Yeah. Pretty good. Putin is a bastard.

It is ironic that Russia and Israel have both adopted violence and oppression that characterized the Nazi regime a half century earlier. That irony is compounded in that the United States taxpayer is supporting Israel. The former USSR went broke due to their chicanery in Afghanistan...the graveyard of Empires. The madness continues with a draft dodger named tRUMP extolling the virtues of Putin the horrible. This movie is a hard watch, but it is more important to see than the banal garbage on television. The dogs of war and men of hate have no idea what is in store for them on Judgement Day, but it will include wailing and knashing of teeth.

A heartbreaking depiction of war. There's not too much information in the way of explaining the politics behind Russia's invasion into Georgia, but nonetheless I think this film thoroughly depicts the behind the scenes of war that you don't witness watching the news. An appropriate take on the escalation of war through the lens of reporters and journalists. I found it interesting that horrific scenes of brutality were juxtaposed with classical music.

An interesting film that documents the 2008 invasion of the Republic of Georgia by Russia told from the eyes of daring war correspondents.

Andy Garcia gives a spot on performance as Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance.

Good ,..but could have been better. More political context and background maybe. And a story more focused on that.

Very biased story

Bland script and predictable plot. No creativity. The producers/directors would've done a better job if they'd funded a documentary complete with interviews, footage, photos, and an historical background of political 'arguments' between Russia and Georgia. And I definately did not approve of the animal cruelty; totally unnecessary!

Good - What's lacking is star power save Andy Garcia (i.e. famous actors), the director focuses his attention on a solid script and great special effects to represent the 5 days of war between the country of Georgia and Russia. Well made film.
