On the wings of the Sopranos era concept 'crime is a business as any other',
here comes the Irish version. The problem is that it lies entirely on the
shoulders of Oscar-touched Kevin Stacey. It tries to be a very Irish film,
with human and enjoyable gangsters, the cops are the villain, and the
victims never really show up. The charm relies entirely on Kevin Stacey's
performance, though some other good acting can be seen around - for example
Linda Fiorentino who gets too little screen time, in my opinion, and some
other supporting actors who must be Irish or British because they are both
good, as well as fresh faces. However, acting only cannot save the movie, it
is after all easy to forget, and certainly cannot provide the answer to the
key question - can ordinary decent criminals really be ordinary decent
