"The Insurgents" uses the events of 9/11 as a springboard to talk about politics and society, security and freedom, patriotism and dissent. Led by a disillusioned former government operative turned radical left-wing academic, a group plans to detonate a bomb in the United States as an act of protest against what they feel are imperialistic actions. Throughout their planning and doubts among some members, issues such as when is violence an appropriate response and what is the difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter are debated. A fractured narrative structure adds to the suspense as complications such as love triangles and double crosses are gradually revealed. It is an unflinching self-examination of what it means to be American, the state in which we find ourselves, the implications for the future.

The one thing I found myself thinking while watching the trailer was, "Well, looks like some leftists are taking their radical beliefs to their logical conclusion."
