Critic Reviews for I Went Down

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (4)

Almost perfect.

February 5, 2009 | Rating: 4/5

Well-acted crime drama, though the thick accents might be off-putting to some.

March 19, 2003 | Rating: 4/5

This good-natured, rough-housing Irish comedy is one of those buddy pictures where two oddly matched chaps thrown together by caustic Fate eventually save each other's life and become the best of buddies.

January 7, 2003
Critics Inc./America Online

This Irish crime charmer has 'the gift of gab.'

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It's a tribute to Conor McPherson's richly detailed script and the fine performances by McDonald and Gleeson that they genuinely do grow on you.
