Fifty Dead Men Walking (2008)

A young lad from west Belfast in the late 1980s who is recruited by the British Police to spy on the IRA.

Fast-paced and well-made Northern Ireland thriller that does manage to avoid political bias, but is not so careful considering facts (the Good Friday Agreement was signed in 1998 and not in 2007 as mentioned in the epilogue).

Maltin**: "Taut, fact-based account...Both a well-made thriller and a character study of McGartland and the impact his informing has on his life."
