This is a thriller. And a great one!
The movie takes a thought provoking view on a very uncomfortable subject, - without losing you along the way.
Some movie critics have claimed some of this movies aspects to be unrealistic.
But what life have taught me is, that reality dwarfs even the scariest of fantasies.
I watched the extended/full version of the movie, and the full ending made this movie one you won't forget !!
It misses the fifth star from me, because the character build up is minimal.
Maybe that was deliberate, but I would have liked to at least get to know our main charather Agent Helen Brody (Carrie-Anne Moss) a bit better, and get a glimpse into the mind of the terrorist.
Also it feels like all the money went into the design of the scenes where the interrogation takes place, leaving only a small budget for the other scenes.
And - I would have liked the movie to be 2 hours, instead of the 1 hour and 37 minutes we get.
I loved it!!
Samuel Jackson is outstanding as H. as well as Carrie ann Moss (agent helen brody)
Psychological conversation between agent brody and H. between agent brody and the terrorist yusuf
No dull moments from start till end.
must say bravo
(1) Would you torture not only an individual but their family in order to stop a bomb that could kill thousands if not millions?
(2) Is it worth giving into a demand(s) of a terrorist in order to save life's as the clock is ticking away?
(3) Where do you draw your lines and how do you determine what truly works?
Watch this movie then tell me how and if you could stop the ticking time bomb with some form of morality?
