  • ...any sympathy for our "hero" is severely taxed.

    October 3, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Mark O'Connor's film is a formulaic, but confidently handled gangster flick set in the rock-hard Darndale district of north Dublin.

  • O'Connor puts the pedal to the metal with this picture and drives it like he stole it, as they say - with some exhilarating results.

    August 3, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The film is crackingly done, with a bleak humour when needed and a black savagery when not.

    July 27, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It is sure to appeal to a large audience in Ireland and abroad and I look forward to what all involved will show us next.

    March 28, 2018 | Full Review…
  • It explores themes similar to the director's previous films, King Of The Travellers, Stalker, and Between The Canals, and, like them, persuasively evokes the lives of marginalised people.

    Unnervingly realistic. Cardboard Gangsters is a tense look at gritty gang culture in Ireland.
