The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS/FILM - DC

Di­rected by Mark O’Con­nor. Star­ring John Con­nors, Fionn Wal­ton, Jimmy Small­horne, Kier­ston Ware­ing

O’Con­nor, a young Dubliner of some in­ven­tion, de­liv­ers his most com­plete film yet with this story of a small-time hood­lum (Con­nors) seek­ing to take a few steps up the lad­der. Set in Darn­dale, Card­board Gang­sters has ad­mirable ki­netic sweep and a keen sense for the ab­sur­di­ties of city life. The pic­ture does lack story and struc­ture. But it is so en­joy­able on a scene-by-scene ba­sis that it proves hard to care. Con­nors is great. 18 cert, gen re­lease, 92 min
