Ao contrário de insultos como Falcão Negro em Perigo e Fomos Heróis, o protagonista deste filme investe numa causa nobre. E isso faz toda a diferença.

I'm ultimately recommending Tears of the Sun and notably its first three-quarters, because even with its oversimplified and falsely optimistic ending, the film hits upon an issue people need to start exploring.

Dramatizes exactly the kind of life-and-death choices we all dread having to make, but in a story where the choices are obvious.
