Resurrection Man

Resurrection Man ★★ 1997 (R)

Sociopath Victor Kelly (Townsend) is in his element in 1975's Belfast when he's recruited to lead a group of Loyalist killers known as the “Resurrection Men.” The gang's violence draws the attention of journalist Ryan (Nesbitt), who makes them media stars, and local cop Ferguson (Thompson), who wants to bring them down. Soon, though, Victor's capacity for bloodshed begins to worry older hood, McLure (McGinley), who thinks they'll all be better off without Victor. Very creepy atmosphere sustained by some appalling violence. Based on the novel by McNa- mee, who also wrote the screenplay. 100m/C VHS .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
