Cleanskin: Ewan (Sean Bean) is a British Secret Service Agent faced with the task of pursuing and eliminating a British born Asian suicide bomber Ash (Abhin Galeya) and his terrorist cell, whilst Ash wrestles with his conscience and reflects on his journey to terrorism. Written by
The film's title, "Cleanskin," can have two different meanings. It can either refer to an undercover operative unknown to his intended targets, or it can refer to an extremist who is unknown to the security services, as he or she has had no previous convictions. See more »
(at around 46 mins) Ash is in a white van with his accomplice. Just after Ash says "follow them" the scene switches briefly to the side of the van. You can see the tripod, camera and crew in the reflection of the white van. See more »
The American forefathers fought the British, beat them hands down, and now what are they? They're the biggest superpower on this planet. Why? Because violence is the supreme authority all authorities derive their power and legitimacy from. Law is completely irrelevant in the face of true force. That applies to any country.

For me, Sean (aka 'Ewan') puts on a fantastic performance, in a film where I was also very impressed with Peter Polycarpou (aka 'Nabil'). The romance between Ash and Kate felt very believable, not all actors/actresses can pull this job off.
It was a film that touches on a very serious subject, so for all you rom-com addicts, prob not one for you, lol! However, although a serious topic, you'll find some light hearted humour in parts of the film.
Have already recommended to friends and family, purchased on DVD myself, so go and watch too if you already haven't.
Overall, a great watch with some excellent action shots and twists and turns throughout.
