A fictional political thriller based on the London terrorist bombings of 7/7 and the subsequent police order to 'Shoot on Sight', the film unfolds the turmoil of the life of Tariq Ali, a Muslim police officer at Scotland Yard. Commander Ali, born in Lahore and married to an English woman, is tasked to investigate the police shooting of a suspected Muslim terrorist in the London Underground. Distrusted not only by his superiors in the police but also by his fellow Muslims, he finds his inquiry hampered from all sides. When evidence surfaces pointing to the slain man’s innocence, as well as the existence of a terrorist cell operating in his own back yard, Tariq must face the realisation that, sometimes, the right decision is the hardest one to make.
- Shoot on Sight review by CP Customer
when i put this film in my rental list i was a bit apprehensive as i didnt think the story was worth making a film out of,but as i got further in the film there was more to this story than i actually read about.good film with good acting! was a bit ignorant towards the muslim man who got shot before i read this film because i just thought he was another extremist trying to kill innocent people.as i got further into the film i realised that because of these evil people an innocent man was gunned to death by the police force for actually being a muslim.the film shows in great depth what everybodys thinking towards muslims when actually the muslims now are getting all the trouble because of these idiots.good film!
