Live from Baghdad Reviews

    just a steaming turd of a movie. It could not be more boring. There is no humor, no suspense, no drama, nothing good. An absolute turd.

    This was an interesting look behind the scenes of CNN's efforts to bring the 1991 bombing of Baghdad into the homes of TV viewers. It brings to light the heroic sacrifices made by journalists, camera crews and producers to keep us informed while working in hostile dangerous areas. A good effort from Keaton, & Carter, help make this a really decent film..

    It was fun. Good story of how CNN lucked out and was able to report as Baghdad was being bombed. Not great, but entertaining. The chemistry between Keaton and Bonham Carter was great.

    Flawed in it's frenetic editing and pacing issues, but an engaging story and strong performances from Keaton and Bonham Carter keeps this HBO production to be an interesting watch.

    Really enjoyed this - despite it being a late night movie I had never heard of before. Interesting to see how CNN went from 'little station that could' to global news organisation based on exclusive Iraq war coverage.

    I couldn't even tell this was a made for tv movie; that's why I love HBO. Great cast, really enjoyed the film.
