  • Director-screenwriter Mark Mahon is unable to inject any freshness whatsoever into this highly formulaic genre piece, though he has elicited several good performances.

  • The script delivers a series of low blows to the intelligence from which auds will never recover.

  • Under Mark Mahon's by-the-numbers direction, Strength and Honour is a standard soaper that might be helpful to watch when you're suffering from insomnia some night.

  • There is not a real character to be found, nor a single convincing punch thrown. But I do like the name 'Smasher'.

    Dec 7, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Mr. Madsen fails to elevate this earnest morality tale, written, produced and directed by Mark Mahon, above excessive banality.

    Dec 7, 2007 | Rating: 2/5
  • Relentlessly dismal and dismally predictable.

    michael madsen comes off well in this irish drama, and vinnie jones as a gypsy, not really learning anything from his time on the set of snatch where brad pitt played a exellent pikey. a drama with some heart, and some good scenes of fighting thrown in
