REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..this is a very Irish, very McDonagh, very Gleeson production, with the requisite amount of cheerfully abrasive humor and mayhem..”
by Eric D. Snider [Film.com]
“..this offbeat buddy-cop comedy, Don Cheadle, as an FBI agent trying to stop a drug ring, makes the perfect foil..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
“..a great gust of very funny fresh air. An impish and impudent black comedy that knows where it's going and how to get there..”
by Kenneth Turan [LA Times]
