Critic Reviews for Able Danger
No excerpt available.
Modeled on noir and executed on acid, Able Danger is a paranoid fantasy of geek superheroics that lunges desperately for political relevance.
Able Danger's various generic elements and ambitions, while successful on their own, resist melding into a successful pastiche.
More than just a self-referential lark, Able Danger tells a smart, inventive story.
Paul Krik's stylish, darkly comic conspiracy thriller takes its title from a classified military program alleged to have identified four 9/11 hijackers prior to the terrorist attacks, and borrows its gleaming B&W look from The Maltese Falcon.
Audience Reviews for Able Danger
Strange and sometimes dull story of the indie thriller film with unknown actors & actresses.
This Movie is smart. Amazing really what's been done here. Paul Krik has taken on a taboo topic that has never been dealt with in the context of a narrative film. I love films like the Bourne series, but why can't more filmmakers take on topics that actually have a basis in reality? Is it because their hollywood financial backers won't let them touch taboo subjects like 9/11 conspiracy? That's what I love about this film. It is so fiercely independent. It could never be done in the hollywood system. And yet classic film is referenced and reemployed to create a perfect neo-noir pitch. Perhaps it's just because I love Elina Lowensohn so much but her performance harkens back to golden age of cinema. And Adam Nee is a great talent, I'm sure we'll be seeing more of him once this film reaches the cult status it deserves.
