The film takes place in Ireland, not very long after the Easter Rising in 1916. It's about the Irish

struggle for freedom. They no longer want to be part of England.

The film starts with Collins fighting in a post office during the 1916 Easter uprising against the

British. They are defeated and put in jail. We watch as Collins, upon his release from prison, sets

about the task of ensuring a republican victory in the next round of confrontation with the British.

Collins and Boland are best friends as well as comrades they share all with each other and even

share the love of a woman named Kitty. She took care of them after a battle, and that's how they

met. Later she becomes Collins fiancée.

Collins developed new methods to fight the British by organizing the Irish Republican Army. In the

process he created an army.

On the Bloody Sunday the IRA assassinated 19 British citizens in cold

blood on the streets of Dublin.

It's incredible to see people fight for their freedom and the way they sacrifice themselves for each

other. It's also interesting to see how a force as small as IRA could crack the British and the way

they did it, by using Guerrilla warfare.In my opinion this film is very exciting, because of the

action scenes.
