Bosnian War Crimes and the UN forces make for great drama
13 January 2007 | by (Brisbane Australia) – See all my reviews

** Big spoilers here folks so be warned **

The kiwi's should be very proud of this show, and it's a great shame that, instead of ditching it they just fixed the few shortcomings. But that just proves how stupid the entertainment powers that be really are.

The basic story is about a retired (get out or be chucked out) UN soldier, Sergeant Lucas Crichton and a former UN soldier colleague who try to get to the bottom of a leak to a tabloid newspaper revealing an atrocity from his Bosnian war past. With blood on his hands he turns on his immediate comrades in search of the source of the leak, as more secrets are revealed they come to the attention of the United Nations war crimes trials in The Hague.

The show had a strong cast believable in their roles (not the stretch some of the characters in American shows are) and I would've loved to see where it would all lead.

It probably could've benefited from a few more scenes being shot in daylight though. It kind of went overboard with the atmosphere of dodgy deals only done in the dark. And maybe a more imaginative Camera Director. The camera work is a bit 'busy'.

Had the potential for greatness. But it's still very very good.

I believe the show was replaced by one of those dreadful 'swapping spouses' programmes from the US. Talk about the ultimate insult to replace something that matters with such mindless drivel.
