Time to get paid.

Joe (Brian Gleeson) and his junior friend Paddy (Damien Molony) work as mercenaries for Dave in Iraq. Their goal is to kidnap the daughter of a rich man. Much of the film is conversation between the two. We discover a lot of things that set us up for the final confrontations of the film which include the daughter (Sofia Boutella). Joe owes Dave while Paddy's loyalty has not been tested. First off, there is no tiger, and the "raid" consists of killing one guy watching a monitor screen. This is a psychological drama with internal conflict, being played out in Iraq. There are a lot of boring scenes of guys with heavy Irish accents engaging in "locker room" talk. I believe the twists at the end makes the film worth sitting through, you may not. Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.

Smolders but never burns.....

Tiger Raid is one of those maddening films that smolders but never burns..... Its frustrating watching this film as excellent performances are handed in by the cast. Performances made more impressive when you consider that the majority of the interaction takes place between two key characters, mostly in small enclosed spaces. There is so much potential in this film for a mercenary Middle Eastern take on a Usual Suspects meets Reservoir Dogs, hybrid mix. Sadly, the smoldering tension that builds and the questions that start to come to the surface, never ignite in a meaningful way. Instead, what is offered up, for the most part, feels nihilistic and empty. I know that's a message, in itself but it feels more than a little rhetorical, given the "money for hire killers" context. In my opinion, an admirable effort from the cast but the script leaves much to be desired. Seven out of ten from me.

Film festival fare

Two unlikable lead characters and a far-fetched plot make what might have been a taut, claustrophobic psychological thriller into something rather dull and disengaging.
