Simply a poor film.
The Terrorist is a movie with great expectations, unfortunately it achieves none of them. I am shocked to see that it rates so highly on here. I can only assume that many of the weaknesses in this film that would never be accepted in a domestic movie are overlooked by those who believe anything in the "foreign" section of the video store is a misunderstood masterpiece.
I loved the premise, the casting of the main character, and a couple of the scene's were well shot. However the story plods along at a glacial pace and is ridiculous at times and many of the details (especially the sound effects) completely disrupt any sort of suspension of disbelief you may have had.
Without sinking any more money into it this movie could have been so much better. With a better story and a greater attention to the little things this could have been a winner.
