Audience Reviews for The Devil's Own

    Another solid, slow burning thriller from Pakula where the audience knows one man's violent past as an IRA terrorist (Pitt) and waits for the policeman landlord (Ford) to catch on before it's too late.

    Don't look for a happy ending. It's not an American story. It's an Irish one. Brad Pitt plays Frankie 'Angel' McGuire a wanted IRA soldier who is sent to New York City from Northern Ireland to purchase a massive amount of weapons. Harrison Ford does a good job, as the sympathetic New York cop who takes in the IRA gun runner in having no idea of his past. Is his Ford going to find out who Angel is or what he is planning to do! Well you'll have to see the film to find out. It's well paced with decent acting, Brad Pitt's accent aside. The movie twists you emotionally in a way that few films can. You connect with the two main characters, and you grow to like them and find yourself getting involved in their story. Worth watching! I'll end it with a quote that reinforces this movie and one that I believe "One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter"

    An IRA agent (Brad Pitt) who has moved from Ireland to New York in order to complete his agenda. He lives under a cover name and moves in to the home of a cop (Harrison Ford). It turns out that the Irish man is one of the deadliest assassins and he is in the US in order to buy weapons. The cop soon discovers that something is wrong and who the Irish man's true identity is. This movie was great and very exciting. Pitt performed very well as an Irish an Ford was awesome as always.

    This is basically Patriot Games 2 lol. One of the seemingly endless amount of Harrison Ford movies where his family is in danger. In his defense, however, I must mention that his family, while clearly in danger throughout the film, is not in harm's way because of his actions, but instead from Brad Pitt's, and Ford's family DOES NOT ACTUALLY GET KIDNAPPED. Oh my God...what a mind-blowing revelation lol. Jokes aside, this is a good, emotionally moving film. The Devil's Own juxtaposes Pitt's character, an IRA terrorist, with Ford's, an Irish cop from Manhattan. Basically, the movie (through the characters themselves) shows that if the roles were reversed, the two characters, though totally different, would've probably taken each other's paths, at least to an extent. Though I enjoy this film's Irish theme, it does get a bit over the top--almost to the point of embarassment if you're Irish. I'm part Irish, and my Irish side of the family (which is very traditional/the average family) is not nearly as drunkenly vibrant as these people are--it's almost kind of insulting at times. Stereotypes aside, The Devil's Own is a really cool film that I'd recommend to anyone.
