Movie Info

Irish Republican Army member Martin Fallon (Mickey Rourke) rigs a bomb to destroy a British army convoy, but the plan goes wrong when the trucks allow a school bus to pass. Now, Fallon wants out. He's through killing for the cause, but in order to secure safe passage to the U.S., he'll have to take one more job: eliminating rival terrorist Krasko (Stanley Beard). Unfortunately, a priest (Bob Hoskins) complicates matters by witnessing the hit, but Fallon believes he knows how to keep him silent.

Audience Reviews for A Prayer for the Dying

  • Mar 12, 2007
    This above average thriller is rife with ludicrous performances and ripe in symbolism, even down to the blind girl Mickey Rourke falls for. Almost worth it for Bob Hoskins as a priest beating someone over the head with a dustbin lid!

    It was ok, there was some decent action but the opening scene led me to believe it would be better than it was. Not something I would want to see again.
