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

Di­rected by Bren­dan Mul­downey. Star­ring Tom Hol­land, Jon Bern­thal, Richard Ar­mitage, Stanley We­ber

A relic is trans­ported from a re­mote monastery in me­dieval Ireland. Mul­downey’s Her­zo­gian quest movie, from a lean script by Jamie Han­ni­gan, ex­ploits the nation’s an­cient dis­con­tents to sat­is­fy­ing ef­fect as it drags a party of zealots, tyrants and op­por­tunists across the damp in­te­rior.

There’s some­thing of Ni­co­las Wind­ing Refn’s un­val­ued Val­halla

Ris­ing to Pilgrimage, but the film is busier, nois­ier and less oblique. En­joy with a glass of mead and some scro­fula. Club, IFI/Light House, Dublin, 96 min
