Plot is so black and white, that you are really surprised and you will start thinking that movie is made for average joe American, who still thinks that terrorism is evil, and USA is pure goodness. Of course, terrorism should not be tolerated in any way, but still is appropriate to ask ourselves about roots of such acting.
Characters in the movie don't seem real. I did expect more. Especially because everyone is talking about this movie.
Still, even considering that movie is unrealistic and one-sided, I would at least expect some excitement and entertainment. But it's really boring. I almost fell asleep during movie. You constantly have a feeling that you saw such type of movies at least thousand times.
So my advice is, skip this movie unless you are big patriot who believes in fairy tales produced everyday by governments.
