The Devil's Own: 9

Good solid movie with great acting. While I usually need comedy to keep my interest, this somber drama moved right along with a good blend of action and substance. Main characters and relationships were well developed. Although the story line did require a lot of killing and violence, it was not made overly gory: the camera cuts away before you hide your face. I left the theater feeling more than a little lucky that I've never had to endure living in such a circle of hate.
