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.Read more ›
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!!
Here's the scoop. (Some Spoilers Here) Young Mother (Michelle Williams) is married to a guy who diffuses bombs. They have a 4 year old boy. She's having an affair with reporter Jasper Black (Ewan McGregor). Dad and son get killed in a terrorist bombing at a soccer game. Black figures something is fishy about the bombing. Young Mother starts up a friendship with the son of one of the bombers.
So what's this supposed to be about. Part of it is the mourning we experience as a people when something horrible like this happens. Then there's McGregor uncovering a conspiracy. Then there's Young Mother and her friendship with the terrorist's son. This movie is all over the place. The pieces just don't fit together. And when you head off down one path you're forced into a whiplash turn down another so the movie can't gain any momentum. The one thread that is at least fairly consistent is Young Mother's mentally writing a letter to Osama Bin Laden about what he hath wrought upon the British people. Williams has done better in other movies and McGregor has as well. There are no bad performances here, but nothing sticks out as being really good either. This is just an unfocused, so-so effort.
There are so many other good dramas out there that I really can't recommend spending good leisure time on this.
it starts off about a married couple that lives in london and has a four yr old son,
the father works as a person that keeps bombs from goin off,
the mother is a stay at home mom,
all sounds good huh?
well, here is wher eit gets really confusing,
one day the father decides to take his son to a soccer game and mom stays at home,
at this point, she is thinking that the hubby is so caught up in work, and she never gets her needs met,
so while the hubby & son are at the game, she goes to the nearest puba dn has a few drinks,
and meets a nice young man & she tells him , she is married and has a son,
he has had to much to drink and so has she, ,
so they go back to her place and she decides to turn on the tv soshe can see the game,
well, they start having intercourse and right in ther middle of it all,
there is a special breaking news coming from the game,
the stadium is blown up amnd there were lots of dead or missing people ,
they top having sex immedately and get dressed and go down to where the stadium is,
she does not look for her hbby, she looks for her son,
people are still running out of the staduim and she gets hit , ran over and so forth,
ahe ends up as one of the people sent to the hospital, she never found hr son,
she looks out the hospital window as london has raised big air balloons ,
with pictures of the people that passed away,
as he looks, she sees a picture on the balloons of her son,
she gets healthy and she leaves the hospital, she is still in shock that her son is dead,
she tries to go own normally, and she never sees or hears of herhusband,
as the show goes forward, you will see the flashbacks of her & her son together,
from here on out , the movie loses it way and its hard to understand what happens
i can not recommend this movie, its just to hard to understand

Got this movie because I had read the book. It is a different kind of story and one which took a lot of imagination to write. The film is not so good.Published on December 31, 2013 by Dianne Thyret
A strange and hard look at how we are all used in the terrorism fight. This has a good cast with good acting and hard questions to answer about the characters and yourself. Read morePublished on August 20, 2013 by James Etherton
