From Amazon.co.uk

A film that’s utterly anchored by a terrific central performance from Sean Bean, Cleanskin is a gritty British thriller, dealing with a sensitive subject. Bean’s character is a secret service agent, one who is tracking down a terrorist cell in the UK, but the film also devotes a good chunk of time to one of the terrorists, too. That focus is trained on Ash, played by Abhin Galeya, who finds himself persuaded into terrorism, and inevitably on a collision path with Bean. Cleanskin then builds things up on different sides of the law, before its inevitable climax.

It’s a brave and well-handled film at its best, too. There’s the odd tonal problem, where the deathly serious drama at the heart of the story is sacrificed for a less deathly serious action sequence, but there’s a real commitment here to tell the story well. Bean, too, is excellent, dragging the film through its weaker moments, and proving once more what a compelling screen presence he is.

It’s a pity that the disc’s extra features don’t dig too much deeper into the complex subject matter, although you do get some behind the scenes material to complement the main feature. And, the presentation of the movie is terrific, too.

Cleanskin is a divisive film, though, courtesy of the subject decisions it’s not afraid to make. In spite of its flaws, it’s a compelling piece of cinema, that overcomes its tight budget to present something both interesting and engaging. No easy feat. --Jon Foster

Format:DVD
A small British thriller that looks at the hard issue of extremist terrorism in the current world.

What could have been controversial is handled surprisingly well, as both sides are given screen time, and some justification, although clearly terrorism is not justified, the film does at least attempt to show how young men may be led astray to do suicide bombings.

Shot stylishly with cold London landscapes, and also filmed with a no holds barred approach to violence, this is gritty film making.

Sean Bean as the vengeful ex soldier on the trail of the would be terrorists is brutal and aggressive (Right up there with his performance in the Nick Love film Outlaw), and when he's on screen it's hard not to take notice added with an emotional element to his character that drives him it's a great performance.

The script is surprisingly intelligent, handling a sensitive subject, and the action, which is perhaps the wrong way to term the film, is brutal, but this is no Hollywood blockbuster, so it's contained to a few brutal gun shoot outs and some very, very brutal fights, that are filmed with urgency of a Bourne film.

In terms of look and style, it came across as a mixture of the BBC tv series Spooks, a little bit of Bourne, and with it's political/religious debates, may be the Bruce Willis/Denzel Washington film The Siege.

A film that shows low budget, does not mean film making skills have to drop to a lower standard.

Well recommended, just don't expect non stop action.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard-edged mix of espionage and extremism 24 April 2012
By Rowena Hoseason HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This gritty Brit flick doesn't feature flashy car chases or helicopter chaos. There's minimal explosions and a contained bodycount. This isn't a Hollywood blockbuster. It's a thoughtful, thought-provoking thriller; shot at street level, gritty and violent, in a bleak and barren current-day London

Cleanskin features a sterling performance from Sean Bean as a hard-man undercover agent. He's well matched by his opposite number, Abhin Galeya, who plays Ash, a radicalised British Muslim man. There are two other stand-out turns; one of them especially spine-chilling when an experienced Middle Eastern activist comes to the UK to wreck a little revenge and show the home-grown `freedom fighters' what will be required of them in the long run. The following scenes would make anyone flinch and demonstrate not just a determination to be ready to die for a cause, nor to kill those who are perceived to be involved, but to follow the path of violence to its inevitable end.
Paced as an action-thriller, Cleanskin uses flashbacks to skilfully develop its underlying themes. It shows the emotional manipulation of the agents on each side of the conflict. Most are motivated by grief and revenge, unable to let go of the grievance and so perpetuating the violence. The protagonists exude angry nationalism and repressed rage - but the film doesn't dwell too long on them, and wraps its arguments around a fairly standard, solid plot familiar from every `who can you trust' espionage-thriller.
It does hit a few off notes -- the Muslim cleric who radicalises his flock is something of a cliché -- but the subplot involving Ash's English girlfriend is gripping. We understand more of his motivation watching her drunken university years through is eyes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film 11 July 2012
Format:DVD
Great film based in London, about an MI5 agent/team and a terrorist cell. You can see how the cell starts, as the film goes back in time. It's "Spooks" but in a film format, and without all the gadget wizardry!!!

Sean Bean makes the film, worth a look. It's not James Bond, this "could happen" today, which is worrying!

4.0 out of 5 stars Clever & well acted 15 July 2012
Format:DVD
This was a great film. Atmospheric & dark. I did have to go back & watch a couple of scenes as I'd missed an important part of the plotline that made the ending confusing on first watch, but whn I'd made sense of that it proved to be a very satisfying experience. Sean Bean is Sean Bean as one of the main characters but is perfect for the moody role. I paid under a tenner for this & felt it was a good buy & I shall probably watch the whole film through again in a couple of months time.

4.0 out of 5 stars IT'S IN MY NATURE, 23 Jun 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Terrorist are able to steal some plastic explosives from British Intelligence. The British have placed a tracer in the Semtex explosives. When a terrorist uses the explosives, Charlotte Rampling (Charlotte McQueen) of the agency asks agent Ewan (Sean Bean) to do whatever is necessary to find the terrorists, even going beyond standard protocol. Mark (Tom Burke) will be his young assistant.

Meanwhile, we do get to see our terrorist in a subplot. It starts six years ago and goes into his indoctrination and transformation. The film let's us see the conflict within the Muslim community as those who see the west as evil, those who destroy and rape their culture. And then there are those who admire the west for its freedom and opportunities it affords people of all religions.

This is one of the better British crime/drama/thrillers I have seen, primarily because they have imitated American films and have stopped trying to do them the British way with quirky humor and characters that didn't fit the rest of the script. Americans like their crime heroes to have above human qualities. Sean Bean gives us the rogue agent we love. Good script. Good acting. Action, mystery, drama, and the usual twist. 4 1/2 stars.

PARENTAL GUIDE: F-bomb, sex, and nudity (Tuppence Middleton).
