Trying to squeeze 4 years into 90 minutesBy Stephen Lindsay from Northern Ireland , 05 Oct 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]With the emphasis initially on Brian Keenan's kidnap, we are gradually introduced to John McCarthy. Opposites at first, Keenan a staunch Republican, and McCarthy as the antithesis of everything Keenan despises.
Eventually they become friends, and the bond becomes solid, as they suffer many long hours in different locations.
One thing, Terry Waite isn't mentioned during the entire film, even though for some of the time, he was in the next cell.
Could have been better.

blind fightBy a customer from aldershot england , 16 Jun 2005brilliant film very sad wish i had read brian keenans book an evil cradling first.
well worth renting this film
IntenseBy Anonymous from Scotland , 26 May 2005Worth my time. Engrossing. I hadn't known the facts so the film never gives away the ending. Its one of those movies where you really _do_ feel and care about the characters.
DISSAPOINTINGBy a customer from CHESHIRE , 23 May 2005Very disapointing film indeed. I had expected a lot more especially on Terry Waite.
Hard work but worthyBy a customer from Hertfordshire , 20 May 2005This was a difficult film to watch. It's all the more harrowing because you know it all really happened and this makes it hard to sit through. It isn't an escapist feel good movie but one that people should watch. A tough subject handled well I'd say.
