Quotes

Chief Constable: Three more bodies. It's an epidemic. If it wasn't for the remoteness of this god-forsaken place, we'd have the Press here, all over us.
Detective: I know. I know. There's something I'm missing. But I will find them.
Chief Constable: You miss the point, James. You speak as if we're operating in a vacuum. The fact that only some sort of miracle is preventing a general panic, has obviously eluded you.
Detective: That is not happening because this time everybody knows that those being killed have blood on their hands.
Chief Constable: Are they less ...

Forget the politics this is just a rubbish film.
28 November 2018 | by mickharrySee all my reviews

I'm on a free trial with Amazon Prime and have been binge watching movies, most of which are new to me. This was such a one. It's a revenge and "who is doing it" movie. These movies, by their nature, almost force you to stay to the end. Towards the end some of the perpetrators reveal themselves and explain their personal reasons for their deeds. (Some of those deeds are carried out in situations that require people to do things at precisely the right location and precisely the time. The planning is immaculate and everybody who they are after is in the right place at the right time. For instance, going to the chip shop for supper or changing ties on mannikins in a shop window display,) There is also, I think, an underlying bit of police/political skulduggery. which left be totally baffled. Colm Meaney is the old, wise to the ways of the Belfast world cop who has monologues on history, philosophy, cynicism, wisdom. At one time he talks at length in an empty room. I thought it was empty but the a wife turns up later in the movie. He has earlier declared that he has lost everything that mattered to him. Not her, obviously. Overall, the impression is that the film starts off with an interesting set up but no one had an ending in mind and they cobbled it together as the budget ran out. Very poor on everyone's part. Rubbish!
