All mixed up

This is a film that stirs many elements into its brew but in the end it came out a bit boring. There is the home grown terrorist played by Abhin Galeya. There is the secret service man played by Sean Bean. There are the senior agents played by the woefully underused James Fox and Charlotte Rampling. There is Peter Polycarpou as a radical leader. Each one mouths clichés throughout the film so there are no surprises and it drags on fitfully to the predictable ending. There is a germ of a good film here but it never came to fruition.

The only good thing were the atmospheric shots of dear old London where the film is mostly set. And of course nice shots of a topless Tuppence Middleton, but not enough to keep one interested

like Ash and Mary

Cleanskin is a term referring to terrorists with a clean record and not on intelligence's radar. British secret agent Ewan (Sean Bean) is undercover as a bodyguard to an arms dealer. They are attacked by terrorists who steal a suitcase filled with Semtex explosives. Ewan's superior Charlotte (Charlotte Rampling) tells him to go off books and hunt down the Semtex. Public knowledge of losing the Semtex would be devastating to the Service. The terrorists led by Ash make suicide vests and launch a bombing campaign across London. In flashbacks, Ash is a westernized Muslim pursuing Mary who does recreational drugs. He is recruited by Nabil as he goes down the long path into terrorism.

Secret agent Ewan has his moments but his story is not realistic enough to be gritty. It does have a feel of Bourne but is not at that level. That part also has an unconvincing twist in the end. I actually like Ash and Mary's half of the movie more. They are star-crossed lovers and a compelling tragic love affair. Ewan's half is not quite at the same level as other bigger thrillers.

A British Secret Service Agent with a Top-Secret License to Kill

This movie essentially begins with a British Secret Service agent named "Ewan" (Sean Bean) escorting a man by the name of "Harry" (Sam Douglas) who is carrying a briefcase full of high-grade explosives. It's at this time that a couple of terrorists intercept Harry and Ewan and after a gunfight take the briefcase. Not long afterward one of the terrorists detonates a bomb inside a London café. Since the explosives used in the bombing were part of the same batch taken during Ewan's botched assignment, he is tasked by his superiors to locate and kill those responsible. His mission, however, is both top-secret and off-the-books which means that nobody other than a new partner by the name of "Mark" (Tom Burke) knows anything about it. What Ewan and Mark don't realize is that the terrorists they are chasing also have certain connections and are equally intent upon carrying out their mission as well. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a decent film which is dark and dreary in some parts but requires the viewer's full attention due to the underlying subplot revealed only at the end. And even then I felt there could have been a bit more clarification. In any case, I enjoyed this movie for the most part and I have rated it accordingly. Slightly above average.
