From the award-winning Director, The Leader, His Driver, and the Driver's Wife portrays the sinister and comic sides of Eugene Terre'Blanche, leader of the neo-Nazi AWB Afrikaner Party in South Africa.
When a terrorist group steals the US President's personal communications computer for launching the US arsenal in case of war, only a heroic Major has the key to prevent a Presidential assassination or a nuclear holocaust.
a superb war film about modern day peace keepers on the front lines. there really is nothing flawed about this movie- it is far more "real" than any current "reality-show" you will find on tv. i think what makes it so real is that there are no dramatic shortcuts/ simplifications. we aren't given "the other side of the story", we find ourselves in the middle of the war, no good guys no bad guys just people with guns who say they need guns to defend themselves against people with guns. the job is simple, take the guns away and help bring peace to the community. we see soldiers commited to the task and honour a fallen comrade by placing his blue berret on him as he lay on the stretcher. this is a great war movie because war is presented not as a video game, but more as a test of will.
