"Omagh" is an example of how cinematic drama must be made today in order to be effective and relevant: with honesty and heart. Brilliant.

Serves as a companion piece to writer-producer Paul Greengrass' superb 2001 pic Bloody Sunday, but emerges as a startlingly powerful achievement in its own right.

... unnervingly evokes both the panic and the confusion of a world suddenly ripped inside out.

... a good picture that's at its best when dramatizing the very violence it condemns.

Paul Greengrass, who previous wrote and directed Bloody Sunday, co-wrote this, and once again he shines a light on the victims of the region's seemingly endless strife.
| Original Score: 3.5/4

As propaganda on behalf of the Omagh victims the film does its work well, but in the end both the personal story and the collective one seem unsatisfactory.

Omagh might have been conceived for television, it nevertheless offers a provocative and well-produced night out at the cinema.
