Pretending to read the 2 critics above me* hitting on words like wannabe Jihadee.. and moving on*, 28 August 2011
Author: pagetti_ohs from USA

To me this wasn't even about the complexity or minimization of a film.. it was the reality that sunk in knowing.. the turmoils and thoughts I've went through.. How far would I go as a teenager.. when I was a teenager, to change the world for my country? Being a soldier was never in my plans and making a name for myself wasn't my style. Don't get me wrong, this isn't about me either... it's about the fact of "desperation vs determination". Oswald, just the guy next door, no one saw that coming. Kip Kinkle (2 weeks before Columbine, Springfield, Or) had enough bullying for a change.. made some computer aided bombs and said "Amazing Grace" to mom and dad, before heading off to school in the morning. 2 students dead 22 wounded. ( A friend of mine was hit in the leg that day) Regardless... this film, is about elements beyond our self indulged lives. People merrily go about their day and randomly hand a young teenage girl change for the phone, unaware she's calling the very men.. who have planted about 20 lbs. of Semtex in her JanSport.

Everything we love and live for, everyone we hold dear is gone, within a Killswitch engage of a second.. and we didn't even realize we walked right past the girl.. and yeah so what if she was crying a little and had some urine on her pants.. I can't remember what she was wearing.. she looked American to me ,Officer!.. I mean I have a kid sister that age, mister detective..."

A young girl going from one random street clicking on a Mp3 player, and helplessly being devastated by the fact that she failed her people, and yet innocent bystanders just simply look past her, most not even noticing the possible brush of death knocking so closely at their door.. as they walk right by with their children.

Her untrue story is she has no family.. they died where she came from, and something tells you that if she had stated the truth these men would never let her go through with it.. and yet when she reaches out for her parents.. the shame of it seems to make herself dead to them, or she chose this for her punishment. But at what price and what reward.. Honor? Vengeance? No Self Worth? I mean teenagers are teenagers, no matter what country they are evolving from.

I believe she was faced with the same humanity we are faced with in every country. We need and we need to be needed. She was reaching out to be important and when she failed in an epic way.. she was no longer useful to herself.. it left her open to face the issue of being in enemy territory, and even more vulnerable and here we grow a bit more compassion for her character.

I loved the ending of the movie. Chills on so many levels and if you didn't get them, then you need some deep rooted nature and issues to dissolve within yourself and although I would never want anyone to succeed at these actual acts in reality, it is about time the people get a film where someone finally puts an end to it all. No endings like 2012. No islands to save the lucky innocence. If people want reality, and believe me a movie like this can't get any more true to the bone real, and then they want to complain about how slow and boring it went.. then I say let them have their oblivious ending. It wasn't supposed to have a hero or a fight scene .. running 'lola' or DEA busts. JUST RAW TRUTH. But the wake up call that we are so blind to hate and acts done out of confusion, fear, misunderstanding and pure hatred given from a higher command.. It's a sad and scary thing.. and I can only hope to understand someday why anyone feels compelled to be a suicide bomber. As an American citizen.. I think it's my right to know exactly why they hate us so much to do this? What is truly going on that we aren't being told?? This movie gives me the humanities version..not the stereotypical terroristic "Ironman" version. that was a great movie too. but Not even close on the same level of art!
