    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    It's earnest, well-intentioned and scrupulously even-handed, in the style of made-for-TV problem movies. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Starts out as a thriller inspired by that city's 2005 Tube and bus bombings but gets bogged down in a family soap opera. show more

    The movie's lack of subtlety is countered by an unswerving commitment to impartiality. show more

    Shoot on sight is an intense movie that revolves around a Muslim police officer following the events of the UK Underground bombings in 2005. The plot is so really interesting and the issues raised are especially intriguing. The movie itself was well made. Some of the actors performances including Naseerudin Shah and Om Puri were spectacular. Some of the scenes were so intense I was literally gripping the chair. Overall I would say this movie is incredibly and definitely a have to see.
