Goofs

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 »

This is a copy of movie "A Wednesday" which is an Hindi movie released in 2008 and 100 time better than this awful combination of production, direction, editing and acting.
30 July 2013 | by hoathjunaidSee all my reviews

The reason im rating this movie awful is that i have seen the original movie by which is in Hindi and was released in 2008. This is simply a English version of the movie "A Wednesday" which is one of the best movie's i have seen. The only reason i picked this movie to watch was because of Ben kingsley and i am very much disappointed and never expected such poor performance from him. I recommend everyone to watch "A Wednesday" with subtitile you maybe also find that on youtube.

This movie is awful in its every aspect either its the direction, production, editing, and above all the acting. When people copy something i would expect that to be a better version, improved one. This is just an awful movie and waste of time, i again recommend to watch the original movie "A Wednesday http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1280558/?ref_=fn_al_tt_4 ".
