Kevin Spacey stars as Dublin crime boss Michael Lynch, in a film that is loosely based on the life of that of Martin Cahill, the famous criminal mastermind known as The General. Like Cahill, Lynch is one hell of a charming crime lord and pretty much becomes a hero to the people of Dublin, however there is one detective who becomes increasingly obsessed with bringing his criminal career to an end... and that's the least of his problems. Also look out for Colin Farrell and actresses Linda Fiorentino and Helen Baxendale too.
