Overview

Loosely based on the remarkable true story of the British undercover agent who successfully infiltrated the IRA, writer/director Kari Skogland's thriller takes its title from author Martin McGartland's best-selling book of the same name. Set at the absolute height of the Irish civil conflict, Fifty Dead Men Walking begins as 22-year-old Martin McGartland is recruited by the British police to infiltrate the IRA and report back with intelligence. It's an extremely dangerous job that could result in death or worse should his true identity be revealed, yet McGartland realizes that the information he's gathering will save countless lives. At first, the prospect of being discovered provides something of a rush for McGartland, though that initial buzz quickly wears off when his true identity is revealed and he's forced to attempt an impossible escape. Two decades later, McGartland is still on the run. Sir Ben Kingsley, Jim Sturgess, and Rose McGowan star.

If 'Body Of Lies' (which stars Dicaprio) were to take place in Ireland it would look like '50 Dead Men Walking'. If you can make it through the first hour you'll enjoy it. I had trouble adjusting to the accent of the characters, but was more comfortable with it half-way through. 'Layer Cake' was far harder to understand in comparison. There was some serious suspense near the end of the film which made the lead-in worth it.
