Just watching it on 'Movies4Men'(Sky325)
It's about a young IRA man who turns informant when caught i a assasination attempt.Timothy Dalton plays a 'Special Branch' RUC man who's ccent goes from southern Irish to Scots!It looks like the the Army regiment is the RRF.
Anyone else seen it?
 
Yes, it was on TV here a few years ago. It's based on a novel called Field of Blood by Gerald Seymour.

yep, a not bad attempt to tell a story about NI. Bit concerned about the chaps bowling around in Kevlars with IW's in the early 80's (story is set late 1982) but apart from that - a good effort.

does he still get blown up by the motorbike helmet bomb at the end in the film then? or is that just the book.
