Overview

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Joel Schumacher take on the real-life story of an assassinated Irish journalist in the dramatic thriller Veronica Guerin. Cate Blanchett appears as the title character, a relentless crime reporter for The Sunday Independent during the early '90s. Guerin's violent murder in 1996 led to a revision of Ireland's laws and the creation of the Criminal Assets Bureau. The movie picks up with her pursuit of the underground drug trade in Dublin, which she suspects is led by mobster Martin "The General" Cahill (Gerry O'Brien). When Cahill's gang is attacked, she suspects mobster Gerry "The Monk" Hutch (Alan Devine) is responsible. Not deterred by threats or gunshot wounds, she uses thug John Traynor (Ciarán Hinds) as an informer to help out her investigation of psychotic mobster John Gilligan (Gerard McSorley). Schumacher's protégé Colin Farell appears in a small role.

I've viewed this film 4 times since its release & have found it to be one of the most moving films of this new century. I wish the American release of the film had been greater. The people of this country need to see this film in light of the war on drugs. It's tragic that Ms. Guerin lost her life, but it's also compelling to all of us to take up the torch & courage against the evils of this world. Ms. Blanchett deserves an Oscar for her portrayal of Ms. Guerin. She is by far one of the outstanding actors of our time. I hope to see more films from her of this magnitude.

I saw this movie when it was released in Dublin. As an American viewing this movie and talking to people who new her, seeing the streets she worked on. It was overwhelming. I am disappointed that it did not have a bigger release in America. Cate Blanchet gives one of the finest Oscar winning performances. I recommend it to everyone. It is very intense and scary at times. I would not let anyone under 15 watch it.
