Watch: Michael Collins 1996 123movies, Full Movie Online – After the disastrous defeat of Irish rebels by superior UK forces during the Easter Rising, Michael Collins develops new strategies for the independence of Ireland. His tactics include what is now recognized as urban guerrilla tactics and organized assassinations of those Irish who work as informers for the UK government, and later members of British intelligence. Although Collins is conflicted about the necessity of this violent course, by 1921 the British are willing to negotiate. Sinn Fein President Eamon de Valera sends a reluctant Collins to London to negotiate a settlement. When Collins returns with a compromise of a partitioned Ireland and an Irish Free State, not a Republic, within the British Empire he is vilified by de Valera and repudiated by lifelong friend Harry Boland after Boland learns that his girlfriend Kitty Kiernan is in love with Collins. Collins is now faced with civil war as he struggles against those who insist on complete and unconditional independence for all of Ireland..
Plot: Michael Collins plays a crucial role in the establishment of the Irish Free State in the 1920s, but becomes vilified by those hoping to create a completely independent Irish republic.

A great movie
This movie is an excellent portrayal of the brutal and often non-conventional Irish freedom struggle. The movie has several great strengths. The biggest strength is Liam Neeson in his tour-de-force. His acting in this movie is as good as it gets. His personality changes subtly throughout the movie, becoming increasingly affected by the changes of the world around him. The supporting cast is also excellent, with Rickman in one of his best roles.

Cinematography is very nice, capturing everything from the hopelessness of the defeats in the ashy cities to the beauty of the Irish landscapes. The pacing is very good as well.

If you saw this movie with no opinion on the Irish history, you will have one when you leave the theater. This shows to me how powerful this movie is. After all, Michael Collin’s tactics were not pretty, everything from car-bombings to mob-style executions. Yet we still care for him, we want him to succeed, even if he himself isn’t sure he wants to.

Without it’s politics, this movie is still excellent. It’s a great piece of movie-making, it’s involving, sad, funny and sometimes tense. One of the movies I consider classic.

An Epic Mess
It’s near impossible to be objective about political violence in Ireland but why when given the opportunity to make the definitive film about 20th century Ireland the film makers decide to shoot themselves in the foot ? Oh let me guess – this is financed by Americans for an American market

What I hate about this film is it’s pathetic attempt to be two sided . No one is shown to be an out and out villain even though extreme violence was frequently used by both sides. This maybe seen by some as being objective and two sided but strikes me as a cop out , and a cowardly one at that. I’d have no problem with the Brits being shown as the bad guys , they did commit atrocities in Ireland at this time , of that there’s no dispute , but couldn’t have the first half of the film concentrated on this more ? Likewise there was just as many violent atrocities committed by Irishmen on Irishmen following the creation of the Irish free state. Couldn’t the second half have been far more brutal in showing De Valera to be a political opportunist only interested in power and using the lives of Irish patriots in order to get it ?

Most unforgivable of all is the dilemma faced by the real life Collins of creating an independent Ireland without causing a war with the unionists in the North. Oh yes the majority of people in Northen Ireland want to remain British and a sizable minority would violently oppose a breakaway. Never once does this limp biopic point out that partition is the only optition Collins had to avert an Irish bloodbath. We see Collins going to meet the British government , then it cuts to the next scene a few months later where Collins returns to Dublin with a deal that has split Ireland in two. There is no exposition or explanation as to why Collins HAD TO negotiate partition. Instead Neil Jordan and Co decide it’s a better idea making a film that concentrates on a love triangle.

So what does this piece of Hollywood garbage actually tell us ? Only that Michael Collins called lots of people ” Gobs**** ” , that Alan Rickman can certainly act , that Julia Roberts and Aidan Quinn certainly can’t , and that Stephan Rae would make a good James Bond
