A gritty and compelling drama about ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events. Michelle Williams is outstanding, although I have to agree with the previous reviewer who pointed out that her waif-like body seemed more Hollywood than working-class council estate. Still, a minor quibble in what is a worthy film.
I loved this movie for the depth of character and the sensitive way of showing a mother's spiral into utter grief. Michelle Williams is first class.
Excellent, watch watch watch. Michelle and Ewan put in a great performance, Gritty story.
A complex movie which is quite sad. Don't watch if you don't like unhappy movies.
I had read the book and so it's no surprise that personally the film did not live up to my expectations. The characters were depicted well and the opening of the film was near-perfect to the book and after that the film lost all the excitement of the books plot. The film became an emotional battle about a lady who loses her child in a terrorism attack on a British football match and only touched on the conspiracy that the government knew. Read the book and leave the film.
Really a poor movie, only a platform for Michell Williams.
The only Good part was Matthew Macfadyen's comment that "Terrorism is not a battle against races it is a battle against another species"
We found this quite depressing really ... no life to it and a sad tale which didn't really have any uplifting moments at all.
Incendiary sounded promising and has a good cast but has the kind of plot that perhaps worked okay in a novel but seems totally over-egged in a 90 minute movie. Michelle Williams does a fairly good mockney accent but her elfin face and child-like build made it hard for me to take her seriously as a fourth generation north London council estate resident. Still, I was moved to tears by the story of her loss of her young child. The other sub-plots (infidelity, terrorism, romance) seemed just a bit far-fetched.
