Aroview: A topical thriller embroiled in the thorny issues of African politics (with obvious allusions to Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe), this is a slick, serviceable Hollywood entertainment with a conscience.
Nicole Kidman plays an interpreter for the UN who overhears an assassination plot to kill an African dictator in New York, while Secret Service agent Sean Penn is assigned to unravel the complex truth involving personal agendas and political compromises.

2 stars (Good Try) A decent thriller, although nothing groundbreaking. There are twists and conspiracies to reveal, and the acting is fine, but again this suffers from feeling like a Hollywood adventure rather than a genuine African plot.~Tom H
2 stars (Good Try) The basic premise of overhearing a plot by an interpreter is fine but what ensues lacks credibility.We didn't need the romantic interest it just dragged things out.A bit more of Catherine Keener would have helped.~tubbs
