3 out of 10 Intense and violent
Darragh from Meath, 20 May 2013
Very dark and intense film with shockingly strong violence which was sometimes OTT. Too violent for my tastes. Good performances all round, particularly from Tom Hardy and Guy Pearce who makes an excellant psyco. I found Shia Lebeough character mildly irritating throughout, and if he actually grew a pair the film might of finished alot sooner. Plot was good though very slow, things happened but at a crawl pace. Didn't like the ending, felt they could have ended things alot differently and better for the 3 brothers. Definitely worth a few, but if you don't like graphic violence this would not be for you.

4 out of 10 Gritty violent drama
Niall from Cork, 24 Jun 2013
A very interesting biopic of a family of bootleggers in the prohibition era. The story is very well told, very well acted out and keeps you engaged throughout. The occasional violence is very violent, brutal and realistic. Tom Hardy is just too good as the main character, the strongest brother.

3.5 out of 10 Not bad at all
Nuala from Dublin, 08 Feb 2014
Enjoyable enough but a little bleak at times that said it keeps you interested. Some good suspense but Guy Pearce's characterisation as the Special Deputy Charley Rakes is way over the top for such a great actor.

It takes a while to explode, but the story is interesting and gripping. Stunning scenery too. Worth a rental.
