Another Film Board movie that's like a cheap Irish version of a famous Hollywood title. A man gets involved with an online competition where two people fight to the death and collect the cash winnings. The best thing here is the washed-out look while the worst part is the hand-held camera work. Like most of these films you won't care who gets killed or what happens. It tires you out and several sup-plots (the bank chasing the mortgage, the promotion at work) disappear. There's nothing Irish here either apart from accents and bus numbers. Like every Irish movie there's no set piece. Instead, lots of cuts and fast pacing but nothing worth remembering. A one-idea story that can't sustain interest for feature length.
