I initially became interested in this film because it was reviewed and recommended on ChurchMilitant.tv as a picture that positively portrays the Catholic Church (rare in today's mainstream media) and because it has an interesting, action-filled story line. Admittedly, it was not the best action movie I've ever seen. The action tended to be of a slower pace. The movie was more about the selflessness of the heroes than about wow-ing the audience with car chases or shoot-em-up fight scenes, though there are a some of those.

My favorite aspect of the film is the true-to-life portrayal of the heart of a military man in Bruce Willis's character. I have had the privilege of knowing a fair number of military officers, and their kind and generous spirits coupled with their unwavering readiness to give their lives for the good and the beautiful is one of the greatest inspirations in my life. I was glad to see these qualities of the best-of-the-best military man portrayed in the movie. Most people never know about the sacrifices these men make and it was refreshing to see it portrayed in a beautifully and faithfully written film.

I would recommend this picture to anyone who wants to know the noble heart of a military man, to anyone who wants to see the courage and total abandonment of self of Catholic missionaries in the field, and to anyone who wants a great action movie that has a plot with substance and intellectually-satisfying dimension.

A story of the men behind the scenes in a country torn by Civil War. How one tribe in Africa can turn against another tribe is amazing, and the horrific things man will do to man. Bruce Willis gives a great performance of a man who has seen and been in wars, and turns from stoic to a man who finds his humanity again. Great movie.

This is a GREAT movie with a Fantastic Cast of Characters! Africa is a forgotten continent until something of value is needed. The best part of this movie was the storyline and significance of displaying quality entertainment of the world to view. Willis plays the role of a hero in the movie but, in real life, he was daring in taking this role. This is his most meaningful movie of all time. I was emotionally involved in every moment of the movie and I wished it (the storyline) was not true. I really enjoyed the viewing experience on through the Blueray Disc. Wow, So Real!

Amazing movie. Absolute tear jerker. Plot is unbelievable, acting is great. One of my favorite war movies of all time.

Tears of the Sun has lots of military action–a real Vietnam War era "shoot 'Em up," a la Rambo flick featuring helicopters in the jungle, machine guns, mortars, bad guys, good guys, and F-15s screaming overhead. Whatever shortcomings the film may have had in terms of storyline or predictability were more than compensated for by Bruce Willis's performance. Pay attention to the rating, though, because due to excessive blood, guts, and violence, it's not for small children.

Great movie and acting. You will enjoy this movie dealing with Africa and how our government treats third world peoples and countries. Of coarse you would have to know how the U.S. really treats people and other nations to really understand the thread that runs through this movie.
