Inspiring and educational
2 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A very inspiring film that is also very well shot, it will keep you glued to the screen throughout. It gives a history of a conflict, but instead of faceless statistics, it focuses on one young man's story, making it so much easier to relate to. I couldn't help crying during some parts, and laughing during others. War child does send you on an emotional roller coaster, but it's definitely worth it. The movie makes you want to dance along, sing along, and then go out and do something worthwhile.

The music is great and the shots of Southern Sudan are breathtaking. War child is definitely worth watching, and then watching again. Two thumbs up.
