In rural Ireland, Brendan Gleeson plays one of the Irish
guard, a hard-drinking, heavy-cursing, prostitute-shagging policeman who speaks his mind, even if some of his views cross the borders if casual racism.
Investigating a drug trafficking operation, he is partnered
with American FBI agent Don Cheadle, who is the fish-out-of-water in this darkly comic thriller.
Had American shores produced this, the focus would have been
on Cheadle's character, but Gleeson is without doubt the star of the show here, with an excellent central performance.
