About the Movie

Enjoyable Irish thriller with a blackly comic edge and strong performances from Murphy and Broadbent but there’s never a sense of real danger and it occasionally feels over-familiar.

Movie Review from

“There’s a point to all this drivel,” growls The Grim Reaper (Gabriel Byrne in VO) in Ian Fitzgibbon’s intermittently amusing crime caper.

Actually there are three: don’t borrow money from murderously impatient gangsters; a great cast does not a great film make; and eccentricity alone isn’t enough to create the next In Bruges.

Movie Review from

Unlike its cockney equivalent, the Irish gangster movie – however hackneyed its storyline – can usually be relied upon to deliver a modicum of wit and flair. ‘Perrier’s Bounty’ is a prime example: it marries a predictable plot – Cillian Murphy owes money to some bad fellas, complications ensue – with a goodly portion of smart banter, off-kilter characterisation and knockabout violence.
