Quotes

John McWhirter: Hey, shouldn't you be out, crackin' big stories?
Carl Smythe: Shouldn't you be out crackin' open a bottle of scotch?
John McWhirter: Wow, real subtle, Carl.
Carl Smythe: Subtle?
John McWhirter: Yeah.
Carl Smythe: You sure you know what that means, John? You should look it up, it's in the dictionary, right around the word "Sober", so you may not have seen it.
John McWhirter: Oh yeah, I've seen it. Yeah, it's right before 'Suck my dick'.

The most depressing thing about all of this is that it can probably get worse

I swear to you, that is an actual line in this. When will film-makers learn not to give audiences stuff that is so easily converted to insults about their work? I haven't watched, or even heard of, anything else by the director or writer, and suspect that their involvement in putting this thing together is the main reason it comes up short. The script could use help(the cliché-count is dangerously high, many of them appearing in the otherwise at times great dialog), especially the cheesy ending. It is an interesting and important subject that continues to be relevant today; the Israeli/Pakistani conflict. I liked the very noir-like music that was used, as well. The plot has plenty of developments, some of them surprises. Pacing isn't too bad. There is tension in this. The cast has proved talents(Madsen is underused). I like Ward; he's yet to disappoint me, and he's proved that he can be serious and funny without trying too hard. He's a tad similar to Clint Eastwood with the look and the voice(yes, that is about how far you can go in comparing them). The acting varies, but the leads are pretty good. It's unfortunate that this doesn't go above the level of being decent. I was entertained, for what it's worth. There is a bit of strong language and a little brutal violence and disturbing content in this. I recommend this to big fans of the concept or those who made it. 5/10
