*REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS*
Avoid this film altogether, please!
Unwatchable should have been the title of this steaming pile of torture porn disguised as a political thriller, starring Samuel L Jackson, Michael Sheen and an almost unrecognizable Carrie Ann Moss. Jackson plays the on the edge H, an interrogator with a sadistic side, back and front who is tasked with breaking a radicalized American who has planted three nuclear bombs in the USA: he has charming methods of interrogation, including slicing the pinkie finger of the interviewee off and slitting his wife's throat in front of him to break him: nothing works, even when H threatens to kill the interviewee's kids.
Horrible, nasty, stomach churning piece of torture porn cinema: Bleurgh.
PS: If you care about the film (which you shouldn't) it ends with a shot of the bomb team finding and defusing the three bombs, while the camera shows us a hidden bomb which counts down to zero as the film ends.
