What a horribly boring plot synopsis. Better sex it up with some f*cking, some explosions or some gunplay or else Americans won't watch it, even if you associate the word "Republican" with the word "terrorist".
I am so over IRA movies,especially glorification of the IRA like sons of anarchy seems to do. The last explosive device to go of on British soil was 2001 in Birmingham and thank God no one died. Stop with these stirring up sh*t movies Hollywood, its old and boring and just be thankful of the peace.
@Greenlensman, i caught the pilot of Hannibal, it was not bad at all. The acting was decent and i am curious to see what they do with the series, i felt like it had some more substance than that show the following.
billy mate the bombings in the 70s were false flags done by the british security services mi5 or mi6 to blame on the irish thats why they released all those inocent irish from prison in the 90s the real terriorsts are in the government.
