ODEON says...

It's 1847 and Ireland is in the grip of the Great Famine that has ravaged the country for two long years. Feeney, a hardened Irish Ranger who has been fighting for the British Army abroad, abandons his post to return home and reunite with his family.

He's seen more than his share of horrors, but nothing prepares him for the famine's hopeless destruction of his homeland that has brutalised his people and where there seems to be no law and order.

He discovers his mother starved to death and his brother hanged by the brutal hand of the English. With little else to live for, he sets a destructive path to avenge his family.

Tough viewing

Reviewer: BramblerDate: 2018-09-12

I knew little about this before going to see it. Gosh, it is hard to watch some of the violence, but the story is so powerful we just had to stay to the end. I would recommend this movie for its historical content, but be prepared for the violence.
