Beasts of No Nation Reviews

  • Aug 25, 2019

    "Beast of No Nation" is not an easy movie to watch, instead, this is a horror movie about character studies, an experience far from being enjoyable. This is a hopeless cinema, a force of real picture against the hard side of life. How our situation is so narrow about bad things, about the leader who can't be separated from a criminal and non-sense, and about a cold-blooded pumped up to kick.

    This should have 100%, it is the best movie of all time for me. It tells an amazing story with amazing music and cinematics. It also made me realise how much i am babyfed in the environment i live in in England, and opened my eyes to the reality of what really goes on in the world. please watch it, it can be tough to watch at times but ive watched it 6 times already and i havent got bored yet. You wont regret watching it trust me.

    A very engaging and emotional movie that depocts the horror of war. But the movie drags on with a weak endong that tries to add a bow tie to the story. With little context or explanation on the causes of the war, the movie potentially plays into the stereotypes of viewing Africans as modern day savages.

    This film was on my list for some time, but just knowing the subject matter I knew I needed the right frame of mind for it, and so I braced for what was to come. And as suspected, this brutal, heart-wrenching, and raw tale of a boy soldier forced to fight in a savage civil war was at times terrifying and extremely hard to watch, yet necessary and beautifully told amidst the lush landscape of West Africa. Yes, this film may not be for everyone, but as citizens of the world it is our duty to be informed and bear witness to these real-world atrocities, however haunting and difficult they may be to watch.

    This is a good movie - very powerful, but definitely not for the faint-hearted. I mean it sure wasn't for me.... but I will still give it 4 stars as it was brilliant! The little boy actor is amazing!!!!
