There is really very little to say about this film. It was entertaining enough while watching it, but it wasn’t a gripping or wildly entertaining film. Perfectly suitable for a dreary wet afternoon’s entertainment. It made me laugh in a couple of places, and I always like Brendan Gleeson in any role1
So yeah, I’m going to damn this film with faint praise, which isn’t what I want to do, because it isn’t a terrible film. It is a perfectly adequate average film.
apart from Calvary, I hated that film even if it made Sligo look so beautiful. And The Guard was pretty bad too, I blame the John Michael McDonagh though. ↩
