John (Jesse Eisenberg) and Dena (Dakota Fanning) are young environmental activists. They want to make a huge statement and pull off a master protest, blowing up a dam. They enlist an ex-military explosives expert, Harmon (Peter Sarsgaard) to show them how, and to assist in making the explosives.

I thought maybe this would be an entertaining film, but I was somewhat disappointed. With really strong actors, the story itself just seems to go nowhere. There are some twists and turns, and some regrets and misgivings, but this movie just plodded along at such a slow pace, that it seemed to drag and drag and drag. The good part of the movie is the unexpected consequences of the choices they make. Things are not as they expected they would be and the results were not what they wanted. That part of the story is halfway decent. But the flaws in the story make it difficult for me to recommend, as Jesse spends half the movie just staring moodily out into space. No emotions, no dialog, just staring. The pace is so slow, that I wanted to scream. I just didn’t get the point, although I could follow the story, this could have been done so much better. I am sorry but I just don’t recommend that you subject yourself to this. It’s very depressing.
