Overview

A policeman plays Good Samaritan to a visitor from Ireland, only to discover that he has a potentially deadly secret. Belfast-born Frankie McGuire Brad Pitt saw his father gunned down by enemy soldiers at the age of eight, and when he grew up he joined the Irish Republican Army, determined that one day his father's death would be avenged. An especially ruthless "volunteer," Frankie is responsible for the death of 13 British soldiers and 11 policemen. After a particularly bloody battle, Frankie sails to the United States in a ragged tugboat he has restored; with a huge bundle of cash, Frankie intends to buy a stock of Stinger missiles from an underground arms dealer in America, Billy Burke Treat Williams. Upon arrival in New York, Frankie is met by a judge who is sympathetic to the IRA's cause and who arranges a place for him to stay. Using the name Rory Devaney, Frankie moves into the home of Tom O'Meara Harrison Ford, a scrupulously honest cop. Tom is already in the midst of a personal crisis; his friend and partner Edwin Diaz Ruben Blades recently shot a man that he knew was unarmed in the line of duty, and while Edwin wants Tom to help him cover up the matter, Tom's conscience will not allow it. When Tom begins to realize that "Rory" is not simply a man running from the violence of his homeland, he's torn between his sympathy for Frankie's tragic childhood and his desire to see justice served and prevent needless death in Ireland.

    For the Love of the Irish

    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.

    Ford Delivers and Pitt sucks: Aye.

    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.

    A good 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.
