Critic Reviews for Hennessy

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

This is a movie about a man snatching failure out of the jaws of the deus ex machina.

October 23, 2004 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The weak script and uninspiring dialogue is compensated for by the crisp action sequences and fast-pacing of the story.

Audience Reviews for Hennessy

Taut thriller set during the later troubles between Ireland and England. The use of American actors Steiger and Lee Remick is a little puzzling in this most European story but they acquit themselves well nonetheless. Excellent use of stock footage at the end to make it seem the queen and members of Parliment are actually involved as events unfold.
