When the Sky Falls

"Grim"

When the Sky Falls Review


The sad tale of Irish journalist Sinead Hamilton (Joan Allen; fictionalized from the 1996 true story of Veronica Guerin) is certainly a tragic one, but don't tell me you didn't see this coming. After being brutalized and shot while on the hunt for the leaders of a local drug ring, of course they're going to rub her out. Brutally violent, there is remarkably little story wrapped around the numerous murders in the film, as Hamilton dutifully marches toward her doom.
