120 - Inspirational
19 January 2011 | by dilarasdadSee all my reviews

This film is a drama, and quite worthy of my 9-star rating. It's quite deserving of ten stars, but I think that if there was focus on the lives of some of the particular boys, it would have toppled many Academy Award films. But to focus on a few would most likely take away the true sacrifice of the many.

Nevertheless, the acting was excellent. It's a story of patriotism and sage topped off with a dose of emotional reality. Once I got past the tears, I managed to applaud this feature. All I can say is that the viewer will not be disappointed by this historical tale of a true heroic journey of '120'.

The directing and the location photography were outstanding. I applaud the crew.
