This managed to bypass a UK cinema release, although I'm sure Gregor Jordan is well-used to his films being plagued with problems getting onto the big screen by now.
I rented it mainly because the cast (Sam Jackson, Carrie-Anne Moss, Michael Sheen) seemed interesting. I didn't realise it was a thriller with aspirations to debate government-sanctioned torture which, at best, it does clumsily.
Where it's engaging it's mainly down to Jackson and Sheen; Moss in particular is saddled with crappy as-the-plot-demands motivation and dialogue. A bit like an over-extended 24 episode, without Jack Bauer to convince us it's "all for the best".
