HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO TO MAKE HIM TALK?
When a Muslim man (Michael Sheen) is brought into custody after threatening to explode three nuclear devices, a special interrogator (Samuel L. Jackson) tries to make him reveal the locations of the bombs. This direct-to-DVD thriller brings up the issue of torture and where to cross the line, but so many other films and TV shows have already done it in more thoughtful and sophisticated ways. Sheen is good, but the film lacks direction: the ending feels like one of many arbitrary choices.
