Rick Dabagian’s review:
Boooooooooo. What an overrated movie.
Someone tell whoever wrote this that you can't write lame non-joke "jokes" and call it dark comedy. There were a few good laughs in here but the majority of it is dull, especially the first 15-20 minutes which had me thinking about turning it off.
Gleeson is good, Cheadle is ok, but this movie isn't very good. I wouldn't quite call it bad, but it's not too far away. The plot revolves around Gleeson's small Irish town that he is the police seargant of, and Cheadle's FBI agent who comes looking for some big time drug dealers.
It never gets too serious in tone. A few good supporting characters don't get much attention. The movie is poorly paced and there are some useless side plots. Skip it unless you want to try to find whatever the critics saw in this.
