America before the twin towers had an eye for the terrorist cells. Now it can’t do it in quite as accurately violent a manner as here.
However, that doesn’t make this a good watch. In fact this is a dull outing for Denzel and friends who move through a script that’s trying to be all conspiracies and stereotypes wrapped up in one, gritty, bodies-and-all picture.
Doesn’t work and ends up with too much going on that doesn’t add up, with the final schmaltz being Denzel as the big hero against the monster of American government. Even though he’s FBI.
Not worth the trudge although Denzel is obviously still very good, just a bit wasted here.
