I Went Down Movie Review

Rather typical Irish caper fare, with Gleeson and McDonald making an unlikely pair of rather hapless leg men, sent to fetch a guy on the run for the local gangster boss. Gleeson's veteran (yet bumbling) criminal and McDonald's victim of circumstance make for some amusing and memorable moments, but the circuitous plot is so roundabout that one scene rarely seems to have any bearing on the previous one. Plot-wise, the movie has a lot to learn, but some of its comic moments are simply priceless.
