Critic Reviews for Route Irish
A tougher and more genre-inspired work that we'd expect from social-realist doyen Loach.
Although not especially revelatory, [...] Route Irish is still a success as an often troubling, occasionally thrilling and always tragic low-key drama.
A characteristic Loach film, a gripping conspiracy thriller not unlike Hidden Agenda, his film on the Troubles.
The amateur-hour acting and melodramatic, cop-out ending expose Loach's faux attempts at realism to be as phoney as anything produced in Hollywood.
Audience Reviews for Route Irish
Known route, but didn't wear me off.
An utterly powerful and truly explosive edge of your seat thriller. A muscular, intense, hard-boiled, intricately plotted and well character developed movie that hits home hard. A total powerhouse of a movie that`s deeply personal, dramatic and realistic. A triumph from Director, Ken Loach. A gripping, riveting and utterly electrifying conspiracy thriller thats fast-paced, well-crafted and superbly acted. Mark Womack gives an explosive and outstanding performance. Andrea Lowe is terrific. This film is dark and extreamly good. An riveting tour de force. A must-see. A full-throttle and pulse-pounding mystery. It grabs hold of you and dose not let go until the very last frame. A brutal and hard-core experiance. Movies dont get anymore intense or riveting than this.
Ken Loach brings us the British view of the Iraqi war..a topic done to death by the Americans. He mostly succeeds although it feels as though it could have been wrapped up a lot sooner in order to save us from non essential dramatic pieces.
