The head of the FBI's Counter-Terrorism Task Force, Anthony Hubbard (Denzel Washington), would team up with a CIA operative named Elise Kraft(Annette Bening) to hunt down all the terrorist cells responsible for the series of attacks. Meanwhile, the threat of using the "Martial Law" for New York is threatening the rest of the people.
This one is one good objective film. All of the elements are here. From the terrorists, to the innocent ones, the lawmakers, the good people and the people who are so greedy of power. It's a well-made suspense film.
