Product Description

Ewan (Sean Bean), a burnt out secret service agent must pursue and eliminate a deadly suicide bomber and dismantle a terrorist cell that is wreaking havoc on the streets of London before they strike again.


A down-and-dirty action flick with a surprisingly melancholy sting in its tail, this streamlined thriller stands as a commendable example of how a B movie can successfully smuggle in deeper themes without losing a step. Based loosely on actual events, the story follows a ruthless Secret Service agent (Sean Bean) with a personal stake in hunting down a series of London-based Islamic terrorists. While recovering from a botched bodyguard assignment, Bean is tasked by his superiors (James Fox and a Sahara-dry Charlotte Rampling) to take down a squad of suicide bombers, by any means necessary. From there, the story skips back in time to show how a young cell member (Abhin Galeya) is transformed from an idealistic student into a man with a terrifyingly single-minded mission. Writer-director Hadi Hajaig manages an uneasy balancing act throughout, well illustrating the elements that lead average people to tragic extremes, without ever glorifying the results of their actions. (The film's title refers to an extremist with no prior connections to terrorist activities.) The narrative's thoughtful lack of gloss also extends to Bean's character, whose brute-force tactics end up deepening as many problems as they solve. By the time both sides inevitably collide, the differences between black and white have long been obliterated. In a time of indestructible heroes and post-gunfight quips, Hajaig's film comes as a welcome, terrifically acted rarity: a relentless shoot-'em-up that keeps you thinking long after the endorphin rush has worn off. --Andrew Wright

Customer Reviews

The acting was good.
It doesn't serve to "make one think" much either so I can't even give it credit for trying to be a message movie, which it clearly was trying to be.
This is not a terrible movie but for me it needed to move quicker to keep me wondering what will happen next.

Truthfully, I'd give any movie with Sean Bean in it a chance and that was a primary point of interest in checking out Hadi Hajaig's "Cleanskin." Include the marvelous Charlotte Rampling, and it's an added bonus that's hard to resist. "Cleanskin" is yet another British action film that examines the effects of terrorism on domestic soil. There have been so many films and TV shows on this subject, it might well be impossible to offer up anything new. "Cleanskin," from a plotting standpoint, certainly isn't breaking the mold you've come to expect. It opens with a bold action sequence, obvious budget constraints, and sketchy character development. After about thirty minutes, I'd almost written it off as unimaginative and completely routine. But the uneven tone of the opening slowly starts to settle itself into a groove and the picture begins to get progressively better. Credit must be given to Bean. He doesn't have a lot of shading, but his relentless brutality is riveting. Even better, though, is Abhin Galeya. Galeya, as the terrorist, is given the story's most complex arc and really paints a compelling foe who is surprisingly identifiable.

Bean is an undercover operative within the British Secret Service. On assignment, he loses some explosives in a violent heist. His disappointed superiors (Rampling and James Fox) task him to right the situation, still keeping the entire operation off the books. Bean is single-minded and uncompromising. With a new partner, he'll do whatever it takes to achieve mission goals. In addition to this story, we also meet Galeya and (through flashbacks) we see how he developed into a violent extremist.

I picked up an advanced copy and thought it was going to be a typical British movie which I do not like. I was pleasantly surprised how very good it was.

The story is interesting. It had plenty of twists and turns that kept me interested throughout keeping your interest up until the end. Some of the story, I thought could have used some work, for example, a fundamentalist Muslim cleric is unlikely to be too excited about going to his boy birthday party. If he did, he would not mention it publicly. The scene, however, is important as it shows the attitude the cleric has to his disciple. To the people that organise suicide bombers, these people are a weapon, not people. Some of the other scenes on recruitment to Islamic terrorism seemed a bit too simple - Hollywoodish. Still overall it was well done. It showed a young muslim guy looking for something and how he gets drawn to terrorism.

The acting was good. The characters are interesting. I did like the fighting scenes too. They were much more realistic then what movies often now days of a young skinny woman who takes on he-man and wins.

I would recommend it.

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.

Format: DVD
There appears to be a trend in the film industry to explore the concept of terrorism from both sides. This insightful film addresses this very concept of sharing with the audience the factors behind what encourages men to terrorist acts, especially those of suicide bombers who by their actions work with the concept that in carrying out such bombings to kill infidels they gain immediate access into Paradise with the concomitant virgins and joining deceased family and friends.

The title holds some clues as to the film's direction: `A `cleanskin' is a term for an undercover operative unknown to his or her targets, or, as more commonly used in the UK following the London bombings, an extremist with no previous convictions so therefore unknown to national security.' A strangely quiet man named simply Ewan (Sean Bean) is a rather ruthless British Secret Service Agent who with his partner Mark (Tom Burke) is directed by his superiors Charlotte (Charlotte Rampling) and Scott (James Fox), and faced with the task of pursuing and eliminating a British born Muslim suicide bomber Ash (Abhin Galeya) and his terrorist cell directed by Nabil (Peter Polycarpou). The complexities of misinformation and unnecessary murders and the use of flashbacks and flash forwards to help the viewer understand the motivations of each of the characters gives us a better view of the conflicted personalities of all involved. The process of pursuing the capture and the perpetration of the terrorist activity is full of surprising twists and turns and the resolution is entirely unexpected.
