    Radcliffe saves America - and movie's script


    IMPERIUM (M18)


    Thriller / 109 minutes / Opens today

    Rating: 3/5

    WHEN radioactive material enters the United States illegally, two Federal Bureau of Investigation agents suspect white supremacist groups are responsible.

    They then go undercover to save America before it's too late.

    FBI agent Nate Foster (Daniel Radcliffe) is unhappy with his job, so when agent Zamparo (Toni Collette) picks him to infiltrate the white supremacist groups, he jumps at the chance.

    Despite a clumsy plot, Imperium provides an entertaining look into some pressing social issues, but most of its value lies in its cast.

    With a stellar performance, Radcliffe saves the film from potential misfires, bringing a seriousness that the script fails to provide.
