Critic Review - Globe and Mail

Harlin's film begins with the familiar adage that truth is the first casualty of war. Usually that phrase precedes an attempt to revive the patient, not bury it deeper in the rubble of propaganda.

Truth is THE TRUTH! What's wrong with propaganda of truth? I know what really happened and I don't mind of watching true events being made as movie for wider, International audience. When you make a documentary about war crimes, you receive award, but if it's a full feature film, then you're screwed! What kind of a judgement is this?

Human Rights watch couldn't have given ANY accurate information, as they never were allowed by Russians to enter in a conflict zone! Would you like to talk to them now? You'll hear a different story, pal. Russia spent lot of money putting International media in their pockets. Against this Georgia had no other choice but to make a movie to show International audience. How else could they confront such a mighty aggressor? Especially when we (the West) crapped in our pants in front of the world and refused to help our allies in the region. We chickened out and started to blame Georgians, technically helping Russians in annexing most of Georgian territories! You should be ashamed, little fella.
