Running Time: 90 mins

Dirty War is a British film about a terrorist group who launch a chemical attack on Central London, and as the authorities are largely unprepared, chaos ensues for the public in the capital.

I myself am from London, so watching this was not the most pleasant thing in the world, and it made me feel very insecure, however it’s just fiction, so let’s move on.

This film was on the whole pretty dull; it failed to keep my attention for much time, and it just became quite frustrating to watch the Met all turn to mush, and end up chaotically trying to organise safe zones in the capital in order to prevent the deadly chemical from infecting any other people.

It seems like a very thrilling concept for a film, however it just was not as entertaining or interesting as I had expected, which meant that I could not appreciate the full danger that the story was trying to promote, so that’s why I think I’ll give it a 4.5, because it was an interesting idea, but it was just a quite a bit of a let down in the end.
