Getting Past The First 45 Minutes Is The Hardest Part
Wow, this a grim film. Don't look for a lot of laughs in this one! It's not bad if - and that's a big "if" - you can get past the first 45 minutes.
I got past it on the first viewing but not on the second. It was just too much. Seeing youngsters assassinated, families blown up and then a pregnant woman kicked several times in the stomach was too much for me
Dennis Quaid plays an American soldier overseas whose family dies at the hands of a Muslim bomber. He gets revenge by heading to a local mosque and begins shooting everyone inside. Quaid is then sent away to a foreign legion and winds up in the middle of the Bosnia War between Muslims and Serbs, and along the way caring for that pregnant woman who was treated so brutally.
This is a very somber film, very depressing in spots, but worth one look. I don't know if you'd want to see it more than that.
