Good Psychological Thriller!
Despite Ryan Phillipe's awful accent (as Martijn), the movie does a
good job pulling you into the world they create. It is, as advertised,
a "psychological thriller" and a bit of a mystery as you watch it
unfold and slowly flashbacks illuminate the present situation.
Laurence Fishburne is EXCELLENT and makes the movie. Phillipe does a
good job and although other characters play pivotal roles, it is really
about the two of them.
Most of the film is shot in the same location, but it never gets boring
or drags and keeps a lot of tension in most of the scenes. A real
psychological treat if you just enjoy it! Not the best movie, but
certainly a solid piece of entertainment that gets you to look at
things from a slightly different perspective than most treatments of
the subject of 'terrorism'.
