Kill the Irishman 3.0 stars

Kill the Irishman movie poster

Jonathan Hensleigh reheats the old pasta of Coppola and Scorsese gangster films. He adds meaty Irish stew: Danny Greene, a slab-fitted Cleveland thug and “friend of the working man.” Ray Stevenson plays him with steamroller force, though his sensitive eyes make him seem like an odd merger of Colin Firth and Steven Seagal. Vincent D’Onofrio and Val Kilmer are side dishes of lard for this generic feast of blood, betrayal, corruption, explosions. Christopher Walken is a loan shark who steals scenes, and Fionnula Flanagan is a Celtic fire-breather of righteousness. This is morbid pulp, lively and involving. 2011.
