The story of the international gymnastics phenomenon who overcame overwhelming odds to become the first African American ever to be named Individual All-Around Champion in artistic gymnastics at the Olympic Games.
When Mohammed Al-Rehaief, a young Iraqi lawyer, learns that Private first class Jessica Lynch, a 19-year old U.S. soldier from West Virginia, is held as POW in an Iraqi hospital, he wants to find out what a girl the age of his own daughters is doing and why she's being held, both the U.S. troops and his nationalist countrymen start treating him as a suspect- his personal drama is adding itself to hers and countless other ones in post-Saddam Iraq...Written by
Hard to see what Jessica Lynch did to become a hero from this movie. She spent most of the film in a hospital bed.
The battle scene in which she was captured showed her knocked out in an accident while her fellow soldiers battled against overwhelming Iraqi forces. It would be nice to see a movie about those folks and not about a woman who was asleep the whole time.
