Just the presence of Ally McBeal alum Gil Bellows in a movie causes my eyebrow to raise in skepticism*. Mix him in with the following names and you at the very least get my curiosity:

It’s a weird mix of the overexposed** and the where-are-they-now, and they’re all working together on a movie called Unthinkable which posits the unthinkable idea that Michael Sheen, the man who had a mini-career playing Tony Blair, is a Muslim terrorist with the key to the location of three nuclear weapons.
