Expecting to be disappointed, after a while it took me by surprise and ended excellent
I like Dylan Moran from his work in Black Books, although I found some of his stand-up to be really indulgent in terms of long confused gaps… however I was intrigued to see this film starring he and Michael Caine and curiosity got the better of me.
I was stunned.
Dylan’s vocal range and characterisation of the different people he was playing in the film was absolutely perfect, something beyond the skills of a mere stand-up comedian and really truly on a par with alec guinness, john hurt and the other greats- truly he was skilled in his portrayal.
Michael Caine was a very convincing prima donna and the standard british film device of having a precocious child on hand to be overly wise and withering worked- the only aspect I didn’t really like was the unbelieveable plot feature of the chemistry between Dolores and the cockney gangsta’s hard man played by Dylan.
Other than that, it was great.
I also like the non-cop-out ending where it did end up happily ever after, but with MC getting a beating. OK, it’s not exactly being strung up by your goolies and beijng disembowelled (which is what a real crime boss would do to you if you nicked £50k off them) but it showed at least a small measure of reality in the story.
I liked the film, and I would recommend it to anyone- but- I would also warn them not to turn it off after 15 minutes because it started a bit slow. If you stick it out, then it will all come back.
And with regards to the swearing- well, they’re in Ireland. It wouldn’t be real otherwise.
