The uprising is or was real. The doctor played by Cooper, was a real person forced to take over a military barracks because he was the highest ranking officer left after a Muslim Suicide attack as I recall.. The movie is a diagram of how to treat Muslim terrorists and should be watched by those in today's world who want to stop terror. Cooper uses their religion in order to fight them. Watch the movie for how this works. The characters are developed well, and while the story might seem like a rehash of another movie, it is a fairly representative movie of a real life hero. Not Gary Coopers finest work, but is a good movie and will give insight into Muslim Fundamentalist mindset.
