    child and young adults fighting a war against there goverment, a unflinching acount, of what happens in these situations, here its a unnamed country, but situatin has happend many times, young kids forced at gunpoint to join the rebels, even going as far as to kill there parents, or be killed themselves, we follow a grup f rebels, murdering, raping and pillaging across the land, the violence at times raw, with many tence moments invlving firepower, the large cast of unknowns are exellent, and you really hate them, and along with other perfrmances, especially a young girl performer, in a big part, it fits tgether well, the look and production is faultless, and story takes you places, a well made film about war

    Powerful insight into the psyche of child soldiers with a mesmerising central performance and a real driving energy but shrouded in the darkness of the subject material.

    An angry film that will accomplish one thing. Making the viewer angry. Children are taken from the street, taken from their parents and trained for warfare. Children not even teenagers yet, taken by revolting armies and sent out to kill someone. Or rather just anyone. They think you're a goverment agent, they kill you. They kill you in the name of a revolting army that would replace a military regime... With another military regime. Filmed in Liberia, but taking place in an unnamed country as it could be several different countries. There are so many questions and issues in this film and so few answers or even suggestions. The UN are seen on occasion, but it's not economically sound to get involved in the conflict or some such. It's a hard film to like, there is only portrayal and no discussion. But it's also hard not to acknowledge it's merits. I guess since nothing much is done about the problem, it will have a chance of enlightening someone...? If you really don't know about this problem then you should definitely see this, but it will offer you nothing new if you've followed world affairs, and think this is a documentary.
