Samir Horn (Cheadle)Â is a devout Muslim who was born in Sudan, moved to the USA, andÂ had been trained in the US Special Forces as an explosives expert. He is nowÂ living inÂ Afghanistan, and apparently has betrayed his home country (USA) by selling bomb-making materials to terrorists.
When there are bomb attacks inÂ Spain and France, FBI Agents Roy Clayton (Pearce) and Max Archer (McDonough) begin to track Samir as he makes his way fromÂ country to country, trying desperately to find out what hisÂ next target is.
The head of aÂ major terrorist group, Nathir (Rawi), tells Samir that they are to make aÂ majorÂ strike in the heart of the US by putting bombs on 50 busses, all to explode at the same time.
Now, Samir, who believes that killing innocent civilians is against the teachings of the Koran, must face his duty to the terrorists, as well as to God.

This is one of the best in a trend of films about terrorism in the Middle East, and it has a surprise ending that is very satisfying.
The image is very sharp, and there is excellent use of the surround channels.
