Enjoyable movie, but it would help if they got the basics right

Firstly, as a movie, this is quite entertaining and they have certainly nailed the 70s vibe with the vehicles and fashions etc.

The action is good and overall, the acting is better than average, making for an enjoyable viewing experience.

The story, whilst nothing new, is delivered well enough that you start to build some empathy for the characters involved. Violence seldom improves a situation and perpetual violence is a difficult cycle to break, particularly when you have a personal motivation.

What I don't understand, particularly given the attention to detail with vehicles etc, is why the main military character is described as "An SAS Officer" in the synopsis.

Firstly, he is wearing Sergeant stripes, so he's an NCO, not an officer. Furthermore, there is no mention at any point of the SAS, unless I somehow missed it.

Overall, a good movie and well worth a watch.

A fast paced, action packed thriller.

Michael O'Hara, a retired Irish paramilitary stands and watches as his pregnant wife is shot dead by Henry Tempest, an SAS Officer. O'Hara has one clear motive, revenge.

It's an intense game of cat and mouse, a fast moving thriller set during the troubles. An excellent, fast faced, action packed movie, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I know the film is set in the 70's, but the wonderful music gave it kind of an 80's flavour, lots of wonderful synth going on.

The visuals are fantastic, it's a great looking film, the sets are spot on, The Streets, cars, fashions and hairstyles are all authentic, right down to those hideous plants in baskets. If I had one criticism, I thought that some of the dialogue sounded a little bit muddled at times.

That scene where the device was triggered, that was some moment, again, amazing visuals.

Colin Morgan was excellent I thought, such a good performance from him, a great supporting cast, including the wonderful Mark Strong.

8/10.

A good watch.

A story within a story of a former IRA member who was trying flee with his pregnant wife but in their escape his wife is accidentally killed by a solider but he now has to rejoin the terror unit in order to carry out acts of terrorism in London to exact revenge on the soldier who kill his wife and unborn child. It was good watch because the premise of the story was terrorism, revenge and counter intelligence all wrapped in two persons. The soldier and the former IRA member. Honestly I never wanted someone to get their comeuppance so bad in a film they way I wanted a terrorist to kill the soldier who killed his pregnant wife. The ending had me feeling a little frustrated until it didn't (no spoilers) A definite recommend of a solid one time watch.
