Storyline

The Insurgents, a political thriller in the vein of Arlington Road and The Spy Who Came in From The Cold, questions about our views on terrorism by exploring what drives people to do appalling acts. The film depicts four Americans come together to build a truck bomb and plan to detonate it on a target in the U.S. Highlighting the days leading up to the event, The Insurgents is more about the motivations of the people involved than the act itself. Written by Patrick Henry

An honest look at genuine ideological radicalism
20 March 2009 | by lpindahouseSee all my reviews

This movie is basically honest about how people felt through the years of 2005-2008 (before Obama) just because "we are winning" the war in Iraq now does not mean that this movie should be thrown out as purely leftist propaganda. For lovers of conspiracy theories this movie is a treat, it shows valid points while exaggerating others but this is a movie after all. The characters are developed well while they remain simplistic, the twists in the movies are great and the way that the movie somewhat tricks you into a story of revolution and then hits you with the twists is wonderful.

I would recommend this movie to anyone especially to future generations who would like to know how half of the nation felt during the years of the prolonged Iraqi war.
