      Ed Travis Cinapse Taffin... goes down so smoothly and satisfyingly. It feels exactly like reading a Jack Reacher novel, where you know the hero is going to come out on top, and you know the villains are underestimating our hero, and that's all part of the fun.

      Steve D Fairly entertaining thanks to the cast. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/04/23 Full Review jelisije j A simple story about how one man must protect the city that shuns him and must do necessary evil in order to stop a greater evil from destroying his small town. A good old fashioned movie. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member It's the English version of Roadhouse with Pierce Brosnan. One man gang against corruption and bullys. A loner who is eventually turned on by those who hired him. Oh, and the woman who tries to change him. Very formulaic, but entertaining. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Local fixer in smaller Irish community gets called upon to help stop a corporation from building a chemical plant in the town's sports field. I liked Brosnan's character's understated toughness in this one and never strays too over the top. If you have problems with debt collection, call Taffin. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Not a great storyline and hard to believe in places. Pierce Brosnan plays his usual self. Taffin seems pretty hard for someone who does business in office with no doors or windows, drives an open top American car in rainy Ireland (that magically fixes itself by the next scene) and yeah, he's pretty slim for a guy that drinks so much stout and drives home afterwards. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member WELL MAYBE YOU SHOULDN'T BE LIVING HEEEERE! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
