Blanchett nearly saves it, but it's too much a plastic-Jesus biopic.

Blanchett gets the accent impeccably, and encompasses both the woman's determined heroism and her delight in the picture byline, but neither she nor the screenplay digs any deeper than secular hagiography.

While this is a movie that deserves a mildly favourable recommendation, it's also nothing short of a catastrophic fumble and an incredible lost opportunity.

While I was watching Veronica Guerin, starring Cate Blanchett, I kept imagining the movie it might have been before director Joel Schumacher and producer Jerry Bruckheimer got their hands on it.

Cate Blanchett gives a tour de force performance as Veronica Guerin under Joel Schumacher's direction of a no-nonsense script by Carol Doyle and Mary Agnes Donoghue.

You don't need subtlety for a movie like this -- which is fortunate considering that Schumacher is the director -- but you need a kind of craft that Schumacher doesn't possess.
