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

Product Description

United Kingdom released, Blu-Ray/Region A/B/C DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), English ( Dolby DTS-HD Master Audio ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (2.35:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Blu-Ray & DVD Combo, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: This privately-funded little film 'Cleanskin' starring Sean Bean, Charlotte Rampling, James Fox and Michelle Ryan takes the standard 'lone vigiliante tasked by MI5 to take out a domestic terror cell' story (as described in this wonderfully misleading trailer) and flip it on its head. Sean Bean stars as the lone vigilante, Charlotte Rampling his controller. It was a very strange film to watch because slowly, like a prolongued water torture scene, you realise ... you realise that this film's playing with your mind. The good guys are painted bad. The bad guys are painted a vague editorial colour to suit the film's ulterior motive. ...Cleanskin ( Clean skin ) (Blu-Ray & DVD Combo) (Blu-Ray)

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
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
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
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Clearskin 4 Jun 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
What a load of old rubbish.
One dimensional plot with bare bones of a supporting cast. Cheap production badly written written with confusing ending.
What a waste of my time thinking this would get anywhere.
Pretty pointless film IMHO.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pawns 7 Sep 2013
This is a symmetrical film where a jihadi terror cell and its counter-terror counterpart (two ferocious hitmen) struggle through the politics and scheming of their respective controllers. Very little is as it appears as the two groups move towards a climax that does not occur where one might expect. You will need to keep your wits about you. Lots of good acting and some real attention to the reasons both sides have for what they do. The film is violent in a coldly believable fashion (no guns with 50 round magazines, or bullets that leave no wounds). If the Bond reboot seeks to bring home the image of the stone killer this goes one further. Excellent cast and use of location.

3.0 out of 5 stars Above Average Modern Brit Action Flick 25 Jan 2013
By Tim Kidner TOP 500 REVIEWER
There are many reviews up here, on Amazon, from rubbish to brilliant.

Sean Bean IS Bean (Sean, not the Mr Bean, that's briefly seen on TV) and that's not a bad thing - you know what you are getting with him and here he delivers. Charlotte Rampling adds gravitas and class as a top MI6 boss, though she doesn't have much screen time.

The violence is where it needs to be, story-wise and very well done. Strong, to the point, it pulls no punches but is fairly restrained in its quantity. The London locations make it very real to us Brits and whilst a little 'TV Episode-ish' at times (Spooks has been uttered, more than once) this is a quality, extra-length feature episode.

The story, about Muslims living in London and terrorist cells is both relevant and of course, controversial and everyone will have their own opinion and stance on this and so I'm not 'going there'. However, in comparison to those TV dramas mentioned before, this one seems a lot more complete and sensical and thus, more satisfying, overall.

However, the star has to be almost unknown writer/director Hadi Hajaig. I could find almost nothing about him on IMDb, but that source estimated the film's budget as a mere £2 million. That might sound a lot to you and me, but it really is peanuts, especially when filming in - and over - one of the most expensive cities in the world - and for a 105 min feature film and decent cast, with a couple of real stars, too. At no time did I feel the direction lacking, a bit unexceptional and ordinary, maybe but it always did what it had to. I also found the music suitably rousing/poignant, too.

I saw this on Sky Movies and whilst it was good overall, both the subject matter (a bit grizzly, to be honest) and that it didn't scream 'watch me again' suggests that this is a good rental or TV watch - and thus 3.5 stars.
