I watched Unthinkable the other night. An American citizen converts to Islam (Michael Sheen) and decides to plant nuclear bombs in cities in response to U.S. foreign policy. Samuel Jackson plays a contractor/interrogator and Carrie-Anne Moss plays an FBI agent.
I've only ever liked Samuel Jackson in Pulp Fiction, but his performance in this one was so good that it will definitely make it into my (very short) Sam Jackson movies to watch list. The film also has very light undertones regarding the implications of consequentialist ethics and how an agent that understands his/her role within this framework would behave.
I'd have let Jackson torture the shit out of Sheen's kids. There's a rather ironic line in there about the US being better since democracy/Jackson would go on trial afterwards.
