For a price.

DublinMovies tweetz:

BREAKING NEWS – Dragon’s Den cleaner Gerry Deegan announces run for #Aras18 . “Being around the Dragons has inspired me” said the 45-year-old Dubliner. “I realise they’ve made a few quid and that qualifies them to be president, but I’m looking to clean up the country”.

He has the Vim, in fairness.

When disgraced Garda Bryan ‘Brian’ O’Brien (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) finds himself trapped in Áras an Uachtaráin after militant bankrupt builder ‘Big’ Jim McMenaminmin (Brendan Gleeson) holds the place to siege, it’s up to him to save the president (Finnoula Flanagan). Armed only with a Garda issue Uzi machine gun and his wits, O’Brien has to contend with McMenaminmin’s tooled-up workforce and the machinations of an oily Junior Minister (Domhnall Gleeson) whipping the media into a frenzy. Co-starring Liam Cunningham as the Garda Commissioner, Charlene McKenna as Bryan’s sassy love interest and Brian Gleeson as Squeebag, Kick Aras reminds us, once and for all, that NOBODY fools with the guards.

Too much Gleeson?

Not enough Gleeson?

YOU decide.
