A middle-aged Irish farmer, who still lives at home with his mother, sets off on a mission of revenge when the old lady is murdered.
8/10 – Not sure how this one passed me by before, but I’m glad that Netflix have got hold of it now. What a film. Absolute brutality throughout, the body count racks up quickly, and what seems like quite a slow movie at the start soon ramps up. Fans of Blue Ruin, Dead Mans Shoes, I Saw The Devil and Fury of a Patient Man will love this film – even though it’s a tried and tested formula of revenge, it’s understated nature and dark humour allows it to stand alone. The acting is a little ropey at times, but you can look past that given how good the story is. I seriously recommend watching this if revenge thrillers are up your street.
