Miss FlickChick

A tediously earnest, well-intentioned and scrupulously even handed [topical thriller], in the style of made-for-TV problem movies.

Earnest problem-drama about a Muslim police inspector in London investigating fellow cops' killing of a suspected terrorist.

Jam! Movies

The taut, ultimately explosive drama shows most of its dramatic cards too early, but it boasts two memorable performances.

Shoot on Sight has good intentions but winds up a thematically simplistic, dryly plotted and perfunctorily shot melodrama, one of those movies where dialogue is there to categorize people, not parse the complexities of human beings.

A veteran London police in spector who's a devout Mus lim is intriguingly at the center of Jag Mundhra's Shoot on Sight, which starts out as a thriller inspired by that city's 2005 Tube and bus bombings but gets bogged down in a family soap opera.

John P. McCarthy
Boxoffice Magazine

Takes its title from a real standing police order issued after the attacks and, seemingly, its inspiration from both nighttime soaps like EastEnders and the PBS Mystery! series.

Movies that pressure audiences into such extreme moral choices veer too close for comfort away from drama and towards their own set of ideological imperatives, in the service of propaganda.

Marrying small-screen formula to big-screen actors, Shoot on Sight is an earnest melodrama that struggles to surmount its good intentions.
