A thriller about an IRA gunman who draws an American family into the crossfire of terrorism. Frankie McGuire is one of the IRA's deadliest assassins. But when he is sent to the U.S. to buy weapons, Frankie is housed with the family of Tom O'Meara, a New York cop who knows nothing about Frankie's real identity. Their surprising friendship, and Tom's growing suspicions, force Frankie to choose between the promise of peace or a lifetime of murder.Written by

At the beginning, when Frankie's Mother is dishing out the stew for dinner, she sits down, picks up her napkin and then clasps her hands together for grace without serving herself any food. In the next wide shot there is food on her plate. See more »
Now first of all I am not a Brad hater. I rather think he is quite a good actor. He shows good potential. As for Harrison Ford well the man is an icon. I have hardly ever left the cinema during a film but with this one I did.
Now as for why I really dislike this film.....First of all the accents. Oh please! Brad has as much an Irish accent as I do a Jamacian one. I was hoping that they would have asked me to be his voice double but for some reason they did not?? Ok next the story: Hollywood has a lot to answer for but their handling of a very volatile situation (to say the least) was equivalent in trying to make a world war 2 movie with Hitler as a tragic hero. I could go on being real political but I am not going to so there.
What else? Ehhhmmmm I am not too sure as I walked out after 35 minutes so that is all I have to say.
