Trivia

The Georgian military supplied ground force, armored vehicles, weapons and helicopters for use in the film. This allowed many battle scenes and crowd formations to be staged without the need to expand or supplement them digitally. See more »

Goofs

News announcer quotes Vladimir Putin that "the loss Georgia was a major geopolitical tragedy of the twentieth century" (apparently meaning the South Ossetian War 1991-92). Putin has never said that. In fact, in 2005 he referred to collapse of the Soviet Union the main geopolitical tragedy of the twentieth-century. See more »

Overall a good picture!
26 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having read some of the previous reviews blasting this picture as "Un-Authentic" and therefore a terrible picture, I have to say that the naysayers are wrong from my point of view. I know of NO WAR FILM that is factual in every detail. Some label this as propaganda....so what? Most of the War Films coming out of the US during WWII were propaganda. ALL Germans were Nazis and ALL Japanese were bloodthirsty little savages.

I found this picture to be a rather good action film, very authentic from the "War" point of view. Having spent 10 years in the TV News Biz as a field cameraman, I was in agreement with all their actions as reporters. I thought the plot was very plausible, though some what predictable, but again, so what? I was entertained and unlike some of the reviewers I was moved in places by the actions of the characters. And to lambaste actors for "Overacting" in a war film is like saying down hill skiers go to fast. I was a good picture and overall I liked it!
