A deeply distressing and astounding film from an unexpected source
6 October 2010 | by smartarse-864-986801See all my reviews

I firstly have to say - I have watched a few of Boll's films - and have laughed with most about how he is an awful, laughable, fly-by-night director of cheesy adaptations of game-to-film movies.

Within watching the first 30 minutes of this film - almost immediately and forever that preconception had truly passed.

What Boll and others have achieved here is sheer honesty of the current, and sadly continuing, situation in Sudan - regarding the Jangaweed's ongoing islamofascist genocide of the peoples of Sudan.

This film truly disturbed me in ways no other had, it at once shows the desperation of the indigenous people and the inability for the AU or the UN to do anything to resolve the current issues, something that should resonate in any sensible persons mind.

This film shows the paradox between the violence of faith and the ceaseless happiness, love and essence of survival of a small community.

As others have said, this is not a film for the faint of heart or weak of mind, this is sheer honesty postulated against your preconceptions and prejudices about these issues.

There are NO "good guys" to save the day here. Though a few try. Only good people trying to forge some kind of life from harsh, foreboding nature - violently persecuted by "bad guys" who have no feeling of remorse in what they do.

I know that this is fiction, but the message it represents in its methodical way of presenting fiction as fact is truly honest, respectable and noble.

And that is why I give this film full marks.

This film may mark a time when we remove ourselves from pointless fantasy and self-interested "WOW" factors and use cinema as a reflection on our own evil behaviours.

Uwe Boll now has my ultimate respect as a film maker. As have ALL the actors who worked - without script - in a situation by situation experiential way making this film.

If you shed no tears, if you feel no pang of self-hatred as a human being whilst watching this film, I heartily suggest you remove yourself from the genepool.

Because, you are truly not worthy of being called a human.
