Hidden Agenda Review

"You can't bring home the bacon until you kill the pig!" Brian Cox's firey performance is about the only thing worth noting in this -- yet another IRA vs. England drama, perhaps the most overdone genre of film out there. Taking place mostly in various back rooms and parlors, an investigation into the murder of an American civil rights attorney visiting Belfast exposes corruption in the government (shocker!), yadda yadda yadda. How high does the conspiracy go? Who cares? I just want some bacon.

Made in 1990, it feels and looks like it's from 1980. Frances McDormand is an especially snoozy disappointment in a woefully miscast role.
