Once upon a time, it was the Americans who were terrorists to the British.
Who is Samir Horn (Don Cheadle)? The FBI wants to know that too, especially after a visit from Agents Clayton (Guy Pearce) and Archer (Neal McDonough). Is he an opportunist selling weapons to the highest bidder? Or, is he something more? Maybe he is a plant by some US agency. We really don’t know.
While Homeland Security is tracking down a bomb threat in the US, Horn is involved with Muslim extremist overseas. The interesting thing about this is that we visit the motivations behind the extremists in reaction to the American presence in the Middle East, and the racial profiling and religious prejudice in the US.
Cheadle is perfect for this role. he presents as a truly converted and religious man who only wants to serve Allah. Is it all an act? The tension is ratcheted up as the massive and ambitious operation in the US is set in motion. Will he make it happen or stop it? Will they catch him in time? Saïd Taghmaoui as Omar was also excellent, as was Pearce. The tension never lets up as the mission comes to the end.
A great thriller that gives us insight into both sides.
Good Post 9-11 Era Thriller
This film examines Islamo-Terrorism from Al- Qaeda’s perspective in a very interesting manner and without moral equivalence between US interests & those of the terrorists. There is some US bashing on the part of the terrorists but it doesn’t crowd out or ruin the larger story. There are good guys & bad guys, with shades of gray in between. Yet the story is a compelling one and Don Cheadle gives an Oscar worthy performance in the lead role as a terrorist/traitor. He has a strong supporting cast, including Guy Peirce, as the lead FBI agent tracking him down, Neal McDonough (from HBO’s Band of Brothers”) assisting Peirce, Jeff Daniels as an intelligence contractor with a shady persona, and many others, all excellent.
The plot is complicated and I won’t spend a lot of time re-hashing the movie. The movie begins in the 1970’s with the Don Cheadle character as a young boy in Sudan, fast forwards to present day Yemen, with Cheadle grown up and making a weapons sale to Al Qaeda (or the terrorist group, the film never explicitly mentions Al Qaeda), and the location switches between Yemen, London, Paris, and Chicago. The main terrorist plot involves mass bombings in the US of passenger buses, all to be detonated at the same time, for maximum impact.
This is definitely worth seeing. It’s a good action thriller that also provides some realistic international perspective sorely lacking in most of today’s spy movies.
