After the disastrous defeat of Irish rebels by superior UK forces during the Easter Rising, Michael Collins develops new strategies for the independence of Ireland. His tactics include what is now recognized as urban guerrilla tactics and organized assassinations of those Irish who work as informers for the UK government, and later members of British intelligence. Although Collins is conflicted about the necessity of this violent course, by 1921 the British are willing to negotiate. Sinn Fein President Eamon de Valera sends a reluctant Collins to London to negotiate a settlement. When Collins returns with a compromise of a partitioned Ireland and an Irish Free State, not a Republic, within the British Empire he is vilified by de Valera and repudiated by lifelong friend Harry Boland after Boland learns that his girlfriend Kitty Kiernan is in love with Collins . Collins is now faced with civil war as he struggles against those who insist on complete and unconditional independence for all of Ireland.... Show more

This is truely top class movie and I really love it. I will grant that my expectations were very low before seeing it... Michael Collins got everything what a movie should have, I'm sure everyone who watch full movie will enjoy it. It wasn't easy to leave the cinema, when I saw it first time. The script is not the only advantage - the film is played very well, especially by the main character. Michael Collins is a a very story, but it has a lot to offer to the watcher. Play the movie right now, don't waste your time.... Show more
