Real-life heroes
17 June 2000 | by (Lubbock, TX) – See all my reviews

I wasn't sure what I would think about this movie, considering some of the less-than-exemplary movies Louis Gossett has been in over the years, but wow!

Don't get me wrong, this movie starts off slowly, even in the acting department, but Lou takes us through Sadat's history and teaches us about a real-life, flawed, human hero who overcame a whole world of prejudice, somehow, in order to help change our world.

Real life heroes, indeed. :)
