Fifty Dead Men Walking (2008): review- 6/10

A petty crook becomes an informer for the British while rising in the ranks of the IRA.

Excellent acting, and sometimes wonderfully tense: the relationship between McGartland and Fergus is perfectly described, as is the atmosphere of Catholic housing estates during the troubles.

The film suffers from some Hollywood cliches, however.
