Attack On Darfur, which stars Billy Zane, Edward Furlong and Kristanna Loken, is the story of a group of Western journalists in Sudan who visit a small village to gather footage and interviews in hopes of reporting on the atrocities they have seen. When they hear that the Janjaweed are heading towards the village, they are confronted with the dilemma of whether to run for safety or to stay behind and attempt to avert the villages slaughter.

I did my Term Paper last year on Darfur and I felt obligated to watch this movie. I bought and watched it and was very surprised: the movie is extremely, if not entirely accurate. The American media actors serve as a gateway to get the actual refuges to tell their story in a fluid manner, without getting the viewer detached from the movie. The movie takes a while to start, but once it does you might find yourself wanting it to stop. Remember though, it hasn't stopped in reality.
The movie is brutal. The movie is genocide at its fullest. The few that go back to fight the Janjaweed serve as the American conscious: we want to kill the Janjaweed and save the people. The movie is more of a docudrama than anything in that it merely depicts a vicious attack of a town in Darfur, with some side notes about the AU's involvement and Al Bashir's involvement. Keep in mind that their are several rapes and several infanticides, but that is the state of things I am afraid.
Good job Uwe Boll at telling the viewers what is going on in the world. Hopefully some will find the message and try to do something to help.

This film's storage case depicts what appears to be a typical "shoot-em-up" mindless action film. Don't let that fool you. While it is fairly graphic and there is a bit of gun play...althought not by actor Billy Zane, the film is clearly intended to educate the audience on the ethnic violence in yet another failed African state. The character of the Janjaweed Militia leader is especially effective at quietly detailing the reasons for the conflict and the AU military escort officer the hopelessness of being a peacekeeper with few resources and a limited mandate. I highly recommend it.

I write this review within the parameters of the facts that I know this director has a history of mega-violent pictures, and that I have never seen any of them except this one. I also have never seen "Hotel Rwanda" or "Sometimes in April," which are two movies similar to this one in that they both cover real-life African genocide. I did see, however, another very violent movie about African genocide called "Tears From The Sun."

That being said, within the limitations of my movie-viewing experiences, I must say, without exaggeration, that this is simply the most savagely violent movie I have ever seen!!!

The backdrop of the movie is a group of western journalists who visit a Darfurian village and interview residents about past attacks by the government-backed militia called the Janjaweed. However, as they are leaving, the Janjaweed return. That is the first half of the movie.

The second half of this movie, where the Janjaweed attack the village, and the powerlessness of the journalists to stop it, is where the worst savagery I've ever seen on film happens.

This is not a mindless action movie to "just sit back, put your feet up and kill time with."

A number of the actors in this movie are real-life Darfurian survivors, and much of the dialogue in this movie is unscripted.

Although the village in question and all of the characters are fictional, the movie itself accurately reflects the real-life genocide and the tactics used by the the Janjaweed to implement it.

As horrifying as this film is, I must say it is a very well-done film. The use of violence in a movie is not gratuitous or improper when it serves a good story, and, in the case of this movie, accurately depicts real events for the world to see and react to.

I feel guilty giving any movie which attempts to show the world a major genocide less than 5 stars. The movie is about a group of generic western journalists wanting to report on the genocide in Darfur. From what I gathered from the movie, the genocide is a race war consisting of Arabs Muslims killing black Muslims. The Arab Muslims known as the Janjaweed blame the West for the genocide because they (the West) want to give rights to black people.

The journalists go into a village and interview the villagers so we get to know them. Then after they leave they espy the Janjaweed headed toward the village. Some of the reporters decide they need to go back and "help." In order to show realism, or due to budget concerns, the camera shots all appear to be hand held. While the motion isn't as jerky as amateur filming, I found it noticeably annoying. Whatever political statement the movie was trying to make was lost to the amateur film making.

While there were moments when you feel the intensity and rage, I found them to be short lived, partly because of the western journalist simply drank themselves into a stupor after the village attack, a scene shown at the beginning of the movie.

Oh those poor people, pass me another bottle of Jack.

Genocide, a word coined by Raphael Lemkin, who as he studied unspeakable human behavior of the past couldn't avoid even greater atrocities happening in his own backyard in his own present, couldn't avoid yet greater atrocities in his future either.

In the Twenty-First century, never-mind the last or the last millennium, in this new and so-called modern century, humanists, socialists, and genocide-academicians alike could do NOTHING themselves but observe, "Look, it's happening again."

Could billions and billions of people of the world be found guilty for not avoiding the genocide in Darfur?

In their defense, in defense of billions of people not doing anything, genocide, when its causes have reached that critical point of starting it, cannot be stopped.

Real crime is the pregenocide.
