Johnny was

This one sounded bad on paper! An IRA drama wih Vinnie Jones, Samantha Mumba, Roger Daltry, Patrick Bergin and a famous boxer? Surely it wouldn't work? Wrong! It's a fine movie (in a straight-to-DVD sense!) where two IRA men escape from prison and shack up with Jones (who's the nicest character here!). There's a strange mix of Irish and black characters in this movie. Has a good soundtrack collection of songs too. Daltry is the bomber, Mumba is the neighbour, Bergin is the IRA escapee, and they all cross lines in this interesting story. Don't expect too much, unfold your arms, and you just might like this film!
