7 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

This was a film that, because it is based on fact, is thought-provoking and a bit unnerving. While not fantastic, this film still enters a realm of human behavior and politics that makes it interesting. I found Jon Voight's character a bit annoying (perhaps I am being a bit harsh... I've never been a huge fan of his), but one who stood for what he believed. Sam Neill does indeed put in a good performance (no surprise there), and I found myself rooting for his character. On the whole, the movie was good, and made me rethink everything I ever thought about government, civil defense, and politics. It is a film that will open your eyes, and you may not like what you see. Thank God there are people out there who really do seek the truth, and demand justice!
