Daniel Radcliffe flexes his acting muscles in the role of an idealistic FBI agent who goes undercover posing as a skinhead to infiltrate a radical right-wing terrorist group

Daniel Radcliffe flexes his acting muscles in the role of an idealistic FBI agent who goes undercover posing as a skinhead to infiltrate a radical right-wing terrorist group.

His meek loner looks completely out of place and patently unsuited for the task - as he insists to his hard-nosed FBI handler (Toni Collette) prior to the mission. Surely the racist thugs will rumble his cover? Or will his sharp wits keep him out of trouble?

Loosely based on the real-life experiences of co-writer Mike German, this thriller lacks punch.

However, Radcliffe convinces us that when his hero gets into a jam he really is thinking on his feet to get out of it and the topical plot makes for a chilling cautionary tale.
