The Common Man is supposedly very intelligent, yet he makes two obvious mistakes: First, he stashes his bombs in places where they could easily be found: on a train's luggage rack, under a bus seat, and in a public trash can. Second, his headquarters on the open roof of a tall building could easily be seen by hundreds of people in the adjacent buildings. See more »

Despite B movie prod. value, its a great effort, engaging and.....Ben Kingsley and Ben Cross. You'd have to dig hard into the 45+/- years of Ben Kingsley's career to find something not worth revisiting.
its refreshing to see suspense, well paced action/editing and performances in a movie that may unfortunately escape mainstream media's radar. too many times, big budget films prey upon the audience's desires for violence, T&A and the obvious, but this one didn't.
The movie has some flaws, we've seen similar themes (its a remake too) in other big releases, and again, the prod. value is flawed, particularly dubbing. My vote of 8 stars is generous, but attention should be drawn to A Common Man.
Maybe you predict the ending, maybe not.
I consider this a nice change of pace. In fact, after viewing the film, I visited IMDb, saw one review (more or less panning A Common Man), so i chose to offer my first review. I hope my opinion is helpful to you.
