Goofs

In the news sequence near the end of the film, one of the scrolling headlines says "Spurs win Champions League Final" and then another says "Battle for Xmas No.1 hots up". The Champions League final is always in May, so it's unlikely that the news for that day would contain anything about the Xmas No.1 See more »

Good Thriller with a Full of Action Story
13 April 2014 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

After an unsuccessful mission when a load of explosives is stolen by the terrorists Ash (Abhin Galeya) and Paul (Tariq Jordan), the British Secret Service Agent Ewan (Sean Bean) is assigned by his superior Charlotte (Charlotte Rampling) to team-up with agent Mark (Tom Burke) and hunt down the terrorist before the elections. Ash had used a bomber in a restaurant to kill many people and Ewan has a trauma in this regard since his wife died in a terrorist attempt. Ewan track Paul and Ash down and in-between he kills a Muslim in an old building believing that he would be another terrorist. All his deadly actions are covered by Charlotte team until the day he discovers a locker key hidden inside the coat that belonged to the Muslim that he killed and he discloses a web of lies and manipulation.

"Cleanskin" is a good thriller with a full of action story of terrorism and manipulation. Sean Bean is perfect in the role of an agent in disgrace that is assigned to kill the terrorists responsible for several casualties. The character Ash is very well developed in flashbacks since he was a law student, his recruitment to a terrorist cell and his training. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Cleanskin: Jogo de Interesses" ("Cleanskin": Game of Interest")
