Samir Horn is a former soldier, a devout Muslim, and U.S. citizen in the Middle East selling bomb detonators to Islamic radicals. He joins their cause as both the FBI and a rogue CIA agent track him. Horn escapes a Yemeni prison, goes underground in France where he proves his abilities, and is sent to the United States to choreograph a simultaneous and multiple terror attack. Will the intelligence agencies talk to each other, and can Horn be stopped?Written by
In the prison yard when Samir is supposedly praying he ignores the guy threatening him and then when Omar comes in he's still in the prayer position but when the other guys leave he just walks away with Omar not completing his prayer. Samir was ignoring the guy; trying to continue his prayer normally, but then he decided to cut his prayer unfinished when Omar came and started talking to the guy. It is OK to do that if necessary. He can pray later. Standing in that position does not mean that he is still praying. See more »

This is an excellent movie. This was evident by the fact that while the movie was playing the audience stayed absolutely quiet. Usually when a movie is a clunker the audience starts fidgeting and becomes restless. This movie kept the audience's attention. The star of this movie was Guy Pearce who gives a compelling performance as a government operative. Of course, Don Cheadle gives another excellent performance, this time playing a character whose loyalty is put to the test under the strangest circumstances. The story immediately grabs the audience's attention and dramatizes the dynamics and issues relating to the government's response to terrorism and provides an interesting take on the challenges associated with police work and undercover infiltration.
