Neil Jordan's biopic of one of the leading figures in the IRA in the early years of the 20th Century portrays him as a complex figure, but certainly a hero who, having inspired republicans to use violence to bring about a united Ireland, eventually emerged as a committed peace-maker. Some argued that this offers a distorted, simplified version of the true story, but whether or not it represents a reliable history lesson it's a stirring, thrilling film.
