An enjoyable action film with a story based on a factual war zone. I would have liked greater character development and a more thoughtful script but the film held my interest throughout, perhaps because of it unusual setting in Georgia..

Action film with Lots of blood and shooting, etc, based on historical events to some extent, seems quite realistic except female actresses look too much like movie stars=looking too perfect/good for ordinary journalists etc. (Slightly glamorized version of reality in this regard. ) Interesting to see Georgia, we do not often see this country on film. 4 stars for tackling the serious topic of 5 day war taking place in a distant part of the world...
