Loyal veteran Navy S.E.A.L. Lt. A.K. Waters (Bruce Willis) is sent into the heart of war-torn Africa on a hazardous mission to rescue Dr. Lena Hendricks (Monica Bellucci), a U.S. citizen who runs a missionary. When the beautiful doctor refuses to abandon the refugees in her care, Lt. Waters finds himself having to choose between following orders and the dictates of his own conscience. Together, they begin a dangerous trek through the deadly jungle, all the while being pursued by a rebel militia group, with only one goal in mind: to assassinate Lt. Waters' unit and the refugees in his care.
He was trained to follow orders. He became a hero by defying them.. Navy SEAL Lieutenant A.K. Waters and his elite squadron of tactical specialists are forced to choose between their duty and their humanity, between following orders by ignoring the conflict that surrounds them, or finding the courage to follow their conscience and protect a group of innocent refugees. When the democratic government of Nigeria collapses and the country is taken over by a ruthless military dictator, Waters, a fiercely loyal and hardened veteran is dispatched on a routine mission to retrieve a Doctors Without Borders physician..

Only a neutered liberal could watch this movie and complain. When you read a film critic referring to a movie as "reactionary", you can almost guarantee it's going to be good and this film is excellent. True to life tactics and weapons and an accurate portrayal of the difficult decisions our special forces guys face on the ground, and the overall deplorable conditions of life on the African continent. Must see for anyone who appreciates a movie that pits good vs. evil and acknowledges America's long standing role as the shining city on the hill.
Great movie with Bruce Willis, but where’s the extended cut movie?! I wanna see it!
Dude this is lit this movie is action packed and totally lit dude you need to watch this movie this is the most lit war movie ever
This movie is real, a tear jerker but so powerful. The music is very inspirational. This movie teaches us to do the right thing no matter what and that for "evil to prevail is for good men to stand down and do nothing" as told by Edmund Burke
Forget what all these critics are saying, they have no taste and cannot appreciate an obviously great movie when they see one.
You like action? Explosions? Gory scenes? Well this movie has it all. It is freaking amazing dude! I loved it.
I will be looking into more work by this director. Intense and suspensefull. Bruce Willis rules. Rotten Tomatoes stink!!
While I could write a short story about this… I suggest you watch this once and then learn as much about the NAVY S.E.A.L.s that you can. Then take the time to re-watch this incredible movie. While you might need to watch this movie a couple of times in order to fully grasp the brilliant role of the Special Operators in this film. After who knows how many missions this group of S.E.A.L.s have been ordered to destroy threats (people) to America this time, when they see something that has “nothing” to with their mission, they “turn the bird” in order to save those that can’t save themselves. In the process of rallying to their extract point they see and atrocity in real time, one that only they can put a stop to. Breaking orders again, they kill those that have no honor only hatred in their souls.
The previews don't do this movie any justice(& that's rare). Great storyline(that gives an example of war torn countries filled with genocide, as did "Blood Diamond", another one of my favorites), great acting(by all characters, esp Bruce W.), and great directing! This is the old Bruce Willis I'm used to seeing.
Awsome navy seals movie!
Absolutely love this war flick! Great storyline and characters!
bruce willis is Awesome i love the tears of the sun bruce willis is hot i love bruce willis
Don't waste yout time this movie is a big fail!!
Dont pay attention to the rotten Tomato group; I do not think they completed high school This is a movie that is a serious topic. It will shock you and wake you up to what goes on in Africa and the sheer horror and brutality that women and their families endure. Bruce Willis does a great job in the movie, but anyone could have played this role because the movie is not about that character. It is about the lives people lead there, the lives we westerners try and pretend don't happen. This film is a wakeup for humanity. I found it extraordinarily difficult to watch, but it was important that I do so. You should too.
its a very good movie.
i loved this movie. it was action packed and had a lot of suspence in it. it has a good story line and i love those movie when the bad guys get ripped in the end. great movie =)
This is a well done movie. It gives insight in to the world of military operations and the objectives of them. It only has a few action scenes that are spread across the length of the movie, however, they are detailed enough to keep the viewer satisfied throughout the film. It touches on political issues in Africa which gives the movie’s result an importance as it parallels reality.
This movie is pretty good there is a fair bit of action but not as much as the likes of Saving private ryan or black hawk down but overall a good movie
this movie has good action scenes and bruce willis plays the tough guy well as usual. But the Dr is a real pain, always whining. overall a good movie
