Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Beyond the politics, beyond the headlines, and inside the hunt for terror Â? where the enemy is closer than you think. US & UK forces join to combat an intricate organization of international terrorists plotting a set of vicious attacks against the US and UK in an action-packed, edgy, tense & emotional mini-series.

Amazon.com

Broadcast on TNT in July 2004, The Grid is an ambitious, often-gripping miniseries depicting the battle against terrorism in a post-9/11 world. When a terrorist cell's sarin attack in London backfires, an unusual and sometimes-uneasy partnership is formed to anticipate and prevent the next strike. The team consists of counterterrorism analysts and agents from the National Security Council (Julianna Margulies), the FBI (Dylan McDermott), the CIA (Peter Marek), and Britain's MI-5 (Bernard Hill) and MI-6 (Jemma Redgrave). Gradually unfolding over six parts and four and a half hours, the BBC-Fox TV coproduction travels across North America, the Middle East, Europe, and Africa following not only the professional and personal lives of the "good guys," but also the terrorists' stories. Comparisons will inevitably be drawn between The Grid and 24 (especially considering the latter's terrorism story lines in seasons 2 and 3). The Grid can't compete in terms of sheer thrills, but it's a well-shot, well-cast ensemble drama with an exciting conclusion that takes place simultaneously on three continents.

The two-DVD set is supplemented by a commentary track by director Mikael Solomon and executive producer Tracey Alexander on two episodes, commentary by Margulies on specific scenes from two episodes, commentary by McDermott on specific scenes from two episodes, 13 deleted scenes, and three featurettes. --David Horiuchi

Even fundamentalists aren't necessarily radicals.

Dylan McDermot, James Remar and veteran Tom Skeritt also give a good performance.

Format: DVD
Playing like an international version of "24" , "The Grid" focuses on an international plot where terrorists plan on releasing deadly sarin nerve gas. When the sarin gas is accidentally released in a London hotel killing all the guests, an alerted ad hoc team of American and British intelligence agents try and discover who is behind the attack and what they can do to prevent further attacks. At first it appears at first that the terrorists plan on releasing the deadly gas on subways in Europe and America but as the plot thickens it appears that the subway attack plans are nothing more than a diversion. Racing against the clock to try and discover the real plans for the terrorists and the sarin nerve gas.

Featuring a top notch cast with Dylan McDermott, Julianna Margulies, Bernard hill, James Remar and Tom Skerritt, this co-production between the BBC and Fox TV for TNT may lack the consistency of "24" but it's gripping nonetheless with its international locations and international cast. The tight direction of Mikael Salomon and solid writing by Kenneth Friedman ("Bad Girls", "Cadillac Man", "Heart Like a Wheel") this four part mini-series is the perfect tonic for those who like thrillers and need a break from all the reality programming on TV.

Image quality is exceptionally good with nice, accurate flesh tones, colors and sharp, clear images. Presented in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio, the high definition transfer will compliment your HDTV or even the 27 inch in your bedroom. The 5.1 mix isn't quite as active as a theatrical feature but does make good use of the format to place sound effects and atmospheric sounds around the viewer.

We get three featurettes presented inside views on "The Grid".

Fans of techno-thrillers will eat up this six hour mini-series that not only marks the first major collaboration between the BBC and Turner Broadcasting, but also the first time that I have sat up and taken notice of Julianna Margulies.

Fox sent this DVD set along for a review and it wasn't until closer to its release date that I sat down with a good stack of popcorn with my roomies to sit down for the mammoth undertaking.

Over five hours later as we all retired for the evening we concluded that the show had been a good one and even the harshest of reviewers (a rommie of mine who delights in pointing out plotholes) had to admit to being totally engrossed in the drama.

Starting with a dramatic gas attack in a London hotel the action follows the reaction of both the British and American intelligence agencies, acting both separately and (in an uneasy alliance) jointly to combat terrorism in a post-9/11 world.

As covered in the documentary that accompanies this DVD, this shows's writers had to imagine how Al-Queida would evolve in the years following the beginning of production and its eventual 2004 broadcast. Top marks to them for weaving together a topical and involving drama.

With action that covers most of the globe and well drawn characters it is not hard to recommend this show. Fans of Tom Clancy will be pleased and the stunningly gorgeous Julianna Margulies has one more fan in the world in me.

This movie was incredible. I was so sucked in from the beginning and enjoyed it thouroughly. I was amazed at how it seemd so up to date with todays current global news. It shows both sides of terrorism - the ideas and reasoning behind much of it, and the wrongs and evils of it. Some people are afraid of this film and list it as a anti-Arab propaganda, but this couldn't be further from the truth. This movie portrays many Muslims as very good people who are against terrorism, and try to help fight it. I ordered this movie right away from Amazon as soon as I could because I liked it so much. One of the best and interesting movies I've ever seen. I wish every one could see this. My highest ratings. ******

This mini-series was one of several referred to in the new Season of MI-5 as one which other customers had bought so I invested in it.

As a drama mini-series there is much to commend it, a reasonable plot, some inter-agency skullduggery and backstabbing, an international cast, some great locations and reasonable dialogue as well as a realistic basis for a story. For the enthusiast this moves along at a good pace, there is action and intigue aplenty and just about everyone can relate to it.

Alas, I do not feel that it is overall a satisfactory mix. It is certainly a good thing to have an element of grittiness about the show. I think that it is admirable that the British are portrayed as the patsies of America and a people who, for being America's closest allies are somewhat cynical about American intentions. It is a good thing too that bureaucracy is seen as stiffling of initiatives and is often caught wrong-footed but overall there is a pevasive nagging of something more.

I am not sure if the issue is really one of just not wringing true. I also feel that there is too much politically correct angles when dealing with what is clearly a complex subject with many levels of meaning and where much is open to debate. The fact that the main villain of the piece is not seen as some sort of idealistic fundamentalist demagogue but as someone who has his own, well-financed agenda, may correspond with modern analysis of terrorists but when we are assailed every day on our teelevision screens with tales of insurrgent attacks, it almost appears that the thorny subject of fundamentalist terrorists does not want to be directly addressed.

I also take issue with the timescales involved.
