A good recount.
1 August 2004 | by JBAGNASee all my reviews

A very good adaptation of the real events that surrounded the Rainbow Warrior bombing with very good performances all round. Sam Neil proves again what a great actor he is as he plays real life Alan Galbraith. Jon Voight does a particularly good turn as skipper Peter Wilcox.

The French are quite rightly portrayed as the enemy in this film because they are and notably showed how stupid they were leaving trails for the New Zealand police to follow. They after all in particular Galbraith almost toppled the French government with their discoveries a giant killing act indeed.

There are some good scenes in this film some quite surprising. The scene in which the Rongelap man describes his people succumbing to the effects of radiation poisoning following the 1954 15 megaton thermonuclear 'Bravo' shot on Bikini is one of the most disturbing descriptions that I have ever heard. All in all a good film and a good purchase on DVD.
