Movie Review by Movie Addict
July 22nd, 2008

Which side do you think Allah's on?

Favorite Movie Quote: "Can we dial down the boobies?"

An excellent look at the differences between the Islamic terrorists and Americans, and how we are also so much the same.

The movie really started slowly, but that is what happens in all relationships. It took time for Agent Fleury (Jaime Foxx) to get close to Colonel Farris (Ashraf Barhom) and get the things they wanted. They had to establish that they were professionals looking to end this madness.

The rest of the team was also great. I love anything Chris Cooper does, Jennifer Garner was super, and Jason Bateman was great as the reluctant member of the team.

Damon Schmidt (Jeremy Piven) was a typical a**hole bureaucrat, and I loved it when he almost lost it.

Then the action really started with some magnificent stunt work. When the convoy moves down the freeway, and an SUV rear ends a Mercedes that explodes, setting off a multi car crash including cannon rolls, T-bones and pyrotechnics, you were just glued to your seat. Even Zoe Bell (Grindhouse) was in on the action. A great chase, and real action at the end.

But, let us not forget that it will really never end.
