Michael is a perpetual waster. He owes money to Perrier, a local thug. When two enforcers demand payment by nightfall, Michael does a burglary with two others but won't be paid till morning. All he has to do is stay away from the thugs until he can get the money then give it to Perrier. But the lads catch Michael and start to deliver a beating, but Brenda, Michael's suicidal neighbor, shoots one. Now they must run for their lives, accompanied by Jim, Michael's estranged father who claims to be dying and has come to reconcile with his son. Will any of the trio see the sun rise? And can Michael become enlightened, become a better man?Written by
Despite being set in Dublin, an ad for a UK store which does not trade in the Republic of Ireland can clearly be seen in the background of one scene. See more »
Voice of The Reaper:
The ocean, huh? Never fails to provoke a person to musing on philosophical shit. Heavy shit, like life and death, and fate, and all that bewildering shit. The fuckin' universe. The individual's seeming insignificant in it. But are we insignificant? I mean take, for example, this individual. Wears the name of Michael McCrea. Last night he imbibed to beat the band. And today he's paying the seedy price. It's evening. He's having himself a little siesta, yeah? Little catnap. Now relax...

Not bad just lacking a good storyline.
Perrier's Bounty is a gangster flick packed full of fantastic actors like Jim Broadbent . Brendan Gleeson and Cillian Murphy so why has nobody heard of it? I'm not totally sure why this passed everyone by when it was released in May because it's a pretty decent film. It has plenty of action , it full of humour and Broadbent and Gleeson are on top of their game. The only criticism i can really give it is that the story is uninspiring. It's as if the director got the best actors around yet forgot about the plot. It can be compared to the likes of Lock, Stock and two smoking Barrels but without the cutting edge. Despite this I'm sure most people will enjoy it , that's if anybody can get hold of it!
