        ryan phillippe plays a dutchman travelling to morocco in whicch itv seems hes settting up a food charity, but when captured and kidnapped by muslims, he is ordered to tell them why he is here, and a talk around the table begins, with his capture played by laurence fishburn, as to what hes doing why, and what he really is here for. a interesting small scale drama, which tests your thinking as story goes on, it questions his motives for being there, and is he actually a radical against west himself, it does well bringing up questions n tdays current events, and who people really are, it doesent outstay its welcome, and the ending will show you what the supposed god guys are doing, to catch the bad guys, a interesting watch

        I was really quite disappointed by this movie. It's a considerably more akin to Captivity than it is to Hard Candy, which is a huge weakness in a movie professed as "a mental chess match". It was interesting to see how the events of the story slowly unravel and come to light, but the pace seems so slow as to seem deliberately protracted. This is kinda what a film looks like when the filmmakers have decided that they don't have enough plot, and they stretch what they've already got until it's long enough, but quite thin. I quite like all the characters and their motivations, but I think the movie was bigger and longer than the scipr could sustain.

        Nice cast for such a small movie Laurence Fishburne, Colm Meaney, Ryan Phillippe and Saïd Taghmaoui Not sure what to make of this one. I thought it started very well, no pre-amble and got into the action straightaway. Colm Meaney's character seemed so lightweight you knew he was going to get killed. About halfway through the film, I started to not care about Ryan Phillipe's character. I started not to care about his 'food programme'. And sadly I saw the twist coming and was proved right. The acting was OK, Laurence Fishburne was great. It's just the story never really dragged you in. It felt like the film would've benefited more from being longer, allowing you to get more involved. What I found to be in particular painful to watch wasn't the torture itself, but the way Martijn (Ryan Philippe) acted out his ordeal. To me it looked as if Philippe tried too hard to get his accent right and it made his performance glibly amateur which in turn even dragged down the performance of an otherwise great Colm Meaney. Phillipe's accent btw, being far from anything near Dutch, sounded more like Eastern European. Besides the acting of Philippi(which to my surprise turned from poor to actually decent towards the end) there is the matter of the flashbacks with the hackneyed Dutch scenery. (If these scenes were set in Switzerland they would have had the cast eat cheese on mountaintops with endless pastures with grazing cows wearing expensive timepieces). Scenery aside, The way these flashbacks pushed the plot didn't work for me at all. It made it being served like French fries at a drive-in and caused the build-up of suspense to flatline. Admittedly the movie did become more enjoyable as Phillipe's acting improved but I couldn't help being annoyed every now and then with scenes that were just too implausible. E.g.: ************ Start spoiler At some point (after days) Philippe is almost tenderly washed by the female terrorist. This only to be followed by the brute severing of yet another finger. Why give the guy a wash if he's in for a torture? And the severing of that last finger seemed to only serve the title of this flick anyway, I mean, he was practically begging to have it knifed off. Didn't make sense... ************ End spoiler What ultimately kept me watching was the performance of Fishburn who once again proved to be a brilliant actor but who also had the best part of the script to work with. All in all one is just far better off seeing "The Interview" with that other Matrix-icon: Hugo Weaving. And when you do, I'm confident you won't find this review that disagreeable. 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. When a young Dutch idealist travels to Morocco to start a food charity he's kidnapped by local terrorists and has to engage in a mental chess match to learn his captors' objectives.

        Il me manque les 5-10 premières minutes du film, et à vrai dire, après 1h20 de visionnement, .... , je ne comprend rien du tout !!! Tout ce qu'on voit c'est un gars se faire torturer pour qu'il dise la vérité, et cela, en se faisant couper les doigts un par un, jusqu'à ce qu'il finisse par parler. Après tout ce qui à pu se dire comme mensonge, il est impossible de trouver qu'est-ce qui est la vérité.
