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..

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving Touching Film June 3, 2009
Format:DVD
This film took me by the heart. To me this was a film about a mother's love for her son, an all consuming love. To me, it had little to do with terrorism, fidelity, or a who done it mystery. Michele Williams is stupendous in the role of the young mother - she has no name in the film, just the young mother. The cinematography is outstanding. The sound recorded perfectly. And the story line was just wonderful. I felt the young mother's pain of losing her son.

There are movies where the camera work is poor, good, or remarkable. This film is shot in that very small percentage of remarkable films. The opening sequences with the mother and her son on the beach are simply gorgeous, visually and audibly. They are flashed back many times during the film, and are so welcome. The director made the visual and sound so unique that even an out of focus view, virtually all tan; or the sound without the image; evokes the memory of that sequence. Framing is so well done. The director of photography got almost every scene on the mark - characters on the strong and weak sides of the frame, leading diagonals, color, movement - all done beautifully.

The trailer for this film is so misleading. It looks like some treatise on terrorism, infidelity, a police cover up, a terrorism mystery...the film is none of these things. In fact they are simply pretexts to better define what this mother felt. The quotes at the very end of the film (revealing them would be a spoiler for the film) are so pointed at exactly this - parenthood and a love for their child. If you are expecting what is seen in the trailer, this film will be a huge disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it...... June 7, 2009
By BJ
Format:DVD
"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!!

3.0 out of 5 stars An emotional film, a subpar Blu April 30, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprised how much I liked it. October 4, 2010
Format:Amazon Instant Video
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.
