    Please don't go by the ratings. I almost didn't watch the movie after i saw that the rating was low. The movie surprised me. It was interesting and action all the way. The girl was pleasant to watch and her acting was good. Apart from some minor errors here and there, this movie is definitely worth watching. The story of this film was quite new for me. It was not the same old same old terrorism stuff. Something different was provided when you come to know at the climax. The lady villain was a bit irritating. Simons acting was nice. Overall, i will recommend this movie. Enjoy!

  • Well worth watching by 8

    Low budget and sometimes lacking tempo this movie showcases a different angle to the "terrorist-theme".Was expecting the usual trivial approach but I was pleasantly surprised. "Black and white" stereotypes are replaced by more complex characters, which is refreshing. If this movie got the "Hollywood-treatment" it might be more appreciated for what it is,an attempt to show the forces behind "terrorism" and global politics. It is sad that the movie is promoted by a high-heeled heroine poster,good acting effort by female lead though. Gave it 8/10 due to the fact that it was different and deserves more viewers.Well worth viewing.
