Gabriel Byrne in a bad movie....NOT!
28 January 2004 | by (reggie100) – See all my reviews

The other comment is pretty harsh on this movie. I rather enjoyed it. It was intense, and Gabriel Byrne's performance, as always, was outstanding.

Some of the war movies always seem to be so much alike. This one was so different and the ending is very unexpected.

I'd see it again - in fact, I own the movie, and I'm very glad I do.

Gabriel Byrne is so down to earth and SO believable. He is truly a joy to watch. Again, I stress the fact that this is not like an ordinary war movie -- it's GREAT, man!
