paddy kelly an IRA activist with the fire of freedom burning in his belly.Stunning scene."
