Interesting film for the war on terrorism generation
10 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Even before the events of 9/11 they was always a paranoia that America was going to suffer a terrorist attack: cultural examples are Tom Clancy's novel Executive Orders, and the film The Long Kiss Goodnight. This fear included after the events of 9/11, leading more additions like 24. But these books, films and television programmes looked at the political side and the counter terrorism fight, not the ordinary people who could be cause up in it. This is where Right At Your Doors comes in, which acclaim on the festival and been critically received by people like Empire Magazine and Mark Kermode.

Opening on an seemingly ordinary day, Brad (Rory Cochrane) and Lexi (Mary McCormack) a normal couple in Los Andreas prepare for another day. Brad is an out of work musician, whilst Lexi is a career woman. However in Los Andreas a number of dirty bombs explore. Brad tries to get to downtown Los Andreas but the police, prevent him. Brad follows the advise on the radio to seal up his house, waits for help. But Lexi turns out to be a alive and locked outside her home. The couple are scared, with the US government talking extreme action because of toxic atmosphere.

Chris Goark makes a good film about on of America's biggest fears, and brings it to a ground level, and how it affects real people. Goark shows a event that causes real panic, and how people would react. The media provides little information, the authorities are unable to cope and end up not being trusted. This is a situation that forces people to stay in their homes and test their relationships. Goark also show what is a very plausible terrorist attack that could easily kill thousands of people. Goark shows he is a man with potential as a writer and director, keeping the settings and characters down to a minimum.

There is a small cast, who do a decent for the most part, but they are admittedly some times that they wobble a little. But to do at least put some effort into their performances.

This is a very worthy film with a silly low IMDb rating. If you enjoy this film then Cloverfield will also be a film of interest, and so is the fifth episode of the second series of Spooks.
