OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We tried to collect moviegoer opinions at several showing of this movie but there was virtually no one there. I'm talking one or two people per showing. I've never seen a movie do so poorly its opening weekend. We will try to see this movie and provide a prediction of who might enjoy it.
Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Sorry, we were not given an advance screening of this movie.
In the mid-1990s, Dublin was nothing short of a war zone, with a few powerful drug lords battling for control. Their most fearsome opponent was not the police but the courageous journalist Veronica Guerin (CATE BLANCHETT), who covered the crime beat with unmatched intensity. As she investigated and exposed the "pushers," balancing her home and family against her responsibility to her readers and her country, she became a national folk heroine to the people of Ireland. Based on a true story.
