Storyline

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. Written by Patrick Henry

What a waste of time
10 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really wanted to like this movie. There was some really good pints made in it about how our government has hijacked our freedoms and how violence is the only way to wake up the people.

Of course, we also had to listen to some dopey conspiracy theory nonsense about 9/11, too. But, that's the price you pay listening to insurgents The pace was incredibly slow, and the only welcome distraction during all the talking was topless Ukrainian Juliette Marquis. I imagine she is off to be tortured in Uzbekistan about now.

The ending really sucked big time. Can't tell you without spoiling it, but it's not worth waiting for.
