Not bad...could have been better
10 November 2003 | by (Chicago, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

Overall, the made for TV movie was well acted. It was good to see that the focus really was not on Jessica Lynch, but rather on Mohammed Al-Raheif. If you've read his book (which this movie is based on), you will see how he risked everything just to save this woman. He really was the hero and it's too bad that SO MUCH attention was put on Lynch.

Good things about the movie: well-acted, focused on the Iraqi, felt like you were in Iraq, visual and sound effects acceptable

Bad things about the movie: a little slow paced, some of the scenes don't seem to match the Al-Raheif's book, visual and sound effects could have been better.
