Critic Reviews for Perrier's Bounty
This is one of those time-killer movies that definitely goes well with a pint of Guinness.
Perrier's Bounty is all stock material, full of characters that deserve more than the cliched shootouts and showdowns that befall them. Even the movie's most natural impulses seem to come from a can.
An uneven mix of conventional caper and sentimental hooey, but there's no denying a certain quotient of fun.
A fast-paced and enjoyable if violent diversion that revels in its quirky characters, committed performances and involving twists.
Enough already with the Guy Ritchie knock-offs.
A hectic, ultraviolent romp that is inordinately pleased with its own sardonic nihilism.
Audience Reviews for Perrier's Bounty
simple, strait narrative with few surprises, but highly entertaining. the film held a solid tension between the dramatic and the amusing. the end was a bit silly, but overall the film had character. very good watch.
This movie is totally awesome to watch. A wickedly hilarious and explosively entertaining crime-thriller that's just a pure joy. It's fast-paced, terrifically original and vastly enjoyable with enough twist and action to go around. A dazzling crime flick that packs alot of heat as well as humor and strongly committed performances from it's wonderful cast. A tremendously enjoyable and very funny action-packed comic thriller that has loving every minute. The best Irish crime film since In Bruge. It's like a Guy Ritchie movie, except only smarter. The all-cast is just wonderful in their roles. Cillian Murphy is fantastic. Brendan Gleeson is excellent as always. Jim Broadbent is marvelous, he's brilliant in this role whether he's tackling comedy or the dramatic side of the character. A full-clip of fun from start to finish.

Summary: Dublin gangster Perrier (Brendan Gleeson) orders his henchmen to collect a debt from small-time crook Michael (Cillian Murphy). But when Michael's unstable pal, Brenda (Jodie Whittaker), accidentally shoots one of the goons during the shakedown, the freaked-out couple must go on the run. Complications mount when Michael's estranged dad, Jim (Jim Broadbent), comes along for the ride.
My Thoughts: "It's a fun, humorous, quirky Irish gangster film. Great acting by Cillian Murphy and Jim Broadbent. Liked their chemistry. Action throughout, only a few slow spots. Was nice seeing Cillian Murphy in a more funnier role. Just a good little action flick that won't be wasted in a rental."
