Worthy but hugely disappointing

Full credit to the film for tackling some of the moral dilemmas of modern warfare - unfortunately the good news ends there. Poor direction leads to a film lacking in tension, with contrived scenes involving many stereotypical protagonists; so lacking in tension is this film that I went to do the washing up, that being a more gripping activity. The bad news does not stop there. The casting is awful, Alan Rickman is a fine actor but falls completely flat as General Benson. Surprisingly given some of her previous roles Helen MIrren fails to inhabit the role of Colonel Powell - a more unlikely pair of high ranking military officers there has never been. If Britain's defence relies on these two officers then we are in big trouble. The politicians are laughable in their inability and the American soldiers mere facsimiles. Watch, but have low expectations.

A film about the Trolley Problem

You know that philosophical question - What if you could save five people in the path of a runaway train by switching the points, but this would lead to one person being killed? This film dramatizes that problem brilliantly.

Terrorists are preparing to strike, and we're all ready to drop a bomb on them when a sweet little girl from Central Casting wanders into the line of fire. Cue bickering, buck passing and nail biting suspense as the protagonists try to work out what to do. And this film is brilliant at asking: What would you do? Would you drop the bomb, trade one life for eighty and accept responsibility for killing an innocent? Would you wait, let the terrorists strike and cynically win the propaganda war?

The most terrifying thing about this film are the implied questions. This is just a film, it says - the protagonists are idealized Hollywood characters who genuinely want to save lives. How much worse is it in the real world, where people aren't nearly as nice? How many times has this happened this month, this week, today? And - how long before the enemy gets hold of this sort of technology?

A thought provoking, disturbing film that left me with the sense that things are going to get a lot worse before they get better.

Evil Brits

As usual, the Brits are the baddies. Hey, ho.

Other than the dripping sentimentality of the actual pilot crew, a decent film. Loved Rickman's cold put-diwn at the end, such a loss.
