Takes too long to get going! 3/10
31 January 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Review: This movie seemed to have a very glum undertone which doesn't change throughout. Its based around an MI5 agent who suspects a UK citizen of plotting a terrorist attack. After spending some time pieces his evidence together, he finally gets the help from his agency to track the suspect down. Once they finally find the suspect, they try there utmost to get a confession, but he just won't budge. I was expecting some twists and turns throughout the movie but it just seems to go down one road which becomes boring after a while. In most of the scenes, your watching the agent looking lost and confused, without much help from anyone else. The ending made the English intelligence service look really bad because it showed that there were more worried about there reputation than protecting there country, which isn't a good message to put in a movie. Average!

Round-Up: David Oyelowo isn't a household name yet but he has started in some big movies. From Selma, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Interstellar and Jack Reacher, he can afford to do low budget movies which have a deep message, like this one. The main fault that I found with the film was the slow pace and the fact that it seemed to go round in circles. Arsher Ali, who plays the suspect, has recently been in the Missing series, which got high reviews, but he's yet to blown up on the movie scene. I personally think that this movie needed some other interesting character to make the investigating more intense and dramatic. Its based around 2 characters who will stand up to there beliefs, against all odds, but it didn't show how far they were truly willing to go. With such a deep subject matter, the director should have done a better job.

I recommend this movie to people who are into their English dramas based around a MI5 agent whose trying to get a terrorist suspect to admit to his crimes. 3/10
