i liked it....
27 October 2004 | by sez_mafiaSee all my reviews

i watched the movie several years ago, but liked it, yes it probably wasn't the best movie 'bout northern ireland, and some of the accents of the non-uk actors weren't what you'd like.... but as far as the story goes, it was all right... i thought that xuereb who played liam was believable as a loonie though perhaps not as an irish man, and what i liked was the poem that was in the beginning and the end of the movie, it ties the story together. whether you would like it.... well thats really up to you, if you like brolin (the older one), then no surprises there, he is faithful to his acting in other stuff.
