5 Days Of War Reviews

Roger Ebert

An action movie scarcely deeper than a Michael Bay extravaganza.

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.

The plot is culled from a variety of "war is hell but I'm covering it anyway" journalist-in-the-field movies but handled with clichéd clumsiness in a script by David Battle and doctored by Finnish writer Mikko Alanne.

Flimsy dramatization of Russia/Georgia conflict fails both as historical re-enactment and as action-flick thrill ride.

As propaganda, 5 Days Of War is unlikely to make a mark, though perhaps the idea of reaching people through would-be blockbusters will.

Harlin's roots show throughout the picture, as he films real-life horrors with a bombast better suited to summer entertainment.

Should appeal more to those who like to watch stuff blow up than understand exactly why the carnage is transpiring.

A hell-on-earth thriller that makes valiant gestures toward geopolitical savvy but gets bushwhacked by vet helmer Renny Harlin's weakness for the Rambo-esque.

The low-budget movie, set during Russia's 2008 invasion of Georgia, is neither innovative nor profound, but it is kinetic, visceral and sometimes moving.

Whether its passion is faked or real is impossible to tell because it is expressed with such pulp-fiction gusto.

Had it rejected the genre's romantic trappings and false heroics more consistently, the movie might've been worth the ride.

Renny Harlin used to make ridiculous movies involving pirates or Sylvester Stallone; now he makes ridiculous movies about Putin's 2008 invasion of the country of Georgia.
