Wasted opportunity
25 January 2010 | by sergepesicSee all my reviews

We live in strange and turbulent times. The rise of terrorism in the Western world changed our lives forever. Needless to say, movie that tries to tackle this extremely complex topic is more than welcome. Sadly, " Shoot on Sight" is a wasted opportunity.The creators, apparently were'nt sure what they wanted to say.We get the usual clichés about racism and Islam, but no courage or even clear message. The movie was made very cheaply, which isn't necessarily a problem, but the shabby look, unclear artistic vision, and confusing and illogical plot made this film nothing more than average Sunday night thriller. Pity, it had way more potential.
