Inspired by Martin McGartland's incredible autobiography, Fifty Dead Men Walking is the stunning new action thriller by Karl Skogland about a secret agent working undercover for British security services in Northern Ireland during the late eighties. Over the course of four years, until his betrayal and subsequent discovery, it was estimated that McGartland was responsible for saving the lives of up to fifty men.

The only undercover agent who everyone in Whitley Bay knew who he was and where he lived - not that he sought publicity god forbid anyone ever accuse him of that.

Sorry to give a bit of background - this guy was provided with a change of ID, new house etc to ensure his safety - then wrote a book appeared on radio, tv etc and ended up being shot in Whitley Bay by whoever not the most undercover of agents lets say..

a true life story transfered to film very well

Good price but crap movie. It starts off with an assasination attempt in canada when it really happened in whitley bay!!

I'm assuming this was to deflect away from where the guy was living, though I reckon that's like bolting the gate after the horse has bolted, still its not really the main part of the story.

I'd be confident the "ppl" who tried to kill him in the 80's and late 90's have read the book but doubt they'd be mislead by location info in the book or film.

Still I wouldnt like to be Martin McGartland, always having to look over his shoulder

It just makes it all seem a bit James Bond when in reality he was a petty criminal hood who joined the ira and grassed on his associates for loads of cash, not because he wanted to help queen & country.

I agree with everything but the James Bond part, but the rest is spot on
