Comedy thriller⊲ As a small-town police sergeant in the west of Ireland, Brendan Gleeson makes the most of his overweight, middle-aged, gleefully cynical and defiantly politically incorrect character. He has to work with strait-laced FBI agent Don Cheadle, who arrives from America to bring down a cocaine-smuggling ring. As the case proceeds in bantering buddy-movie fashion, it’s clear that Brendan is a lot smarter than he pretends to be.
This quirky thriller delivers intricate plotting, tense standoffs, blasting shootouts – and a great deal of wit. Dir: John Michael Mcdonagh 2011, 15, 95min
