The good news is, The Devil's Own doesn't live down to its reputation.

January 26, 2010
Presents itself as being about Something Important, whereas in fact it is really about nothing very much at all.

Finally just another schoolmarmish prestige piece touting America's moral superiority

What's left is a lot of moral grappling, not all of which has one iota of relevance to the plot.

January 16, 2003
Unjustly dismissed and really quite watchable, despite Brad Pitt's silly Irish accent.

Though Hour 2's heavy emphasis on physical and emotional confrontations stimulates dramatic momentum, this respectable superstar meeting is finally, of all things, ordinary.
