Anti Isis fighters
9 October 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Last year, we had on the big screen LES FILLES DU SOLEIL, another feature speaking of the same topic, women soldiers fighting against the barbary of ISIS. I prefered the other one, especially for the end, In this film, the ending is too lousy, too smotth, in the pure Hollywood tradition; for the sissies. I prefered the other film, also made by a female director. It was more dark, brutal and compelling. But in this one, acting and directing are more than OK, the cast awesome. I won't say this film is too simplist, manichean. IT MUST BE. How could it be other, with such ISIS garbage, and barbary. Even if we had seen the female fighters torturing ISIS prisoners, behaving in the same manner as those criminals, how could we see ISIS other than the bad guys, the evil plague which the earth should be got rid of? I would also say this movie is too didactic, but it must be, to explain how these ISIS monster proceed to spread terror. This film is too simplistic but deserves to be seen.
