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 »

Propaganda? Yeah that fits.
2 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I could spend an hour writing a detailed play by play of the movie, but it's easier to say that yes... This is in fact a propaganda movie, so much so it uses the actual Georgian Army as "actors" for this film and using only Georgians as sources for the script.

But with that aside, can it be considered a good movie regardless of it's fictional re-writing of history? Sadly this is also no, it has direct to DVD written all over it, If it hadn't been filmed in Georgia, using Georgian soldiers giving it a authentic look it would have nothing standing this movie up.

I'll end this on a quote from Anna Neistat who works for "amnesty international" "This film portrays Russians and Ossetians as barbaric beasts and Georgians as peace angels." I couldn't sum it up any better Anna.
