no subtitles - not comprehensible
- Cardboard Gangsters review by bm
Warning - no subtitles on this movie. So unless you are fluent in fast rambled heavy Irish dialect you will understand very little of the spoken word. What a shame.

Cardboard yes, gangsters no!
- Cardboard Gangsters review by TE
This looks like an extended student movie short. Violence of pretty much every kind is queasily relished.
Shouty young men with awful haircuts make the mistake of taking on fighty older men with awful teeth. Yawn.
The main problem, however, is that there is not one single character who is in any way likeable or sympathetic. I suspect that we are meant to empathise a little with the central character, a pudgy-faced thug who is actually the worst of the lot.
