...any sympathy for our "hero" is severely taxed.
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.
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.
The idiom an "eye for an eye" has never rang more true.
Mark O'Connor's film isn't subtle, but it's made with swagger and its antihero fits the bill as a certain kind of crime-drama archetype: overambitious, stupid and doomed, he nonetheless has a crude poignancy.
Mark O'Connor's film is a formulaic, but confidently handled gangster flick set in the rock-hard Darndale district of north Dublin.
It manages the trick of respecting the aspirations of those left behind by the Celtic Tiger economy while handing out a few tough lessons on the cost of responsibility.
Connors' compelling performance creates a degree of sympathy for Jason however the film seems a little too fond of his brutality and casual misogyny.
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.
O'Connor captures a potent disaffection of youth, and the ease with which this can slip into lawlessness.
The violence isn't played for laughs and Connors's performance is genuinely moving, though there's an irresistible sprinkling of salty, vulgar humour to lighten the otherwise bleak mood ...
The film is crackingly done, with a bleak humour when needed and a black savagery when not.
Unnervingly realistic. Cardboard Gangsters is a tense look at gritty gang culture in Ireland.
