Terrorism, but in the setting of a select cast.

Explosions, confusion, screams, and one big mystery.  Such are the images seen in the trailer of John Crowley’s new film “Closed Circuit”.  The creator of “Boy A” and “Is Anybody There” has decided this time to present us with a crime story, but with a touch of drama too.  Will he achieve success?

My first thought after watching this trailer, was that there will be a lot going on in this film. A sudden explosion, lots of secrets, a feeling of chaos – all this allowed me to put myself in the shoes of the main characters.  Like them, I started to wonder what was really happening and why.
The strong emotions I felt confirm the description of the plot of the film by its creators – “Closed Circuit” is an International Thriller in which very important matters are addressed, which are difficult at the same time: terrorism, the boundaries of loyalty and life in constant danger.  
It may be, that the modern viewer is bored of the subject of terrorism.  Films associated with attacks of terrorism in the USA and Ireland have caused us not to want to watch media which shocks us. But despite this, Crowley has decided to take up the challenge of convincing us to watch such scenes, by presenting terrorism one last time with a select group of some of the best actors around. Eric Bana (known from the films “Black Hawk Down” as well as “Hulk”), Rebecca Hall („Iron Man 3”, „The Town”,  „Please Give”, „Vicky Cristina Barcelona”) and Ciaran Hinds ( „Munich”, „The Phantom Of The Opera”, „Miami Vice”) are a trio which judging by the trailer, give „Closed Circuit” an incredibly convincing undertone.
Is "Closed Circuit" worth watching? Take a look at the trailer and decide for yourself!

A movie is a fixed length, it uses a different part of my concentration- essentially a movie-watching experience is just extremely different from reading a book. This is one of the reasons why it is so difficult to please me when movies are based off of books I love.
