Storyline

The struggles and achievements of six individuals bring to light the situation in Darfur and the need to get involved. From a UCLA graduate in Los Angeles, California, to a Darfurian woman who joins rebel forces, to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague, to a United Nations humanitarian on the ground in Sudan, to an internationally known actor and activist, and finally to a community leader in a West Darfur refugee camp, the film portrays the efforts of six people responding to a humanitarian tragedy unfolding before our eyes. The film explores the Darfur conflict through the first-hand experiences of Don Cheadle, Hejewa Adam, Pablo Recalde, Ahmed Mohammed Abakar, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, and Adam Sterling.

Weak: Watch "The Devil Came on Horseback"
18 June 2008 | by Hint523See all my reviews

I hate to be slightly cocky, but I feel like I am well-knowledged on Darfur and I am passionate on saving it, and ideally I would like to make a documentary on Darfur. I recently rented The Devil Came on Horseback (for the sake of typing DCoH) and Darfur Now in a span of about three weeks. I loved DCoH. It was a perfect documentary. It showed us everything, left us with a sense of frustration and urgency, which is exactly what Darfur is going through.

Darfur Now is solid, but lacks any new substance. We know people are active, and while some of the people are interesting in the movie, others are fairly boring. Don Cheadle and the other guy from California bring nothing new to the table. The other four stories are interesting, but nothing ever happens to any of them. For example, with the female rebel, we hear her story and see her walking around. That's it.

Plus, I know I would feel confused if I knew little on the subject. It is geared at an already knowledgeable audience, so those who don't know anything would most likely feel lost.

Overall, it is okay, but nothing special. Instead, i recommend The Devil Came on Horseback, a fantastic documentary on Darfur.
