A great idea for a film and I imagine such things do happen( remember PolPoT? remember Ruwanda?), but the acting and a poor script full of cliches do rather let it down. In support of the film I imagine its very difficult to try and use fiction to get over some of the facts about human rights abuse and political doublespeak and Hollywood just doesnt do justice to them with this offering.

God Help Africa
I campaign against Human Rights Abuses and Injustice and this film really "does the business" for me. This fabulously shot and beautifully acted movie carries a powerful "social message". It exposes the empty promises and total lack of interest that Western Governments have for Africa's problems. Bruce Willis plays the lead role of a "war hardened" commander who's conscience will not allow him to carry out his heartless orders once he has seen the horrific fate that awaits the helpless refugees his superiors insist he must abandon. Brilliant, I think everyone who works in the FCO should be made to watch this film .... several times.

God how awful!
I just saw a segment of this film. It was truly awful - full of all the worst cliches imaginable. Brucey and a bunch of similar square jawed stubbly heros are standing around making a decision as to the way forward. Do they help these refugees or do they just follow orders? Helpfully one of the refugees is kind of pretty and Western looking with plenty of cleavage on show. For some reason Brucey decides that helping the refugees might be the way forward. After some dreadful speech and fixing his eyes in a macho stare (the way the character 'Joey' from 'Friends' acts when the writers want to emphasise what a bad actor he is)Brucey, ever the democrat, consults his men. Surprise, surprise, every one of his men is behind him - each in his own 'staring into the distance' kind of way. Finally a black soldier approaches Bruce and makes some god awful comment linking what they are about to do to black people standing up for their rights in the 70's. Malcom X must be turning in his grave.
