Critic Reviews for Infinite Justice
Clumsily shoehorns every hot topic under the sun into a digitally shot drama of high aims, middling production values and low intelligence.
Jamil Dehlavi's film is well-intentioned but simple-minded, and the clunking script does more to muddy the issues than to elucidate them.
film is technically impressive, doing much with little, but there was a curious aspect to it that left an odd taste.
Shot on location in London, New York and Karachi, Infinite Justice uses an impressively broad canvas to paint a picture of dangerous fundamentalism and Western opportunism and corruption.
Shooting on digital video, Dehlavi moves confidently between the different time-frames and countries. There is, however, a schematic dimension to the screenplay, with individual characters representing a particular political perspective.
The heart of the film is the verbal sparring (and extended chess match) between Silverman and his captor Kamal Khan (Raza Jaffrey, neatly encapsulating the ongoing debate about terrorism and its causes.
This attempt to understand the radicalisation of Muslims means well. But it feels more like a TV-movie with its dumbed down discussion of conflitcing idealogies and the melodramatic humanity of the relationship between the prisoner and his gaoler.
