Intelligent and powerful film about a hunting party of famous war criminal
5 March 2010 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The picture is set during 2000, five years after the Bosnian/Servian war.A successful cameraman named Duck (Terrence Howard), a discredited journalist affected for war named Simon Hunt (Richard Gere) and a youngster correspondent named Strauss (Jesse Eisenberg) undergo an unauthorized mission to find the most wanted war criminal in Servia. They find themselves in serious danger when are chased and mistaken as a CIA agents and their objective, the Fox/ Rodovan Karadzic (Kerekes), the number one war criminal, decides to come after them.

The film is an adventure that embark a motley trio (Gere-Goddard-Eisenberg) posing as a hit squad and looking for a famous war criminal who bears remarkable resemblance to Radovan Karadzic. The story blends action, thought-provoking drama, thrills and some of humor with tongue in cheek . It packs a relentless critical to International Community, as UN, NATO, European countries because they are not only attempt on keeping him whereabout secret, but will oppose anyone who even intent to locate him . However he was arrested in Belgrade on 21 July 2008 and brought before Belgrade's War Crimes Court a few days later. He was extradited to the Netherlands, and is currently in The Hague, in the custody of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia .Karadžić is accused by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia of personal and command responsibility for numerous war crimes committed against non-Serbs, in his roles as Supreme Commander of the Bosnian Serb armed forces and President of the National Security Council of the Republika Srpska. He is accused by the same authority of being responsible for the deaths of more than 7500 Muslims. Under his direction and command, Bosnian Serb forces initiated the Siege of Sarajevo. He is accused of ordering the Srebrenica massacre in 1995, directing Bosnian Serb forces to "create an unbearable situation of total insecurity with no hope of further survival of life" in the UN safe area. In addition, he is accused of ordering that United Nations personnel be taken hostage in May-June 1995.He was jointly indicted by the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia in 1995, along with General Ratko Mladić.

The movie contains an excellent main cast as Richard Gere and Terrence Howard and good secondary cast as Diane Kruger, James Brolin as anchor man , Dylan Baker as CIA agent and of course The Fox/ Karadzic played by Kerekes. It packs a colorful and evocative cinematography by the prestigious David Tattersall .Good and adequate musical score by Rolfe Kent with some Eastern sounds. The flick is professionally written and directed by Richard Shepard. He's writer, producer and a fine cinema director (Matador, Mexico city, Oxygen), though nowadays he exclusively works for television (Ugly Betty, Criminal minds, among others). Rating : Better tan average , well wort seeing. The motion picture will appeal to Richard Gere fans.
