The movie states the events took place in 1980 but in one of the scenes, they used the Duran Duran song "Hungry Like A Wolf" which was actually released two years later in 1982. The character Sammy sings the words to the song while strumming a guitar around a fire. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Kabede Bimro: [narrating] My country is once again broken. Death is spreading. The new government is waging a war against the rebels. The rivers again have turned red with blood. Thousands dead. Millions disfigured, dishonored, displaced.

Solid Netflix flick
31 July 2019 | by darcekSee all my reviews

Almost missed on this film,because some people reviewed it as political propaganda instead of really reviewing the film itself.. Haters got to hate..

The real review is this film is solid(acting,directed etc),enjoyable watching,and recaptures some important history.

The problem with this film I felt most of the plot was repeated in other films which kept it from been really great hence gave it only a 7. Nothing original here,except the true story behind the movie that inspired its creation.
