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 »

Only one person acted in this movie
25 May 2013 | by margotsaitesSee all my reviews

This movie could have been good.

I loved Ben Kingsley in it. He was the only person who acted.

At first I thought the actors were actually trying to look stilted and awkward and were purposely trying to deliver their lines in that horrible manner. It felt like they were literally reading their lines from the script....

I soon learned, no, they were just all bad actors... apart from Ben K that is...

Very disappointing.

The story itself was great though.

This could have been a much better movie.
