A good movie

I wasn't sure what to expect from this movie but since I have a weak spot for both Liam Neeson and James Nesbitt, I was quite eager to check it out. Basically, it combines two very good storylines, one in the 70's involving a teenager killing a young man and an even younger boy witnessing this killing and another storyline involving the same killer and the same witness many years later when they ... read more

A good movie

“I wasn't sure what to expect from this movie but since I have a weak spot for both Liam Neeson and James Nesbitt, I was quite eager to check it out. Basically, it combines two very good storylines, one in the 70's involving a teenager killing a young man and an even younger boy witnessing this killing and another storyline involving the same killer and the same witness many years later when they are supposed to confront each other during some kind of TV show. The main issue with this movie is that those two tales were so good, they could or should have focused on only one of them and the rather short running time (barely above 80 minutes) didn't help either.

"Mar.27 FIVE MINUTES OF HEAVEN James Nesbitt’s over-the-top performance as a clinically-deranged man obsessed with getting his revenge on his brother’s assassin is a work of art. A performance that is a must-see. "
