After seeing this masterpiece i was in tears. What a brilliant woman she was. Unfortunately I missed it in the cinemas, I saw the trailer on Pay TV and thought "that sounds like a good movie" having no idea it was a true story. I'm glad that justice was dune and the people that killed Veronica got the jail time that they deserved and that the people that she was writing about got what they deserved. So her murder wasn't too much of a waste, Her family has that at least. The casting was great Cate Blanchet looks a lot like the real Veronica Guerin and the movie was well written. I hope that her son grows up knowing what a great woman she was.

Cate is such a good actress! Love the way she portrayed the character of this movie. Hope she will get an award for this role... Good luck in the golden globe and Academy Awards!
A superb film which appears to be a very accurate rendition of a true story which was in all the newspapers in 1996 (I remember it ...). Also, for once, a film which treats death as a tragedy and not a statistic (Stalin!). I think this is the most emotionally powerful film I have ever seen. It certainly made both me and my wife cry profusely - I guess it may not affect all viewers so strongly that way, but we have a young child ourselves which certainly affects our emotional response on some of the issues dealt with here.
Brilliantly acted, well paced, perfectly filmed technically as you'd expect from a Jerry Bruckheimer production (frankly I was amazed to see that on the credits at the end - I missed his name at the beginning as I was late coming into the film). Astonishingly it completely resisted the temptation to 'Hollywoodise' the story in the usual way (with mawkish dialogue and fake emotion) which vastly increased the impact of the true drama and power of the story.
So all kudos, then, to Bruckheimer and his production crew for tackling a current social issue, and not taking the standard 'Hollywood' approach to it, but instead projecting an accurate portrayal of life as it really is in parts of Ireland today. Bravo for avoiding any hint of 'Oirishness' (think of Waking Ned Devine for a prime example of that). Bow down before la Blanchett for her Irish accent which never faltered, although I must grudgingly concede that in one or two places she didn't sound entirely like a journalist - but maybe she was not supposed to.
Undoubtedly 10/10 and the best film of the year so far.
(It's been an evening of surprises - apart from the pleasant shock of seeing Bruckheimer's name in the end credits, I noticed 4 people walked out of the cinema after 10 minutes - maybe it was not what they were expecting but this is unmistakeably a good film.)
