Do you really believe that in Istanbul, three grenades could be detonated in short succession, at
least 20 gunmen are shot in various locations and that a taxi could break through the fortified entrance of the American Embassy and that NO ONE seems to notice? Even when the taxi has come to rest in the central courtyard of the Embassy, not one soldier approaches the taxi - thus allowing Liam and Dear Daughter to have a heartfelt conversation without interruption. This is one of the laziest writing jobs to make it to the screen in years. BUT, the action itself is well-directed and everything looks great. Completely mindless but kinetic.
The whole cast is great in roles that any actor would cherish. The descent into mental illness by
Michael Shannon is convincing and you really feel his fear, not just of the calamities he envisions, but the fact that his mind is betraying him. The resulting strain on his marriage is so real and aching painful that at times you want to yell advice at the screen.
The camerawork is basic, nothing fancy, and at times you wish for a more sure visual hand from the director. Some of the shots just don't deliver. There's a feeling that the director, while great with story and acting, didn't have much experience with camera.
Overall, it's a unnerving movie about a subject that is often poorly dealt with in cinema. There is certainly some wisdom in this movie.
