Editorial Reviews

In a society divided by haves and have nots, wealthy Irish capitalist Liam O'Leary (Brendan Gleeson) has it all. But now, Liam is being stalked by a menacing look-alike, intent on stealing away everything he has: his job, his wife (Sex and the City's Kim Cattrall), and his sanity. As his perfect world comes crashing down, Liam must fight to stay alive and uncover the shocking secret of his shadowy past before it destroys him.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ragged Tale January 27, 2011
Overall, this is not what I'd call a total failure but I was expecting more from John Boorman, the director who gave us the likes of Deliverance, Zardoz, Excalibur, The Emerald Forest and, one of my all-time favorites, Hope and Glory. In this uneven mix of comedy and drama, a successful Irish real estate tycoon tries to fend off an aggressive doppleganger who might be the product of his imagination or it could be his actual twin. The plot held a lot of potential and could have been an entertaining affair but it's spoiled by characters who don't ring true--the most glaring example is the main character's Marxist-spouting son. Ultimately, the tone of the film is so off-base that director Boorman could have changed the entire film into a farce by simply replacing the dramatic music score with lighter comedic cues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie!! September 27, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love movies made in Ireland or the U.K. and this one does not disappoint. Great story, great actors. If you're into a good storyline without anyone getting blown up, decapitated, terrorized, etc., then you'll really enjoy this film.
