Did You Know?

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

In the news sequence near the end of the film, one of the scrolling headlines says "Spurs win Champions League Final" and then another says "Battle for Xmas No.1 hots up". The Champions League final is always in May, so it's unlikely that the news for that day would contain anything about the Xmas No.1 See more »

Quotes

Ash: 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.

Pulsating, gritty, controversial and memorable....
9 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I can only agree wholeheartedly with the other reviews. This is a pulsating , vibrant film that will stick in the memory for a long time and will, undoubtedly provoke muck discussion and media interest (as well as a great deal off critical acclaim). The action comes thick and fast and the film benefits from screen writing which is both economical and expansive whilst the dialogue ranges from the gritty to the poetical. Strong performances all round make this one of the thrillers of the year and a solid 9 rating on merit and for the sheer bravery to put out a film about terrorism when Oscars scream "tweeness". Catch this while you can and you wont be disappointed!
