This absorbing docudrama credibly shows how the street protests surrounding the 1999 World Trade Organization conference disintegrated into random acts of violence, but it's somewhat scattershot as it focuses on various individuals caught up in the five days of rioting. Actor Stuart Townsend, making his debut as writer-director, also stacks the deck a little too neatly by highlighting a handful of activists but only one policeman. One strength is Barry Ackroyd's handheld-camera work, which deftly tracks the action but still captures the disorientation of those engulfed by the mayhem. With Woody Harrelson, Martin Henderson, Michelle Rodriguez, and Charlize Theron. 100 min.
