Well worth watching
21 January 2015 | by (French Alps) – See all my reviews

Low budget and sometimes lacking tempo this movie showcases a different angle to the "terrorist-theme".Was expecting the usual trivial approach but I was pleasantly surprised. "Black and white" stereotypes are replaced by more complex characters, which is refreshing. If this movie got the "Hollywood-treatment" it might be more appreciated for what it is,an attempt to show the forces behind "terrorism" and global politics. It is sad that the movie is promoted by a high-heeled heroine poster,good acting effort by female lead though. Gave it 8/10 due to the fact that it was different and deserves more viewers.Well worth viewing.
