I saw this first in the now defunct Capitol Cineplex in Cork. I was
surprised to see so many senior citizens in the cinema. The cineplex
was so scummy it had to be something special to draw them in. Some of
them might have been old enough to remember the civil war or at least
to have had a close family member killed in it. Many of them were
clearly moved by it particularly the end with its archive footage. It
is a moving film, but you have to be careful.
One should never confuse history with entertainment and this is not a
history lesson. All the major events are there, but there is a horrible
bias from the director. I don't like DeValera or what he stood for, but
what was hinted at the end in this movie is a travesty. If such a thing
is true, you have to prove it, you can't slyly hint at it. There are
other insidious things such as mortars and car-bombs which are clear
reference to the 1970s-90s Northern conflict. Such weapons did not
exist in 1916. To me this is an oblique way of implying that the Provos
are somehow the legitimate heirs of the IRA in 1916 which of course
they are not.
Despite this I enjoyed the movie a lot. The production values and
acting was so good, it really felt like a timewarp. Neil Jordan is a
great director, Neeson and Rickman are superb in their parts. Rickman
looks so much like DeValera it is uncanny. I even liked Julia Roberts.
It looks like she made a fair attempt at a Dun Laoghaire accent and of
course it sounded phony. Southside Dublin accents all sound phoney to
me anyway so I didn't mind. The best moment was the scene where Collins
starts the civil war sitting behind a howitzer aimed at the Four Courts
and fires. You can see a huge explosion and bits coming out portico. I
actually felt scared that they had damaged this famous Dublin landmark.
This won't mean much to someone from overseas, but anyone familiar with
the Four Courts and the resident lawyers (sorry "barristers") in their
eighteenth century costumes would surely enjoy firing an artillery
piece at the overpaid clowns. I wish I had a howitzer like that.
