Worthwhile
8 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting much from this - after all it is almost a duologue, albeit with 3 main characters, if that makes sense. However I found myself getting quite gripped by the story, and the duologue between Ayesha and Rick is quite superb.

Although clearly partisan the script is subtle and we can sympathize with both the aforementioned characters, though perhaps not with the callous 'Doc'. The message is quite clear, whichever side you take. It manages to demonstrate an aspect of the 'war on terror' that we perhaps know too little about and which many find distasteful, but without preaching a simple 'good versus bad' sermon.

Walker and Masoudi are mesmerizing in their portrayal of two characters who come from opposite ends of what many see as a definitive good or bad spectrum, filling in some of the grey areas that many overlook. The simple and understated twist at the end is brilliant, and says in one short scene what 10000 words could not portray effectively.

It's not a horror story so don't watch it for that, nor is it really a mystery. It's a powerful and thought-provoking drama from an excellent writer.
