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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shocking and tragic May 29, 2011
Format:DVD
Someone else has said you will not enjoy this film, and I entirely concur, however that is not a reason to avoid it. It is harrowing, but arguably a vital piece of cinema by virtue of the subject it is trying to bring to the Worlds attention, that is a civil war which has already cost 400,000 lives.

The plot is quite basic in that a team of six journalists on a fact finding mission convince their African Union (AU) minders to let them visit a remote village in Janjaweed held territory. There they meet the villagers who tell them of the brutal realities of living in a country torn apart by conflict.

They interview quite a few of the villagers and we get a glimpse into their lives and history as they tell real human stories that are easily relatable. One reporter comments that they seem almost proud of their historical inert tribal warfare.

As they are leaving they spot a Janjaweed group racing toward the village, they feel if they return the threat of International journalists might convince the Janjaweed to move on and leave the village unharmed. Then they are faced with the reality of the brutal nature of these people who tell them to leave or they will be considered villagers.

The Captain of the AU convinces them to make a hurried exit. However, the realization of what they are ignoring makes two of them return. The true horror of what the villagers had been telling them then unfolds.

This is a gripping, brutal, explicitly violent (both physical and sexual) and harrowing film. It does not even pretend to pull its punches and has a clear message in that if we allow genocide to continue then we have not learnt from history.
