Fifty Dead Men Walking
As IRA inflitrator Martin McGartland, Sturgess reaffirms his ability to hold your attention, even when the material is pretty conventional. Though McGartland has decried the film for inaccuracies, Fifty Dead Men makes for a fairly engaging narrative of deception, betrayal, murder and mayhem. The story is predictable, but Skogland moves things along nicely, particularly when there’s real action. Kingsley never quite convinces as a British intelligence officer, but Sturgess is one to watch.
