Liam Neeson is good but not doing anything we haven't seen him do dozens of times already. James Nesbitt, however, delivers a mesmerizing performance playing a man about to fall apart who's next choice and next action we're never certain of. Well worth watching.
An interesting film dealing with Northern Irish Catholic angst in the form of personal revenge, rather than national defense. Although it may be situated within a ethno-political conflict, for me this film was undoubtedly about how individuals are affected by the people who are under the influence of a herd. That is, fitting in - whether it's for popularity or ethnic pride.
