User Reviews

An intense story of loyalty and love no matter the cost.
7 January 2018 | by vblansettSee all my reviews

In first ten minutes a viewer will be asking "Is the Journalist crazy?" The story is full of tension, intense action along with heartbreaking and eye opening discoveries. The movie is story of a rescue mission full of surprising twist and turns. In the last minutes the viewer will find the answer to the first question. The story has a very surprising twist that leads to an unexpected emotional experience. SInjar is a very well written script. Technically the movie is as well done as any Academy or Golden Globe movie.
