DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller - This is a serious British thriller aimed at adult audiences. Fans of leads Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall will be pleased though some other recognizable stars such as Julia Stiles and Jim Broadbent have much smaller roles. Language, violence, and adult subject matter make the film inappropriate for kids, who would not be interested anyhow.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The movie is low-key but each scene is packed with information. Full understanding demands full attention.

USA Today Full Review
Good It's a compelling conspiracy thriller that grabs our attention from the first reel and keeps viewers on edge with its engaging performances and timely story.

NY Post Full Review
Average 'Closed Circuit,' which oddly plays down the romantic chemistry between its leads, works its way to a fairly predictable, if not particularly believable, conclusion.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 35 moviegoers:
TEENS:The one female didn't care much for "Closed Circuit," but one review isn't worth much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:One male loved it and one disliked it. The female reviews aren't any better. Half thought it was an average movie and half rated it poor which is certainly disappointing.
ADULTS:The male and female reviews are similar, a few rated it above average, but most only felt it was an average to below average movie. These are very mediocre reviews, at best.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
One morning, a busy London market is decimated by an explosion. In the manhunt that follows, only one member of the suspected terrorist cell survives: Farroukh Erdogan (Denis Moschitto), who is arrested and jailed. Preparations begin for what promises to be the trial of the century.

But there's a hitch: the government will use classified evidence to prosecute Erdogan, evidence so secret that neither he nor his lawyers can be allowed to see it. Hence the need for the Attorney General (Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent) to appoint a Special Advocate, an additional government-approved defense lawyer (Claudia Simmons-Howe, played by Golden Globe Award nominee Rebecca Hall), one who has clearance to see classified evidence and who can argue for its full disclosure when the trial moves to "closed" session. The rules for the Special Advocate are clear: once the secret evidence is shared with her, Claudia will not be allowed to communicate even with the defendant or with other members of the defense team.

But just as the case is on the eve of going to trial, Erdogan's lawyer dies suddenly, and a new defense attorney, Martin Rose (Eric Bana), quickly steps in. Martin is tenacious, driven, brilliant -- and an ex-lover of Claudia's. The two lawyers make an uncomfortable pact to keep their former affair hidden. But as Martin begins to piece the case together, the outlines of a sinister conspiracy emerge, one that will draw him and Claudia dangerously close again.
