Newt's movie review

I found parts of this movie difficult to watch, partly because of the subject matter (ethnic cleansing and torture) and partly because of the images. It really was horrifying.

Willis puts up an amazing performance and the rest of the cast does their job well. The scenery, rain and music successfully set the tone for this film. It is difficult, almost painful to watch, but really very good.

Ripley's movie review

The story is interesting and the acting is good but, yes, it's a hard movie to watch. Don't let that stop you though. It's very, very good.
