I worked hard at giving this movie a chance. I thought it had potential. Clearly it was low budget but some of the best movies have been produced under such constraints. I agree with many of the reviews I have already read, so I wont repeat all. It proved slow and they could have discussed the ongoing context that the characters found themselves in as it progressed. The acting was collectively poor and at times it had the feel of a sixth-form production

About half way through the movie, the guys with the power were HQ carving out strategy. On the walls there were various charts and maps etched out in grey and black. The left most one was of northern Europe, showing GB, other major European countries and islands such as the Faroes and Sheltands. The island of Ireland however was represented as a six county Northern Ireland, with Donegal to the north west removed along with the other 25 counties of the Republic to the south of border. Now this may be great news for many, as those in Fermanagh and Armagh may find that they now are in possession of acres of Altantic facing coastal property.

I don't recall anything in the plot that explained how the nuclear blast surgically removed all parts of Ireland outwith British colonial control? What inspired this? Ignorance? Was it premeditated? Did one of the directors feel so strongly about the Republic of Ireland that he felt it was best dissolved into the sea? Was a Brexiteer in charge of this? Has Leo Varadkar simply gone too far?
