I was expecting a proper production, how wrong I was.

It actually made me angry, a missed opportunity, it more or less trivialised that era in our history.


I would urge people not to go to the cinema to view this farse, watch online for free and make your own judgment on this steaming pile of shit.

And Rambo (Feeney) was played by an Aussie, no wonder his accent was so bad. Surely be to Jaysus they could have got an Irish actor for the part as it wouldn’t have been hard to play.

He didn't speak any English in the movie iirc, easier to get away with it that way.

Didn't know he was from OZ, the yanks are gonna love this movie though.

The past should not be forgotten but to subscribe to the Evil brits starving the Irish narrative is only bollocks that is believed by the feeble minded
Interesting... I don't remember calling it genocide. Doesn't matter what you call it anyway, if you starve a dog to death while you have adequate food you'd be arrested. What they did was worse, akin to taking food from their starving dog's bowl and feeding it to their neighbour's fat dog.

It might not meet definition of Genocide but it was definitely gross criminal intentional neglect at the same scale and having much same effect as genocide.

Not too sure what the definition of genocide is but if you allow 1 million Irish to starve to death while allowing the food in the country to be exported to feed the British and at the same time prevent the importation of cheap corn into Ireland from America by the punitive Corn laws, I am sure that this must be genocide in some form or other.
