    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

    Los Angeles Times

    Shoot on Sight has good intentions but winds up a thematically simplistic, dryly plotted and perfunctorily shot melodrama, one of those movies where dialogue is there to categorize people, not parse the complexities of human beings. show more

    A disappointingly stilted melodrama masquerading as a political thriller. show more

    Village Voice

    As if only made for ignoramuses who get nervous around brown skin, nearly everything on-screen is condescendingly telegraphed--from its plodding dialogue jammed with black-or-white morals to its lingering reaction shots, one-dimensional racists and radicals, obvious mood music, and thriller clichés. 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.

    This movie is a MUST SEE! I was able to catch this movie in an advanced screening. I did not know much going into it but I ended up really enjoying the movie. The acting was excellent. The issues raised throughout the movie were especially intriguing and made you really think. This movie shows both sides of the terrorist issue from the stand point of Muslims which I have never seen done before. Overall the movie was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the relevant issues of our world today. The direction was also well done. The movie was made in the UK so it has a different feel but still excellent job!
