Another Northern Ireland political thriller done in a bland TV style. Lots of night shots of white-lines in the road, wordy script, dull direction, faces you see in other movies but don't remember, tense atmosphere that tires, same tone in each scene, and a story you won't care about. A murder of a teenager decades back gets uncovered at a trial. Only the explosion at the end makes you take notice. The rest is unoriginal rubbish that you'd see in a Cold War thriller from the 1960s. For example, the main guy meets an attractive, younger woman in a hotel, buys her a drink, and the next scene they are in bed. Then it's revealed that photographs were taken of the encounter. What a shock that was. Never did I expect he was being set up! From the director of the truly awful Eden - that's all you need to know about this picture's quality/originality.
