Based on a true story, this fast paced film set in Northern Ireland during the time of the "troubles" grabs your interest from the very beginning and never lets go. It is a well written and well acted film starring Ben Kingsley as a British Agent and Jim Sturgess as the informant he recruited. The supporting cast, with few exceptions, is just as good. The film seems to capture the chaos, violence, and shifting morality of a country engulfed in civil war. I highly recommend the film for those interested in the subject of Ireland during those times, as well as for those who simply enjoy unrelenting action. I must warn you that the film does not shy away from graphic violence as well as limited sexual themes.
