Editorial Reviews

London is rocked by a shocking terrorist bombing in this dramatic thriller starring Michelle Williams (Wendy and Lucy, Brokeback Mountain) and Ewan McGregor, (Trainspotting, the Star Wars trilogy). Williams delivers a riveting and heart-felt performance as a young wife and mother who suffers a devastating loss in the attack...which occurs while she's meeting her secret lover (McGregor). Wracked with guilt and trying to piece her shattered life back together, she becomes embroiled in the police investigation of the attack - and discovers that the authorities will do anything to cover up the terrifying truth behind it..

Customer Reviews

The acting is solid, the direction good, and the cinematography is excellent.

I've heard the book is better (well, it can't be worse) which is why I think the movie was so confusing in parts - I mean, is the son there or not?
Ultimate Reviewer
It is a dialogue driven film but there are some strong audio moments like the stadium explosion and these scenes are bewidering to view.

I hate to admit I was tricked into ordering as many as I did because of the description, trailer and preliminary "thriller" reviews. I'll make this a two part review to be as fair as possible, one part on the mis-marketing and the other on the Blu-Ray product (small spoilers).

The story covers loads of grief, emotions and loss as a woman (Michelle Williams) loses her son and husband in a major terrorist explosion in London. Coincidentally, she is having a tryst (with Ewan McGregor) whilst her family is killed. With extensive flashbacks of her son, coupled together with three other distinct story lines, we get spattered with some bad writing and abbreviated conclusions.

Marketing: The trailer shows the only 80 seconds of activity in the whole film (outside of the sex scene). Case description: "...and discovers the authorities will do anything to cover up the terrifying truth behind it." Once you watch the film you realize how incorrect that statement is. Between being pushed as a thriller and my customers thinking it would be a conspiracy/semi-action film, I think one's expectations should be a little different as to alleviate any disappointment. There is lots of melancholy, sadness, beach footage, regret and a 1000 memorial blimps - not much else.

The Blu looked crisp, but very little color gets used. The clarity did show a variety of errors, including blatant crew reflections in vehicles (not brief either) and the CGI failings during the one stadium sequence. The DTS gets used best during the explosion sequence but not much else except some classical music mix. No extras to speak of, except a brief photo gallery of cast and crew.

"Incendiary" is not only a unique and wonderful story, its captivating!

I'm happy to see at least a few good reviews here, because the movie does'nt seem to be that well known, yet.

While on vacation this past week, I rented a slew of movies, "Reservation Road", "Defiance", "He's Just Not That Into You", "Doubt" along with "Incendiary". All those other movies were good, but they were exactly what I was expecting them to be. "Incendiary" was one of the last movies I watched and it turned out to be the best. In fact it was one of the best movies I've seen in awhile and I watch alot of movies.

I wasn't completely sold on Michele Willams, but Ewan McGregor drew me in and his role ended up being a rather small one. It's a great movie with alot of heart and raw emotion in it, Michelle Williams is the main focus of the movie and she doesn't disappoint.

This is another one of those movies that has a slow build up and it just keeps building up until the climax.

"Incendiary" is based off the book by Chris Cleave, which was originally released right around or on the same day as the July 7th, 2005 London subway terrorist attacks. Follow this link to the book- Incendiary

Highly recommended movie!!

I watched this movie twice I loved it so much. When I first selected it, I thought it would be another terrorist movie and just needed something mindless to watch while I waited for time to pass...boy was I surprised! This is an excellent movie, give it a try you won't be disappointed. Michelle Williams is beyond fantastic.

This film is based loosely on the novel Incendiary by Chris Cleave. The film is well done but not great. The book is able to explore class conflicts and is full of dark humor whereas the film emphasizes the romantic quest of Jasper Black and Terrance Butcher for the heroine's affections. Michelle Williams displays her considerable acting talents as a mother and wife who loses both her husband and child in a terrorist bombing in London. But we see that it was not a totally satisfying marriage since her husband is emotionally distant from her. Her husband works on the police bomb squad and is a bomb himself since he is emotionally suppressed and non-communicative with his wife, leaving her in a state of anxiety that she finds can be relieved by sexual trysts with men she meets in local pubs. It is the loss of her child that is defeating her, destroying her emotional balance, and Williams plays the part very well. But as she recovers two very different men begin to court her, even though she continually has flashbacks of the bombing and thus spends much time and energy trying to stop both men from becoming attached to her. She meets a smooth operator in Jasper Black, a newspaper editorial writer. She is also courted by Terrance Butcher, her husband's supervisor's supervisor in the police department and the head of anti-terrorism efforts. The film gives us several references to the great fire in London and to the bombings during World War II. The character played by Michelle Williams is very resilient, even exploring the family of one of the terrorist and empathizing with the 10 year old son of the terrorist. Parallel to the theme of terrorism is a romantic theme of two men trying to court the same woman and the stakes get pretty nasty.Read more ›
