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.
Boring beyond belief.
A thriller that means well but falls some way short of thrilling.
"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?
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.
Debut director Nathan Todd's intermittently convincing reflection on the Troubles.
