Trespass Against Us

Three-time Golden Globe nominee Brendan Gleeson (The Guard) and two-time Oscar nominee Michael Fassbender (12 Years a Slave) are outlaw father and son in this crime drama, set in an anarchic corner of Britain’s richest countryside.

Chad Cutler (Fassbender) is heir apparent to his bruising criminal father, Colby (Gleeson) and has been groomed to spend his life hunting, thieving and tormenting the police. But with his own son Tyson (Georgie Smith) coming of age, Chad soon finds himself locked in a battle with his father for the future of his young family.

When Colby learns of Chad’s designs for another life, he sets out to tie his son and grandson into the archaic order that has bound the Cutler family for generations. He engineers a spectacular piece of criminal business involving a heist, a high-speed car chase and a manhunt, which leaves Chad bruised and bloodied and with his very freedom at stake. With the law cracking down and his father tightening his grip, Chad is forced into increasingly desperate measures.

As a thief trying to break away from his criminal father, Michael Fassbender can't act his way out of this pile of grungy nonsense.

Though thematically vague, thinly plotted and without a reliably sympathetic soul to cling to, the movie has a mutinous energy and an absurd, knockabout charm; even its violence is more quirky than brutal.

Moments of excitement don't make up for what is ultimately a slow burn study of characters that aren't nearly as interesting as the movie thinks they are.

Some smart, deft writing, and a series of car and foot chase set pieces that constantly out do themselves for inventiveness and flat-out entertainment value.

Dynamic storytelling and powerful performances bring out the pathos in an unusual tale of conflicting loyalties set on the criminal edges of a travelling community.

Elements of this crime drama/family saga are good - in particular, performances from two of Ireland's finest actors, Michael Fassbender and Brendan Gleeson - but as a whole it fails to make a lasting impact.

"Trespass Against Us" plays like the quirky indie-fication of the family gangster movie, its scrappiness overlaid with a patina of we're-all-in-this-together slickness.

The movie doesn't play on the tension between these two moods so much as tread water between them, unsure what it wants to do to the audience.

Adam Smith wastes his talented leads on a standard family crime drama we've seen plenty of times before.
