I was lucky enough to see this film in advance, and it opened my eyes to a few very important issues.

Going in, I'd never even heard of the "battle in Seattle," as I was only 13 years old at the time of the protests. But now that I'm aware of the event, it makes me wonder why the controversies with the WTO aren't still being discussed on a larger scale.

This is something that we should all be concerned about, and Stuart Townsend has done us a favor by introducing the issues in a format that is riveting, informative, and inspirational. If there's one thing Battle in Seattle does best, it's that it fires you up to take action any way you can.

Not to mention the great production values, absolutely stellar cast, and intense action sequences (Intense because they're real! Actual footage was used).

I would highly recommend attending a showing of this film with your family and friends, because these matters are important to us all, and Stuart's presentation of them is nothing short of breathtaking.

Promising new director STUART TOWNSEND -- perhaps better known for his starring roles in films such as "A League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" or "Queen of the Damned" -- proves to be an effective storyteller with his skillful and dramatic recreation of events surrounding the historic World Trade Organiation riots in Seattle. Featuring an impressive, but not distracting, all-star cast, "Battle In Seattle" presents an effective and engaging look at the motivations behind those forces who want to control the world's marketplace, with those who will fight for freedom, opportunity and balance in commerce. Regardless of one's political or economic leanings, the film holds the audience by presenting the human-drama endured by participants on both sides of the police lines. Townsend handles his cast with skill and grace, perhaps borne from years of his own experience in front of the camera. Given a more traditionally structured screenplay (and a less controversial topic), you can expect to see something truly profound from Stuart Townsend in upcoming films. Check out "Battle in Seattle," and enjoy!

This was one of the best films I saw in 2008 (yes, I was lucky to be at one of 2 screenings in Los Angeles). Frankly, it was better than any of the Oscar nominated Best Films. It's well-shot, well-acted, well-researched (as I understand it, the factual basis is completely accurate) and well-written. What's amazing is that though the writer-director is a well-established Irish actor, this is the first film he has made. The film is very much an ensemble work, weaving a tapestry of all the players in the Seattle riots (politicians, cops, activists, by-standers). What I particularly liked about this film was just how fair it was to everybody. Nobody is a villain even when they do very bad things (the cops, the mayor). There are very real motivations... people had the best of intentions. It's a complex portrait - nothing like the media coverage given to us. It's a completely entertaining movie, but it's an important film as well. I think this is a movie every patriotic American should see, and by patriotic, I mean those who believe in the U.S. Constitution. But it was financed by a Canadian and had no major studio distribution so thus, nobody knew about it.

the cast was fantastic and the story was told genuinely. this movie demonstrates what a protest is through the eyes of a protester, civilian trying to get from point A to point B, and the police man who is just doing his job. have you ever wanted to know the reality of what people in the middle of a protest go through? this is the movie that tells you the truth, the tragic truth. the protesters fight for what they believe in while the law enforcement are told to hold them back or end their march. their is also the reporter covering what the media wants you to see, and unfortunately there are always those unfortunate civilians trapped in a protest, and become victims.(SPOILERS) a mother loses her unborn child because of the unnecessary strategy and methods police men use and a police man loses his son or daughter because of what a police man did. there are also protesters who feel like every profitable business is the perfect target to get back at the WTO. And unfortunately those irresponsible actions from those few who protest with violence force the police to generalize every protester as being aggressors. and of course that reporter who instead of covering the event experiences what she sees, and her humanity forces her to do the right thing.

based on the reviews below or above, i thought the movie was going to be poor. to my surprise the movie was an incredible experience which made me cry and see the bigger picture of what a protester must go through to get a message across the ears of the civilian judging them at home watching the news and the people that force them to fight in order to make a difference.

I've come to expect movies about political or social justice issues to be watered down. I still enjoy them, because I love the subject matter. "Erin Brokovich" was pretty good. I actually loved it. But "Battle In Seattle" was awesome! Many movies that try to show all sides lose something in their attempt to be fair, but this one is high-octane powerful AND realistic. I'm an activist in Long Beach, California and really admired the protestors' use of strategy. They were so prepared! There was a scene that I will not give away about a broadcast journalist that I wondered about, but loved anyway. Characterization of the mayor of Seattle, caught between many forces, and the police of Seattle, unprepared, overworked, and working long shifts without meals, was also realistic, compassionate without making excuses for their violent behavior. It was really shocking. I met a young woman who had been there and told me how a group of protestors were tear-gassed on a police bus even though they were already seated, handcuffed, and completely unable to defend themselves. It's not in the movie but fits the violence shown in the movie. Of course the protestors were the heroes of the movie. Am I biased? You bet!!
People who stand for truth and justice are owed our bias, in my humble (I wish) opinion. The movie even covers tactics used by violent protestors, and the conflict between them and the largely non-violent other protestors. Another good thing about this movie is that it is not overdramatic. Many Hollywood movies overdo things to be "powerful." This movie is somehow both truly powerful yet also understated (without being precious about it). I suspect that the scecret of this movie's success is the sinceriy of its director.
