Fighting with a plot.By CHardwell (7 reviews) , 11 Jan 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]This arrived and I watched it without the wife after she pooh-poohed it for being another bloke film. However I was genuinely impressed by the acting, plot and action.

Entertaining thriller.By Zebras22 (116 reviews) , 23 Jun 2013Average thriller. Well shot and directed. Sean Bean gives a decent performance in this topical film. Give it a try, you will be pleasantly suprised.
Rough justice.By Flicfan (10 reviews) , 11 May 2013Good film with Sean Bean in the lead role. Action throughout but could have done without foul language. Topical content.
Hard hitting action-dramaBy TheWatchman (749 reviews) from Suburbia , 21 Feb 2013A British film about suicide bombers in London is most likely to be too dark (and a little too much like real life) to be a mainstream success, so many people may be forgiven for never hearing about Cleanskin. Sean Bean plays a Secret Service agent on the trail of a suicide bomber cell in Britain. What could be quite a clichéd film actually turns out pretty good. Its partly divided up into two separate stories one detailing Seans quest to track down the cell and the other showing the terrorists themselves. Perhaps the best part of the film even relates to the terrorists. While Sean is your typical no-nonsense tough guy (think Liam Neeson in the Taken films), the terrorists are actually pretty well thought out characters no True Lies clichéd Arab terrorists here. It takes something pretty well written to make you have sympathy with a terrorist one minute, then be revolted by his actions the next, plus even weave in a convincing love story into the mix. I wont go into too many details about the films plot, as there are a few twists and turns you might not see coming. Just rest assured, if youre looking for a decent action/drama (with plenty of splendid shots of London from above!) then give Sean and co a go.
Watch this topical movieBy MatWalden (2 reviews) , 21 Feb 2013Good movie, very topical, keeps you guessing, worth a watch, you won't be disappointed, and this flows well, right to the end
Well acted, thought provoking but let down by the detail.By Capone1 (3 reviews) , 27 Jan 2013OK the twist was predictable. But it was well acted by all. It was nice to see both sides of the story for once. The only reason I did not give it five stars was twofold. One because of the love affair between Kate and Ash was not clear, it hinted at more than just sex but in truth that is all it seemed to be; just a diversion from the true theme of the movie. The other improvement would have been more depth of understanding Ewan (Sean Bean's character) and why he was the way he was. There were sombre moments about his wife and child but it would have been better to see why Ewan was such a scarred character. All-in-all it is worth watching but it could have been better considering that all of the actors portrayed their characters well.
