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

This film is very interesting!
6 March 2008 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I have no idea why there was such a vindictive review of this film, Technically it's really well done and I thought the writing was clever and interesting. The story flows well from the real-life hypocrisies of politics and shows how insurgency is born of it. The only reason I can see for giving this film a poor rating is if you disagree with its politics or are uneducated enough to view the plot in an unrealistic light. If you are fascinated by revolutions and insurgencies and you're brain can handle anti-American sentiment in a rational light then you will enjoy this film. It would make an EXCELLENT teaching aide for a contemporary US political science course.
