Critic Reviews for A Prayer for the Dying
A ludicrous movie about a subject that deserves more serious treatment.
Mickey Rourke's performance is key in buying the story, whose gestures and look are prolonged in his peculiar Irish intonation and accent. [Full Review in Spanish]
It is almost inexplicable how dull and sodden a melodrama A Prayer for the Dying -- about an IRA terrorist in London -- manages to be.
The good intentions seem frivolous and what starts out to be a study of a senseless violence in Northern Ireland ends in a senseless study of troubled personalities.
Muses on the difficulty once violent men have in ridding themselves of the mark of Cain.
Audience Reviews for A Prayer for the Dying
This above average thriller is rife with ludicrous performances and ripe in symbolism, even down to the blind girl Mickey Rourke falls for. Almost worth it for Bob Hoskins as a priest beating someone over the head with a dustbin lid!
