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.

Thought Provoking  CZT1  5 star

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.

Bahamian Royale
Great movie!  Bahamian Royale  5 star

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

Plays with your emotions  Krelliford1991  5 star

Forget what all these critics are saying, they have no taste and cannot appreciate an obviously great movie when they see one.

Once again the Tomato Meter is sooo WRONG!  DaVinci1092  5 star

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.

Styles917
A MUST SEE!!!  Styles917  5 star

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.

Don't waste yout time this movie is a big fail!!

HilaryMae
The Rotten Tomato people are blind  HilaryMae  5 star

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.

Logical and Creative
Simple yet visually detailed  Logical and Creative  5 star

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.
