| Quirky criminals not funny enough
Darren Perrier (Brendan Gleeson) is a vicious local gangster. Michael McCrea (Cillian Murphy) owes him $1k and two thugs are hounding him for it. Brenda (Jodie Whittaker) is Michael's neighbor. His father Jim (Jim Broadbent) tells him that he's dying of cancer. He asks The Mull (Liam Cunningham) for a loan. They don't have any money but they have a burglary target. They are going for a big payday with blackmail but he's not getting paid yet. When the two thugs catches Michael, a heart-broken Brenda shoots one. Michael and Brenda go on the run with his father Jim.

This is a brit film from director Ian Fitzgibbon. It looks like he's trying to make yet another quirky gangster movie from the island reminiscent of the Guy Ritchie style. This doesn't have quite the same stuff. There are big actors, and wacky criminals. However it's just not wacky enough to be funny. It's not gritty enough to be compelling. Most of all, it doesn't have the energy to break through. It is good to see the great actors involved but it's not much more than that.
