Michael Lynch is Dublin's most notorious criminal, his brazen robberies making him the bane of the Gardaí and a hero to his fellow working class city Northsiders. When not playing happy families with his two wives - sisters Christine and Lisa - and his children, Lynch is busy plotting elaborate heists, thinking as much about the showmanship of it all as he is the loot involved. On his case is Garda Noel Quigley, his determination to convict Lynch slowly turning into an obsession. Inevitably, a showdown looms.Written by

The General was funnier, but this one is well acted
This seems like a remake of "the General", John Boorman's film on the life of Martin Cahill. The plot is almost identical, only The General seems to have had a touch more flair to it, and was a good bit funnier. Brendan Gleeson cracks me up in a way that Kevin Spacey can never do - just hearing Brendan say "morder" for murder is enough to set one to giggling....
