    This movie is definitely one to remember! So deep in a subtle way like gosh it’s good! The cast is awesome and so is the script. If you are someone who thinks that all Kristen Stewart does is show no emotion and only plays damsels in distress then you should watch this movie right now!!

    Great performances, powerful story. The film will stick with you. Unfortunately this is extremely believable as well.

    Incredible movie. Kristen Stewart acted just perfect. Payman Maadi is a great actor that he had proven time and again. If anyone wants to see his acting, watch his movie "Separation".

    Camp X-Ray tem uma proposta interessante, arriscada e nos leva a refletir sobre muitas coisas. Desde o principio, o filme tenta construir sua personagem principal, e devo dizer que estou surpreso aqui. Como qualquer pessoa que já assistiu algum filme da saga crepúsculo, é completamente natural que haja um certo tipo de preconceito. Mas ainda bem que isso não comprometeu minha experiencia, já que Kristen Stewart entrega o necessário para que a personagem evolua na trama. Pontos como Insegurança, medo, exclusão social, ceticismo as próprias crenças, adaptação ao lugar - e seu próprio modus operandi que leva facilmente a loucura para ambos os lados, excitando ainda mais um ódio mutuo - foram bem abordados pelo roteiro e pela própria interpretação da Stewart. A mesma deixa a desejar em algumas cenas que exigem um retorno mais dramático, mas nada que deslegitime todo o seu trabalho. A trama gira em torno de dois personagens: Amy Cole [Nova no meio Militar] e Ali Amir [Detento há 8 anos]. A relação dos dois é muito bem estruturada ao redor do filme, seja com diálogos de humanização, planos comparando a rotina de ambos, ou até situações constrangedoras. Devo dar um certo destaque a direção, pois muito aqui é dito apenas com a cinematografia. A discussão sobre os métodos penitenciários é válida, e o contraste inicial sobre a convenção de genebra e o uso da palavra "detentos" é muito interessante para entendermos a mentalidade de muitos militares que estão por ai. Também entra em debate a mudança de comportamento em grupos sociais - e as possíveis consequências de quem se nega a vender seus valores - e até mesmo as razoes, até então obscuras, do estado prendendo pessoas por possíveis ligações com grupos terroristas que muitas vezes não existem. Ao que tudo indica, o Amir era inocente e mesmo que ele fosse embora, um histórico de 8 anos numa prisão já era o suficiente para acabar com sua vida.

    This movie was excellent! I watch-streamed it a couple of years ago on the internet and it was SO captivating, thought-provoking, realistic, touching, emotional, and strongly acted. The plot is super simple, but it's executed very well. Kristen Stewart's acting was great in this movie! Kristen IS a good actress, you morons. Putting that aside, the plot of this film is a female guard named Amy Cole (Kristen Stewart) in a Guantanamo Bay facility slowly forming an unlikely friendship with one of the longtime detainees (Payman Maadi). Detainees barely have rights and only have very few of them. They have a right to eat little bits of food, drink only a little bit of water, use the restroom, and read a book in their cells, that's pretty much it I think. Much later on in the movie, the detainee claims to have been arrested and locked up for life for a horrible crime he was mistakenly accused of, but of course no one would believe him, except probably Amy, who eventually ends up believing his innocence. It is a nice, realistic, touching, and emotional film that is underrated and it is a must watch movie. Rating: 7.5/10

    An impactful movie with a message. It spoke of the truths that people have been totally oblivious to including me. The performance that both stewart and maadi delivered were beyond words. A must see movie!

    the plot is flat and not well developed. In general it is boring, only in the end it becomes a little interesting, although not much

    Kristen Stewart plays guard Amy Cole, a young marine from a small town who joined the military to escape her life. The movie centers around the conflict of her growing relationship with a prisoner, Moaadi, who has been in Gitmo for eight years. This film affected me very deeply in a way I was not expecting. Kristen Stewart and Peyman Moaadi deliver stunning performances which take your breathe away. You really feel for this guy and Stewart has never been more convincing. I thought it would be a stretch to imagine her as a tough soldier and it is kind of surreal yet she manages to create a credible person out of the role. Her emotional distress as the contradictions of her job as camp guard begin to overwhelm her, is very powerful and a pleasure to watch. The independent film is excellent. It is well written and engaging, as well as caries a great story, tone, and pace with it. A a pair of impressive performances from Kristen Stewart and Peyman Moaadi.
