3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 29 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cleanskin DVD [2012] (DVD)
I bought this DVD because Sean Bean was featured in the leading role, and Bean normally has presence that shines from the screen. Not here, he doesn't get the chance.
This flick is not much more than a mess of mindless violence hung loosely on a weak plot about Muslim terrorists confronted by a lunatic security service. It takes place in a London apparently devoid of police officers. That said, there are some fine cameo roles; and perhaps with a little sharper writing and editing, not to forget better direction, might have been something more than a run of the mill B movie.
It is a good example of the weakness inherent in one man writing, producing and directing a film. The absence of clashing temperaments constricts vision, and blunts the edge that might have been honed by criticism, a weakness shared by other propaganda films.
It also suffers from the current fashion of male actors wearing a four day growth of beard, which I would have thought somewhat outre by now.
Teenagers will probably love it.
