Lots More on The Mighty Celt
Posted at 10:19 AM (PDT) on Tuesday, August 23, 2005

From Film 247.net:

The cast are remarkable; Stott gives all little boys nightmares with his performance of the amusingly nicknamed Good Joe. Anderson proves once again that her acting talents are far beyond her famous TV role. Carlyle is wonderful, but is overshadowed by the young McKenna who seems to have taken to acting like a duck to water (or perhaps greyhound to racetrack?) and steals the film. ...the film is very touching and during the racing scenes, I couldn’t help but exclaim "Go Mighty Celt! Go!"

Thanks xfrgg and Wendy!


From the Zreview.co.uk:

Extremely strong performances from the entire cast bring this to life. McKenna is terrific as Donal--edgy and tenacious, someone we like and want to cheer for. Nothing quite prepares us for Anderson's feisty turn as a skinny, working-class Irish mum. And Carlyle is perfectly cast as the charming man with a mysterious past. Stott has the thankless role as the guy who becomes darkly jealous and then vicious for no obvious reason. This cliche undermines the film somewhat, as does the structure of the race sequences (do we have any doubt what will happen?). And the frightening violence will be a bit much for young viewers. But it's a strong, engaging film that's well worth a look.
