Editorial Reviews

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic December 7, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't Judge a Book By The Cover February 7, 2011
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whoa!!! December 19, 2010
By sbda2
Format:DVD
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.

To the other person who complained that this was filmed with no tripod, I think you have missed the whole entire point. I think the Directing is great. It started out with the look and feel of a low budget B-grade movie, but as the story unfolds it truly grabs you.

I think the DVD cover design does a dis-service to the movie. The covers make you think that it's an action or war movie, and people wanting a pure blow/shoot them up kind of action would be disappointed, especially in the beginning. Then you realize what this movie is really about... If you have the patience to sit thru the beginning of the movie, you'll be rewarded, in my humble opinion.

It is a great effort to bring awareness to the subject at hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Sad Truth April 30, 2011
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly powerful November 23, 2010
Format:DVD
Uwe Boll is an odd man. He goes from utterly abysmal video game adaptation fodder (House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark) to socially conscious shockers (Stoic, Rampage) in the blink of an eye. Attack on Darfur, also known as simply Darfur (who knows why it was re-titled, or why the DVD cover makes it look like a lame action/thriller) follows a group of western journalists (among them Billy Zane, Kristanna Loken, Edward Furlong, David O'Hara, and Matt Frewer) on location in Darfur to document the atrocities and genocide taking place. After witnessing it first hand, some decide to go back in an effort to help, and some don't. Attack on Darfur is an uncompromising and unapologetic portrait of true horror, and it pulls no punches. It is slow moving in the beginning and the camerawork is quite shaky, but the end result is something that surprisingly ends up staying with you after the end credits roll. That statement in itself for a film directed by Uwe Boll should be a crowning achievement alone for the much maligned director.
