It's kind of a weird way for a relationship to start. This great big Irishman falling for a wee small man made out of clay and his silent, long-suffering dog. But that's exactly how Brendan Gleeson wound up working on The Pirates! Band of Misfits.
Will Miller find WMD in Iraq? Will American reconstruction efforts in Baghdad go as planned in the face of growing insurgency? Of course not, but there are enough frenetic firefights to maintain a satisfying level of suspense.
Perrier's Bounty is delicious and propulsive, a film that rarely pauses to let the viewer catch his breath. It's an expert blend of thrills, laughs and jeopardy - like a strong Irish coffee with a jolt of pepper.
