Shadows on the Wall

Keeps us involved even after the plot takes some badly contrived turns. Strong characters and performances make it almost watchable.

One of the sweetest Irish movies to come along since Waking Ned Devine

It's a sweet but slight film whose undeniable appeal is largely due to the performances of its flat-out adorable leads.

In 2004 there is no excuse for a gay-themed film to be a translucent closet with a cute, revolving door.

A feel-good coming-of-age movie that floats on a boatload of Irish charm.

(an) often charming and more often familiar Irish coming-of-age tale.

A likable if ordinary Irish indie that barely squeaks by on the charms of its leads.

Enlivens the classic premise of innocent-in- the-city by moving its archetypal characters in unexpected directions.

Stack Cowboys against most of the fare American studios offer young adults and it's meatier by far.

All over the map, but since it's Irish, it still manages to be a little charming.

There are no truly great lessons imparted in Cowboys and Angels, but its charm, sociability and highly watchable performances make it a smooth, friendly cinematic pint.

Gleeson has written and directed the picture with deep affection and impressively cinematic skill.

The coming-of-age story about the corruptions of the big city has been done a few thousand times, but at least this one offers a fresh mix of open-minded intelligence and a heartfelt point of view.

For all the violence and breaking-up- to-make-up that go on, there's never really a sense of risk or exploration, and the film's pulse never rises above faint.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

In general, a film in which the protagonist exalts his friend on a city sidewalk, raising his arms to the sky and proclaiming, 'You've worked your magic on me, and I'll never be the same again!' should not be seen by anyone.

Mixed Reviews

Without anything unique to add to the dramatic landscape, Gleeson's film is a fleeting glimpse at a world we already know...it is a film in search of a reason to exist.
