This movie has a good story line, albeit a bit self righteous and with quite a sad ending; which is unusual for these types of US movies. The cast is good and there are some interesting side issues... Read moretoo. Overall I quite enjoyed it, but, would felt better about it if the ending hadn't been quite so tragic.
Max Brogan is an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent (ICE) with a dangerous flaw - he has a heart and sympathy for the very people he must track down and deport. His partner, Iranian-American Hamid awaits his father's naturalisation ceremony and appears dedicated to his job only to prove to his family how important it is to be American. As the duo runs routine busts on illegal immigrants, several other stories are revealed: a defence lawyer negotiates for a new family for an orphaned child and must also orchestrate the deportation method of a family whose 15-year old daughter is accused of having ties to terrorism; a young Jewish man tries to use his unpractised religion to secure a job; and Cole Frankel uses his position as a green card approval supervisor to force a beautiful Australian model into some compromising positions.
