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.

Just read up on this film, sounds pretty good. Blu ray review looks good to.

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..

Great film, bargain at this price!

£5 well spent in my book.

HOT... Have just bought the book the other day. How appropriate... Cheer OP..

Great film & price

very good movie

a true life story transfered to film very well

brings back memories of how things were in Belfast during the early part of the troubles, thankfully those days are gone

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

Thanks I'll have a look at that price!

Good film this, hard hitting story.
