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.
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.Read more ›
The genocide by the Bashir regime in Sudan and the Janjaweed mass murderers has been swept under the carpet for too long.
Movies like this, depict events as they really happened-this movie does not exaggerate The atrocities it depicts really took place across Darfur and resulted in the genocide of 300 000 Black Africans and the displacement of 1 500 000 more.
The rapes, the murders, the mutilations, the torture, the burnings are all taken from real eyewitness accounts.
A group of Western journalists are faced with the dilemma of whether to leave Sudan and report on what they have witnesed, or to retunr to the village in Darfur they have visited to try to stop the massacre of its people by the Janjaweed.
The murder of the villages entire population is not for the faint hearted. It may scar you but you need to see it because these events really did happen
Women were raped, children burned alive, people mutilated while still alive, all this took place.
similar to Holocaust movies which reflect the horrors carried out by the Nazis, this movie cannot be ignored.
It poses many questions.
Why has the world ignored this genocide and allowed it to take place, focusing only on fashionable politically correct causes like the Palestinians?
What leads to such inhumanity by humans to other humans. Why has Bashir not been brougth to justice and is protected by among others the South African government , Iran and the international left? how should one caught up such a situation as these Western journalists react. How would you react if you were them?Read more ›
