Cleanskin: Ewan (Sean Bean) is a British Secret Service Agent faced with the task of pursuing and eliminating a British born Asian suicide bomber Ash (Abhin Galeya) and his terrorist cell, whilst Ash wrestles with his conscience and reflects on his journey to terrorism.Written by
The film's title, "Cleanskin," can have two different meanings. It can either refer to an undercover operative unknown to his intended targets, or it can refer to an extremist who is unknown to the security services, as he or she has had no previous convictions. See more »
(at around 46 mins) Ash is in a white van with his accomplice. Just after Ash says "follow them" the scene switches briefly to the side of the van. You can see the tripod, camera and crew in the reflection of the white van. See more »
I fought over there, to stop this from happening here
again. Didn't stop, they're not going to stop, neither will I. I'm going to find everyone of them, and send them to the death they pray for.

A friend of mine borrowed me his DVD of this film. It started off well, had some great action scenes throughout and finished excellently (a nod to a famous death perhaps?).
It amazes me that a film of just £2m can produce such a twisty-turny story with some easily recognisable British actors. The stand out for me was an unknown actor (Tom Burke) who plays Sean Bean's sidekick.
I also couldn't help thinking about 7/7 throughout. Also, I see the beheading scene (which we DON'T see to all the blood lovers out there!) was similar to a story from Birmingham a few years back (which thankfully was stopped in time).
I would recommend it.
