Closed Circuit: Now They See You

Substitute Mid-Eastern terrorists for Communists, and you have a pretty good idea how this British thriller goes. It's an old-fashioned suspense flick and the Movie Slut says that as a compliment.

The violence isn't over the top. The bad guys aren't particularly sadistic. You won't have to watch a 20-minute car chase. And there are no aliens. (Not that there's anything wrong with them.)

You will scoot to the edge of your seat. You will care about the characters, at least some of them. And while some action is predictable, at other times you'll be taken by surprise. (She loves when that happens.)

You may not talk about CC at the water cooler, but that doesn't mean you didn't enjoy it.
