4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Acting But Mysterious Plot August 3, 2009
MARTIJN (Ryan Phillippe), a Dutch pianist and friend, travels to Morocco to help start a food program for malnourished children or so he says. Within moments of his arrival Martijn and his friend are abducted on a bus by a group of terrorists, only one of them is injected with a drug, but both are imprisoned. Do you see the mystery forming already? Under threat of death, Martinj engages in a mental chess match with AHMAT (Laurence Fishburne), trying to learn his captor's true objective and avoid death. When he fails to answer the questions that his captors are asking, they begin to cut off his fingers. Since he plays piano this is very significant. The captors seem to know all about him. How do they know so much? Is it the beautiful mysterious girlfriend that he left at home? To add to the thrill and mystery of the movie Gina Torres (Fishburne's wife in real life) enters and gives an award winning performance. First she appears to sympathize with Martijn, but then she flips and is working with Ahmat. After intense interrogation, Martijn decides to give in and writes down some information on a piece of paper. I am still in the dark because the movie ended with me not knowing if he really knew nothing or did he really know something? I enjoyed the movie. The characters were very convincing and memorable. There are several unpredictable things that happen at the end. But the one thing that did not happen was to reveal to me why he was abducted and if he was a case of mistaken identity. I searched on the internet for a revelation to the ending and found none. So kudos to the writer for such mystery in a movie. How do I feel? FRUSTRATED!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ryan Phillippe Does it again December 24, 2011
By Graham
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Once again Ryan Phillippe puts out another outstanding performance. A little different to his usual this time with less of the action but the mind games and ending plot certainly make up for that

5.0 out of 5 stars Inside terrorism with a front row seat December 5, 2009
By Bubo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you want to see the types of animals that are trying to destroy civilization, here it is.

This movie is all acting, it could have been filmed on a high school stage like some of the old Bogart movies.

Not for the squeamish. You may want to eat an hour before the movie.

What would Eric Holder say?

4.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful "what is going on" film November 9, 2011
This is a suspenseful, "what is going on," "who should we believe" 2006 film. A young man who says he is from Holland is in love with a young woman who says she is from Morocco. The man leaves the woman in the US and flies to Morocco saying he is going to help feed the starving people there. He is accompanied by a guide. He and the guide are kidnapped by people dressed as Muslims. He is drugged. He wakes tied up, not knowing where he is, and sees the guide killed for making insulting remarks about Muslims. Laurence Fishburne plays the Muslim leader, but is he? He insists that the man knows certain things and wants him to tell what they are. But what are these things? Who really is the young man? Is his girl friend involved? Who is behind Fishburne? What is he really trying to find out? Why is it so important that he cuts off four of the man's fingers? The man put one million dollars in his bank account. Where did he get the money? What is it for? There is a surprise ending to this suspenseful tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Fingers March 12, 2010
While traveling to Morocco to initiate a food program of his own to help poor kids, the Dutch Martijn is kidnapped by a group of terrorists and his guide Gavin is executed in cold blood in front of him. Along the days, Martijn is tortured by a Muslin man and Aicha and looses four fingers. In the end, the truth about his travel is finally disclosed. Fishburne and Phillipe as the two main characters locked in a battle of mind and will power turn in an excellent performance, as do the supporting characters. The story starts swiftly and almost from the beginning the tension is notched up, and with each twist and turn the movie continues to question who really is the good guy in all of this, if indeed there could be one. A real psychological treat if you just enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it. August 2, 2013
By markus
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The plot was mind-bottling. Fishburne was amazing, and the music created a special atmosphere in the film. I loved how the movie switched off between the past and present. If you have not seen this movie before, don't read though it by looking through spoilers.

5.0 out of 5 stars How far are you willing to go? July 28, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
To protect your loved ones? To protect freedom? To protect millions of lives? What is the cost? How far are you willing to bend your morals or ethics? We try to give the impression of being a civilized politically correct society that can resolve conflict without the use of violence. In a perfect world that should be our perception but the world is not perfect & violence is inevitable. I'm reminded of "Marathon Man" when Dustin Hoffman is asked, "Is it safe?" Both these movies share a common thread that each seeks an answer. Not just any answer but a truthful answer. Lawrence Fishburne plays his role very well & very convincingly. One of the best movies he's acted in. The movie is fascinating & I recommend it for those who have the patience to let the story unfold
