...an entertaining and thought-provoking drama...
... a clumsy polemic that bounces between the boundaries of stage-play debate and torture porn spectacle as everyone argues over ethics...
A routine thriller about finding the usual obligatory hidden bomb (ok! ok! so it's an atom bomb!) in time is given some serious teeth with the question of how far we might be willing to go in order to fight extremism. Me likey, even though the characters are often little more than simply cut-outs. The arguing over whether or not to torture or not gets to feel stagey at times, but the overall production makes its point and we have a darntootin' good time along the way. Michael Sheen is the glue that holds it all together.
An intense thriller that is thought provoking. But it's sloppy handle leaves more to be desired!
An intense, hard-boiled and mind-blowing edge of your seat thriller. A powerful and astonishing film. It's a timely, stunning and relentlessly exciting film that should not be missed. A film that's as real and gut-wrenching as it is shockingly entertaining. It's solidly well-crafted and superbly performed. A ticking clock cat and mouse ride that's razor-sharp and utterly suspenseful from start to finish. An excellent film. This is one explosive and heart-pounding ride that commands your attention and has a vicious and cold message. Samuel L. Jackson gives one of the most mesmerizing and unforgettable performances of his career, its right up there with Black Snake Moan and Pulp Fiction. Jackson is a pure knockout, you will not want to take your eyes off him. Carrie-Ann Moss is outstanding, she brings as much strength to to her character as she does emotional vulnerability. Michael Sheen is brilliant, he acts with fire and riveting energy that truly explodes in this film.
Where do we draw the line for what's justified to do, when extracting information from a suspected terrorist? Brilliantly exploring this very complex question, this highly intense drama faces us against ourselves, as we are obliged to consider our true position on the fundaments of human rights. It may be easy to say that pain-inflicting interrogation forms are wrong in their very essence, but what if that person holds information that could save a million lives or more? Or what if he was one of the perpetrators behind a terrorist act that killed someone you knew? Would you still say no to the implementation of torture? No matter your answer to that, you can be sure that this movie will have you fully involved. Michael Sheen, who keeps growing on me as an actor with every movie I see him in, delivers a raw, enthralling and emotionally powerful performance, as a sly and unyielding muslim terrorist. It's a very up-close sort of film, that for the most part takes place in the interrogation room. But it's precisely that level of focus that makes us fully invested into the characters. Samuel L. Jackson is exceptional in one of the leads, and provides an intimidating anti-thesis to the solicitous FBI agent played by Carrie-Anne Moss. Not easily digested stuff, but if you can manage its discomforts, this is well worth taking the time to see. A riveting morality tale, of great contemporary and intellectual worth.
