The Insurgents, a political thriller in the vein of Arlington Road and The Spy Who Came in From The Cold, questions about our views on terrorism by exploring what drives people to do appalling acts. The film depicts four Americans come together to build a truck bomb and plan to detonate it on a target in the U.S. Highlighting the days leading up to the event, The Insurgents is more about the motivations of the people involved than the act itself.

The reason this movie gets canned is because it is poorly acted, forced and just boring. The fact that the movie explains certain political tensions in the country doesn't make it a good movie alone. The performance here was just not very good and I don't want to go into detail I just wanted to respond to that idiot who was wondering just how this movie could be looked at in a bad way.
It's obvious that guy wasn't caught up to the rest of us. Go learn something that wasn't in a movie or on TV!
A lot of the scenes are too long for these sub-par actors and it just makes the movie that much harder to watch. That is probably the only amazing thing about this movie since it's actually quite short at around ninety minutes.
