Overview

Edward Zwick directed this action thriller about Islamic militants unleashing terrorism in New York City. As FBI Terrorism Task Force-chief Anthony Hubbard (Denzel Washington) investigates, a false-alarm bomb threat is followed by a legit bomb, with many killed when a Brooklyn bus explodes. Agents track a suspect through Brooklyn, while Hub teams with Middle East expert and NSA operative Elise Kraft (Annette Bening). After the FBI wipes out three Arabs in a Brooklyn apartment, an explosion in a Broadway theater is followed by attacks on a school and FBI headquarters. When the President declares martial law, neo-fascist Army General William Devereaux (Bruce Willis) swings into action, deploying tanks through Brooklyn, capturing Arab-American males, and herding them into an open-air stadium detention camp. Hub's Arab-American FBI associate Frank Haddad (Tony Shalhoub) is disgusted and quits when his son becomes one of the Arab detainees. With the Army out of control, the power-crazed Devereaux devises plans for torture and murder, turning his attention to Hub and Elise. President Bill Clinton is seen denouncing terrorists in TV clips.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Denzel Washington is always good, so it’s no surprise to see him effortlessly dominating this taut, violent action film directed with panache by Tony Scott ((Top Gun, Enemy of the State). What is surprising is how skillfully child star Dakota Fanning plays off the veteran actor in their scenes together. Washington is John Creasy, a former Special Forces operative who reluctantly takes a job as bodyguard to Pita Ramos (Fanning), the young daughter of a wealthy Mexican industrialist (Marc Anthony) and his stunningly beautiful Anglo wife (Radha Mitchell). A sullen, morose individual with a drinking problem, Creasy gradually warms to Pita’s sunny disposition -- only to succumb to the dark side of his nature when the girl is kidnapped and presumed murdered. Washington is remarkably convincing as the avenging angel who relentlessly pursues anyone who had a hand in the child’s disappearance. Cold-blooded and ruthless, this character reveals qualities Denzel seldom exhibits on screen; his portrayal of Creasy rivals his Oscar-nominated turn as the crooked cop in Training Day. And Fanning is so adorable -- and so realistic -- that her sudden removal from center stage lends added urgency and apprehension to the story. Scott’s staging is designed to keep viewers on edge throughout; his camera darts every which way and many shots are cut so short that they barely register as flashes on the screen. Action sequences erupt quickly in short, staccato bursts. But the visual pyrotechnics are strictly secondary to the powerful performances of Washington and Fanning, one of the most unlikely -- but most effective -- screen teams in recent memory.
