Headrush is a crime comedy about two disillusioned youths, struggling through a haze of cannabis, who hope to solve all their problems by smuggling a consignement of drugs for a local gangster. It's set in the present day in Dublin, Ireland against the backdrop of the end of the Celtic Tiger: the bursting of the bubble of this economy boom that's supposed to have done wonders for us all.

Wusses and Hard-Asses
14 July 2004 | by guevaradavidSee all my reviews

Honoring the tradition of independent movies this is a rather refreshing movie! Though, probably not intended, Dublin's bleak day-to-day existence gets driven home: Boy this is a godforsaken place!

When a looser gets dumped for being a looser, he tries to better his life. But before this gets accomplished he needs to overcome lots of difficulty: hilarious 'opponents', not-so-stupid cops, hard-ass gangsters in drags, an infuriatingly stupid best friend and last but not least world-class hilarious situations.

Though 'Train Spotting' and 'Lock Stock and Two Blazing Barrels' come to mind, this film certainly stands its own right. A must see!!
