You could say this was simply a run-of-the-mill movie about a boy and his racing dog. In reality it is, but there are some heart warming moments mixed with a smattering of violence. Thank heavens for subtitles is all I can say so that I was able to decipher the broad Irish accents. Tyrone McKenna, who apparently isn't even listed on BA, plays his part well and the whole film is set among the Irish troubles and against the sweeping Irish countryside. Possibly the characters are a bit cardboard with the boy accepting 'O' - what name is that? - (Robert Carlyle) rather quickly as his long lost father with no questions asked. The kennel owner, Good Joe, a real baddy with no redeeming features. But it's light and fluffy so I can forgive the fact Tyrone isn't even interviewed directly on the DVD extras. Interesting to note that when the father engages his son in some friendly talk the boy asks if he's a 'bum bandit'. What a sign of the times!
