Audience Reviews for Wiebo's War

Biopic of ecoterrorist Ludwig Wiebo. What is particularly interesting is the take of the politicians on Wiebo's actions and how they successfully slant the media in a particular direction. The fact of the matter is that his grand acts are not beyond the realm of possibility for any individual encountering the horrors of what befell his family.
