Storyline

Three young Muslim men, part of a terror cell, are making a bomb in a London flat, when they get a call to vacate immediately with their gear. The police have been alerted and they are under suspicion. Asif, Shahid and Mushtaq grab suitcases, the computer, and a cardboard box containing bomb making equipment and bolt out the door. Shahid's getaway car is clamped so the three are forced to escape on foot from the pursuing police. Cornered, they dive into a restaurant on a busy city street. It is the Olympus Grill and dinner is being served to its well-heeled clientele. With the police outside, Asif, Shahid and Mushtaq have nowhere to go. Mushtaq, thinking quickly, declares that they will hold the restaurant goers hostage. The diners are forced to get up from their tables where they have been enjoying the delicious Greek cuisine. They are lined up against a wall. Electra, the young waitress, is also forced to stand in line. Her mother, who is the restaurant owner, comes out from the ... Written by Inspired Movies

Has the look and feel of a made for TV drama
6 May 2007 | by (Roanoke, Va USA) – See all my reviews

First the positive The movie opens like a real thriller, with some good action shots with a pace and score that that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

The cast all do a good job with their roles, the dialog and story line are credible for the most part. The score moves along well with the scenes.

On the down side the overall look and feel of this movie puts it squarely in the made for TV drama category. There are no real surprises. The action is quickly toned down to family prime viewing level and the drama level increases proportionately.

This, IMO, is not a bad movie but it doesn't offer the kind of entertainment value you would expect from a big screen film. It will do well on TV on both sides of the pond.
