Jack Higgins' straightforward thriller about a guilt-ridden IRA bomber forced into "one last job"

"A Prayer for the Dying" is a slow pace drama film starring Mickey Rourke, Bob Hoskins and Liam Neeson. The film itself is very slow pace, which means that those looking for straigh shoot them up type of movie are going to be very bored watching this. The story is not bad and it actually has its moments, Mickey Rourke does an excellent job in this film and actually displays a very cool lay back baddass character. Overall "A Prayer for the Dying" is a watchable film, but nothing that will really grab you in the first watch.
