There's a lovely frisson between Bean and Rampling that makes you think what James Bond and M could be.

The film certainly has ambition and there are some memorable fight scenes, but it also lacks the extra oomph that could have done for Bean's action-movie career what Taken did for Liam Neeson's.

It's perhaps one credibility-straining twist too many for the film, which up until then does a solid job of aping slicker, bigger-budgeted Hollywood thrillers.

The ambition is laudable even if the execution isn't as smooth or detailed as it might have been.
March 15, 2012
A slick action drama with a strong cast, including Tuppence Middleton, Charlotte Rampling and Michelle Ryan, that delivers in terms of violence, gunplay and conspiracy thrills.

March 11, 2012
It's a competent, conventional thriller, but there's something suspiciously unbalanced going on here.
March 8, 2012
With a better script editor, this could have been a character-piece comparable, maybe, to Showtime's Homeland.

March 7, 2012
Trashily enjoyable thriller that puts its low budget to impressive use and scrapes a pass thanks to strong performances and some bone-crunching action scenes...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 6, 2012
A brutal, unsparing thriller, if a little on the long side.

As a rather far-fetched work of faction, Cleanskin left me feeling rather grubby about the world that we live in - and not entertained.

You couldn't ever accuse Hadi Hajaig's film of being one-sided: it has two, both of them stupid.

March 8, 2012
As if we don't have enough gullible folk believing 7/7 and 9/11 conspiracy theories already, this poor thriller comes along to popularise the paranoia.

Cleanskin has Charlotte Rampling dying, spiritually at least, on a bench. It can be contagious.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 8, 2012
It plays like a lad-mag fantasy of counterterrorist work, juxtaposing mediocre action sscenes with a lot of deadly serious Islamist rhetoric.

Could have been a British 24 but is undone by terrible plotting, implausibility and lack of excitement.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 7, 2012
At times, it's almost as funny as Four Lions. The trouble is, it's not meant to be comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 6, 2012
Plodding, somewhat misbegotten, and never slick enough to sweep us along.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
