Consensus: It has interesting characters and a strong cast, but Perrier's Bounty ultimately fails to do anything original with them.

John Anderson

An uneven mix of conventional caper and sentimental hooey, but there's no denying a certain quotient of fun.

Movie Talk

At times, O'Rowe and Fitzgibbon appear to be straining too hard for effect, but at its best the film has a cartoonish vitality. The plot may be all over the place, but the cast relish O'Rowe's salty dialogue

A hectic, ultraviolent romp that is inordinately pleased with its own sardonic nihilism.

James Verniere
Boston Herald

A bit of underworld blarney from the Old Sod, "Perrier's Bounty" is another darkly comical-philosophical Irish gangster movie. The film, directed by TV veteran Ian Fitzgibbon and scripted by Mark O'Rowe ("Boy A"), doesn't quite work.
