Storyline

When Mohammed Al-Rehaief, a young Iraqi lawyer, learns that Private first class Jessica Lynch, a 19-year old U.S. soldier from West Virginia, is held as POW in an Iraqi hospital, he wants to find out what a girl the age of his own daughters is doing and why she's being held, both the U.S. troops and his nationalist countrymen start treating him as a suspect- his personal drama is adding itself to hers and countless other ones in post-Saddam Iraq...

9 November 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the most boring TV Movies I've ever seen. This girl got lost, knocked unconscious, and was later rescued two weeks later. And she received a medal for it. The only thing more asinine is that some execs at NBC thought this would make a good movie.

Politics aside, this movie is pretty much what you'd expect from a story that isn't there: boring. The only parts even remotely interesting is the opening 5 minutes where the convoy is attacked. The parts about Lynch explaining why she went into the military, talking with friends about her private life, etc: no one cares. There wasn't anything in this movie that gave you a personal look into the war in Iraq that you couldn't find from any 5 minute summary from CNN.com

Hopefully, low ratings will keep them from airing this trash a second time.
