Interesting moral dilemma
23 October 2001 | by (Squeedunk, VT) – See all my reviews

This movie presents the moral dilemma -- do the ends justify the means? The president of the United States fakes his own abduction to prevent a facscist takeover of the country. Unfortunately, too many of the few people who have seen this picture can grasp the importance as the appreciation for the horror of a fascist state and the possibility of it happening here (USA) have faded over time -- witness the lack of concern for the resurgence of know-nothing ultra-right-wing groups .
