Anyone who (like me) is a sucker for 80s political thrillers set in troubled foreign lands will find this a must-watch, in the same class as The Killing Fields, Missing, Salvador and The Year of Living Dangerously.

This is the kind of movie that almost always feels phony, but "Under Fire" feels real.

Spottiswoode captures the random terror of the war zone, the press corps's acute journalistic instinct for story and survival, and the appalling moral dilemmas that reporters must confront.
