Storyline

Islamic terrorists hijack an airplane with 164 passengers, planing to steer it into a football arena filled with 70 000 people. Major Lars Koch decides against the orders of his superiors and the laws of his country to shoot the airplane which leads to the death of all passengers. Now he is charged for murdering 164 people and the audience takes the role of the jury, deciding the difficult legal and moral question whether it can be considered a crime to kill reletively less innocent but moribund people in order to save tens of thousands.

What if ...
28 December 2017 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

A German movie that kind of tries to make a case for and against measures politicians and military can or should take. Or the opposite, with the value of life always being on display. Not to mention morality and humanity. While this subject is touchy to say the least, the handling of the same has some flaws, especially in the acting department.

The movie does seem to have been made to be viewed and make the viewers judge. As in decide where the movie should go. That is what the beginning is suggesting when one actor of the main cast, is talking straight into the camera. And towards the end you will understand what this was about. Now there are arguments to be made for the defense and the prosecutor. It's a shame some aspects seem to be forgotten. But worry not about technical terms, because the movie will lay them out for you ... if only this didn't feel like TV movie of the week ... It did have more potential for sure
