This was a tough one because essentially this is a movie that glorifies the IRA, a terrorist organization. They are responsible for tens of thousands of senseless, innocent deaths by bombing and mass shootings, all in the name of "saving northern ireland". i definately cannot watch a film that is trying ti make the viewer sympathize with the organization. i tried to watch, it just made me angry, usually youre supposed ti be on the side of the main character. not a chance

Policeman houses an Irish criminal in this boring political thriller that never thrills.

That was Brad Pitt in the good old times... The good guy, the bad guy and real bad guys! And where does the line is cross?

Cheesy. Good actors but not a good film to watch.

I expected better from Ford and Pit. This is probably the worst movie of their careers. There's no clear hint as to what this movie is about and the performances were terribly lacking.

A film that literally has nothing to say and is ultimately about absolutely nothing. Whatever possessed Pitt and Ford to sign on to this will and I hope should remain a mystery.

The tone of this film is what hinders this film, drama, action, family piece, what is it? but Ford and Pitt do their best

Slightly overlong drama stars Brad Pitt as an IRA agent coming to America to stay with Harrison Ford, who plays an honest NY cop.

Brad Pitt is making good job against Harrison Ford.

An uneven pace and storytelling compromise a promising cast and premise. It starts by building two well-established characters in unrelated parallel stories. One is a terrorist fighting the Irish government; the other is a New York cop with a strong belief in following the rules. Both characters are interesting and when the Irishman comes to America to buy weapons, things seem to take a fascinating turn when he gets housing from the police officer. Regretfully the good execution ends. Somehow, these two men form a close family-like bond. The problem is there is little explanation or development to make those genuine connections. When the action attempts to pick up, the emotional and moral conflict of the two main characters should be intense, but they are not. It loses momentum and slows down, in spite of the action picking up. It is frustrating how brutally uneven it is. To make matters worse ending is sad and unsatisfying. Harrison Ford is a very good fit for his role. Brad Pitt is not as ideal; He comes across as an American trying to act Irish. Still he has presence and holds greater potential than where this movie has. Alan Pakula is a normally a better director than this. I would expect him to tell the story with more feeling, precision, and clarity.
