Movie Info

Belfast is a city with hundreds of years of hatred, 30 years of bombs, a war without winners, just victims. There is peace, but that can also be deadly. Now when a series of murders awaken dormant memories, many fear the worst. Times are changing, car bombs are less common and terrorists find themselves out of work, but old habits die hard. And while most go quietly into the night, one man must find the few who won't comply. A greying assassin has stopped walking his son to school. With motives buried deep in the Irish conflict, everyone is about to discover that the past matters to someone...

  • Boring beyond belief.

  • The plot scatters too many pieces about, putting the film's star off screen for long stretches.

  • As a snapshot of modern Belfast, the point is that horrors of the past are still present. But honestly, this isn't exactly awash with moral ambiguity.

  • A thriller that means well but falls some way short of thrilling.

    Oct 21, 2013 | Rating: 2/5
  • "We need something new" says Meaney's world-weary cop to himself in one strange scene, "Not the same old thing. Please God, not the same old pattern!", which made me think, was he talking about the escalating murders or the slumping script?

    Sep 21, 2013 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…
  • With lines like 'Nobody is ever happy until they are grieving again', [Colm] Meaney is at his best simply talking to himself, trying to make sense of a generation of madness.
