I love Brad Pitt so this was a good movie.

Anybody who has Irish blood in their veins in America is still concerned with the crisis in the "troubles" of Northern Ireland and the barbarity of what England has done. This was a pertinent statement near the date of the Good Friday Accord and the changes since then (or the lack of changes.) In a similar vein, Brad Pitt sporting an awkward but genuine Irish brogue fights the British tans and the Ulster militia in a particular bloody battle wherein he has to go to America--the true home of the immigrant, especially of the Irishman. The Donegal Irishman, the most fierce breed among his ethnicity, meets a friend and begins to make weapons with a not-so-swell character and jeopardizes the lives of his uncle's kids in the process. The uncle cop must take the matter into his own hands, as the Irish are known to, and kills his nephew. Beautiful music.

Is that the only freakin thing that Pitt says in the Devil's Own? It seems like everytime he's on screen he says that again. His performance stinks and was meant for a real character actor like Geoffrey Rush. The film is great in every other aspect and it's mainly the great dialogue and Ford's performance as a "strive for the best" cop that keep it at that. I recommend this for anyone who likes a good action/Ford film.

I just bought this movie on VHS for 99 cents from a video store and it was well worth the money! I hadn't seen it and I took a gamble and it was cool. Brad Pitt is a great actor and he proves that again with this. Harrison Ford is also great on the screen. I'd recommened it to anyone who likes these two actors.
