"Mickey Rourke (Sin City, The Wrestler, Angel Heart, Iron Man 2) gives ""his finest performance to date"" (L.A. Weekly) in this hair-trigger action-thriller co-starring Bob Hoskins (Enemy at the Gates, The Long Good Friday, Super Mario, Who Framed Roger Rabbit), Alan Bates (The Sum of All Fears, Gosford Park, The Mothman Prophecies) and Liam Neeson (Schindler’s List, Kinsey, The A-Team). A gritty tale of retribution and redemption, A Prayer for the Dying has ""a brisk style and an edgy rhythm"" (The New York Times) that will keep your heart racing in suspense until the final frame!
Tormented IRA revolutionary Martin Fallon (Rourke) wants out of the endless cycle of violence and bloodshed. Unfortunately, the price for his freedom is to perform one last murder for a ruthless mobster (Bates). As the vicious world he's trying to escape closes in on him, Fallon's only hope for salvation... may be the man he's been ordered to kill. Mike Hodges (Flash Gordon, Get Carter) nimbly directs this adaptation of the Jack Higgins thriller with Sammi Davis (Four Rooms, TV’s Homefront), Christopher Fulford (Scoop, Eye See You), Leonard Termo (Ed Wood, Godzilla), Alison Doody (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, A View to Kill, Major League II) and Camille Couduri (King Ralph, TV’s Sinchronicity) rounding out the cast."
