From a transatlantic perspective, Invincible is "Bloody Brilliant". Let's Dive-In To An Irish Review



"Bloody" is a great swear word here in the UK. It doesn't get bandied about (used) so much in America and it's a shame because it's up there with my favourites.(you can already see my Irish-ness coming through). If you've ever watched any Guy Ritchie film before, you're familiar with how we use it...but most of us do NOT talk like Brad Pitt in Snatch, I assure you.
