Never go the the opera
20 November 2018 | by greenheartSee all my reviews

Classical music meets terrorism, an interesting mix. Some of the scenes in this movie are just a shade bizarrre, at times the tension is quite good, particularly in the first half of the movie, but then the tension gets broken by these odd scenes. I think the movie tries to touch on some of the terrorists vulnerabilities and how such people end up with semi-automatic weapons in their hands. But it doesn't quite get there, I wish it had stuck to one genre and thrown all its energies into that area. At the end of the day, I preferred the tension and drama to the love scenes which I didn't find plausible. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed the movie, I just feel that it never falls into the greatness category. My favourite quote from the movie "Are you sure they won't shoot, not everyone likes opera"
