A young journalist, a seasoned cameraman and a discredited war correspondent embark on an unauthorized mission to find the no. 1 war criminal in Bosnia; they find themselves in serious jeopardy when they are mistaken as a CIA hit squad and their target decides to come after them. Written by
At the end of the film, there is the following text "In theory, the official hunt for war criminals in Bosnia continues to this day ... However the two most wanted men - Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic - continue to evade the U.S., the United Nations, the European Union, NATO, the Hague and all in the civilized world who claim to be looking for them. In the ten years that Radovan Karadzic has been on the run, he has published two books and one play. Perhaps if the International Community opened a semester theatre... ... But they're probably too busy "searching" for Osama Bin laden."
Since the film was released, there have been major developments. Radovan Karadzic was arrested in 2008 in Belgrade and extradited to the Netherlands. Found guilty of 10 (out of 11) counts of war crimes by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), he was sentenced to 40 years imprisonment in 2016. Ratko Mladic was arrested in Lazarevo (Serbia) in 2011 and extradited to the Netherlands. His trial started in 2012 and is still incomplete. See more »

If you wonn'a see American one side story of good and bad guys which does not have any similarity with the real story and what happened in Bosnia - this is movie for u. Shame for the Richard Gere. Pathetic scenario. Bad acting. It is difficult to find adequate words to describe it, but comment demands minimum ten lines to be published, so I will try to find pick some words with the biggest possible effort.
For me, one of the most prejudiced, unethical, tendentious movies ever
which makes it a bad comedy instead of war thriller...... 1 is to big
grade for it. But don't miss it, if you want to know what didn't happened there, and want to have a big laugh how Americans are good guys you will find some material here.
