It's fairly standard stuff and doesn't do much that you wouldn't already expect from any other revenge thriller.
But the setting for this is absolutely fascinating and it's the sort of thing that makes you wonder why it hasn't been done before.
Setting something like during the Irish famine makes the stakes that much more intense, even if there's nothing more to this than any revenge thriller, at first glance.
But there's a couple of fun performances - Hugo Weaving is always reliable, Stephen Rea makes the most of his collaborator role.
James Frecheville is the standout here, though. A proper presence and a huge surprise, especially considering I haven't really taken notice of him since 'Animal Kingdom.'
