Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: Be sure to watch "The Wind That Shakes The Barley" if you watch "Michael Collins"

- Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Fresh: Neil Jordan uses very broad and movie-ish strokes to paint his portrait of the busy, eponymous hero.

4 stars

Accurate, but slow going -- Very good performance by Liam Neeson

3 stars

Makes for a better entertainment than a history lesson; episodic but effective.
