An Intelligent, Thought-Provoking, Stark Movie..
8 August 2011 | by realeaglescoutSee all my reviews

I also agree that the British seem do this genre well. The principal actor did a fine job a very good job..earned every dollar. Another character's premises that the war on terrorism is all about GOD (guns,oil and drugs), used to keep people in control and in fear for economic reasons, is most likely, reality. Yet what I found most interesting was how how accurately the movie depicts the real present day London as an extremely somber, soul-sucking urban far-scape.. IMHO, it all sucks; the food, the atmosphere, everything..Woof. Sorry! And this treatment certainly rams that home. The shootout at the climax was a chilling, honestly portrayed rendition of violence, spot on... I found it to be a sad, uncomfortable, yet thought provoking and extremely entertaining movie. Job well done!
