An uneven mix of conventional caper and sentimental hooey, but there's no denying a certain quotient of fun.

Rating: B- -- A bit of underworld blarney from the Old Sod, "Perrier's Bounty" is another darkly comical-philosophical Irish gangster movie. The film, directed by TV veteran Ian Fitzgibbon and scripted by Mark O'Rowe ("Boy A"), doesn't quite work. Full Review

Enough already with the Guy Ritchie knock-offs.

Charming and cynical, violent and sweet, well-made and offbeat...Perrier's Bounty is an entertaining film that doesn't take itself seriously. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- A festival favorite, Perrier's Bounty is one of those comedic British crime thrillers I just can't quite figure out what the fuss is all about. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Perrier's Bounty is all stock material, full of characters that deserve more than the cliched shootouts and showdowns that befall them. Even the movie's most natural impulses seem to come from a can. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- A fast-paced and enjoyable if violent diversion that revels in its quirky characters, committed performances and involving twists. Full Review

Product Description:

An ordinary guy gets himself in an extraordinary amount of trouble in this blend of comedy and action from director Ian Fitzgibbon. Michael McCrea (Cillian Murphy) is a regular guy who isn't especially good with money, which leads him to borrow some money from Perrier (Brendan Gleeson), a local loan shark and strong-arm man. Unfortunately, Michael isn't able to pay back the money on schedule, and he quickly learns that Perrier is one man you don't want angry; now there's a price on Michael's head and he needs to pay his debt quickly if he wants to live. Michael accepts a proposal from a small-time hood to do a quick breaking-and-entering job in exchange for part of the loot, but things go very wrong and somehow the neighbor girl Michael is sweet on, Brenda (Jodie Whittaker), ends up shooting someone. Now Michael is on the run from two sets of crooks, has a dead body to deal with, must find an alibi for Brenda, and has to mend fences with his crusty father (Jim Broadbent) before his dad is willing to help. PERRIER'S BOUNTY was an official selection at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.
