This Time He’s Dancing For His Life

at

For your direct-to-video eyes only….

“Troubled secret agent “Blackbird” abruptly retires from service and opens a luxurious nightclub in the Caribbean to escape the dark shadows of his past. An old flame arrives and reignites love in his life but she brings danger with her. ”

Blackbird (2018) Starring Michael Flatley, Nicole Evans, Eric Roberts and Patrick Bergin

John Gallen writes;

As the movie is still in post-production there;s no trailer as yet, but there is a poster (above) Independent.ie are referenced, obviously without having seen the film, on the second movie poster with the line “Michael Flatley as you have never seen him before”. Meanwhile, Donald Clarke (Irish Time film critic) has gone all biblical on it…

    Good…. god. This isn’t a wind-up and that’s not a photoshop job? I am dumbfounded

      do tell.

      Love the completely unimaginative poster – serious-looking middle-aged-verging-on-OLD-AF men (faces and weapons only) and young women (body shots)

      Will it be the new Fatal Deviation?

        1. Holden MaGroin

          I was not disappointed.

          “the fight is witnessed by a monk in a local secret kung-fu group, with mysterious links to Jimmy’s father.”

          “Loughlan arranges for henchman ‘Seagull’ to return from his successful mission in Hong Kong on a direct flight to Trim airfield”

          “The film ends with Jimmy reunited with his girlfriend and looking confidently forward to a happy and peaceful future in Trim.”

    Looks like someone has smacked Flatley in the mouth in the second poster. I’d like to see that.
    Also, the hotties in poster #2 are on fire. One can’t be too careful during this drought.

  3. Otis Blue

    Written and directed by Flatley too.

    You’d have thought he would have given Terry McMahon a shot at that.

    But the most important question is – will there be a much anticipated Lord-of-the-Dance-like musical dance sequence in it?????? I guess what I am really asking is “is this a musical?”

    Je…..sus. It is all downhill for Patrick Bergin. I thought things were bad when he was appearing in EastEnders but little did I know…

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      Whaaat? Last I saw of him was the leprechaun act with Steve Mac which was a hoot. Now you say he’s in fuppin’ Eastenders? Aw.

      1. kellma

        yup. Not sure if he is still in it. I don’t watch it myself as I like to think my life hasn’t gotten that low (yet) but I flicked onto it there a few months back and he was playing an Irish gangster in it. Had a storyline with Phil Mitchell and that blonde one that was in fair city ages ago. I just realized, that for someone who says they don’t watch soaps, I have mentioned two here…..

      1. Daisy Chainsaw

        The men are in a 1953 bete noir, the women are in a 1980s DTV action mullet film.

      only if John Ryan wears a tie with the shurt
      dangling
      like the Lord there
      with the gun

  8. The Old Boy

    For over a century, a significant proportion of the film industry has been an elaborate joke at the significant expense of the viewing public. This is hardly too far out by that dubious yardstick.

  9. Lilly

    Sweet mother, who is financing this flop? ‘An old flame arrives…’ but judging by these shots, she hadn’t been born when Flatley was manning the casting couch in Lillies.

    big shout out to michael shatley just because you can afford to pay to produce a film where youre the lead doesnt mean you should
    why did his nearest and dearest not be honest with him and tell him nobodys gonna watch this shitshow

    patrick begin was wasted in eastenders the writers couldn’t write a school play he has charisma and is sexy despite his age hope hes given some real work soon

  11. Ting-Tong

    Patrick begin was wasted in eastenders those fools couldn’t put a school play together
    he has charisma and is sexy despite his age

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      Absolutely. Used to have a big gra for the Berginmeister. I’m just shocked he’s stooped to East-fappin-get-outta-my-pub-Enders.

      1. Ting-Tong

        lol, the plot he was involved in on eastenders was off the wall and he was a bit of a joke such a waste
        thought he’d have a passionate affair with our kaff from the cafe :) or dance the light fangango with common as muck karen (yer one with all the kids from different dads)

  12. Ting-Tong

    michael shatleys nearest and dearest should have been honest with him and tell him ain’t nobody gong to watch your shitshow just because you can afford to produce your own film doesnt mean you should

  13. Seán McMahon

    I find it incredible that he didn’t think to bill the leading lady (Nicole Evans) on the poster.
