User Reviews

"The only thing they killed is our fear."
21 November 2018 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

You have here a true, authentic masterpiece in the line of TIMBUKTU or the Tv series BLACK CROWS, but told from another angle. The tale of a bunch of female fighters against ISIS brutality, barbary. Female warriors, amazons of a new kind, women who has nothing to lose, except letting ISIS monsters continue their evil work. That's really a poignant, gripping story about sacrifice, struggle and hate. But also the burning desire to exterminate the indescribable. This story could ahve been a great TV series, so that so many supporting characters may be better described. Coincidence or not, the final part of the film takes place on November Friday the 13th 2015; Black Friday for France, with the Paris and Bataclan killings.
