Director and co-writer Lance Daly tells a blunt-force story in blunt-force fashion, draining the color from both landscape and denizens, and spelling out details in dialogue where he thinks it might be helpful.
While the Great Famine provides the brutal historical backdrop, Lance Daly's gripping film is, at heart, a Western, complete with avenging anti-hero, relentlessly pursuing posse and a couple of cracking shoot-outs.
The cast in this film is incredible. Hugo Weaving transforms from a reprehensible villain to a heroic champion with grand ease. James Frecheville's seething intensity and mastery of physical acting is a sight to behold.
