Black '47

Releasing this wknd, the plot (wiki) and trailer both look pretty intense. Set during the worst year of the Irish Famine, a former Connaught Ranger goes all Rob Roy/Wm Wallace to seek justice. I'm def seeing this one asap.

Was a good movie. Especially since a Kukri knife was one of the main features.

Kind of like Rambo and The Equalizer does 19th century Ireland.

Basically it is the same plot line followed in dozens of movies.

Bad ass ex cop, veteran, etc has his family killed or a loved on w killed, then is persecuted, then goes all payback/revenge on them.

Basically Death Wish or Rambo First Blood goes to 1847 Ireland.

But a good action escapism flick, that at the same time gives one a glimpse of a particular time of history mostly now forgotten.
