Trapped in a car with a bomb, a bomb-disposal expert and her team race against time to diffuse it.


Why watch this film?

Produced by the same team as filmmaker Luc Besson ('The Fifth Element'), this suspense follows a bomb disposal expert who ends up trapped in her car. Along with her are her son and stepdaughter, who were supposed to go to school, but are now stuck in the car due to a bomb. 'Déflagrations' manages to leave the viewer agonizing after every moment, as it seems the bomb is going to explode since the people inside the vehicle can barely move. A flaw of the movie is that the director seems to make an attempt to explore what is like the mind of someone whose job is to deactivate bombs, but this ends up being underdeveloped. Despite this, the feature works well as a thriller that keeps you tense to discover how the climax will be resolved.
