This is NOT another formulaic war/action movieBy Jim Bell from South Wales , 27 Mar 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I had to write a review on this movie beacause:
1) You have to be inhuman to view this as a formulaic 'seen it all before' movie
2) It is easy to forget what 'ethnic cleansing' really means - what you would face if you lived in a village being 'cleansed'
3) This is a different Bruce Willis
4) I'd not heard anything about this movie.
This is an amazing movie, and the only one todate where I have immediately started to watch it again, only with the directors commentary on it. This film is not about some political message, but about the brutality faced by many Africans during the conflicts in Rwanda and Nigeria (amongst others) as part of rebel forces carrying out ethnic cleansing.
You will be seriously moved by this film, and yes there is that tiny bit of cheesey 'schmultz' at one point (present in most American films), but it doesn't attract from the heart-thumping tension you will feel in the first 30mins of the film. Go and watch it - this is the best movie I have seen in 2004.

american rescue mission, with unexpected resultsBy KelSmell (185 reviews) from Telford , 07 Nov 2012Very good film and a must see for all Bruce Willis fans. Not as good, as I hoped it would be though. I think that there could have been more to it
Bruce takes on Nigeria - No contestBy veacock (85 reviews) from York , 28 Aug 2012Typical vehicle for Brucie baby .
Plenty of close ups of the man - thinking - macho - working it out . But..... and you know what's coming... Our Man decides against all odds to go against all logic .... Cannot say more without spoiling but ... I really enjoyed it ... Shoot 'em up stuff with a Hollywood ending that doesn't disappoint .
Do yourself a favour and have a look you won't regret it !!!
Well worth a watchBy a customer from Farnborough , 18 Jul 2012What starts off as a supposedly easy evacuation turns into a harrowing example of ethnic cleansing.
The soldiers sent in to help evacuate have to deal with a rag tag group of injured people fleeing the rebel forces that are after them.
The film shows how the American soldiers have to come to grips with the horrors the rebels inflict on anyone in their way.
Good acting, great scenic shots and engaging story line keeps you interested throughout.
Fabulous action packed last half hour.
Well worth a watch

Usual Willis Film.By stuntmanbob (51 reviews) from diss , 03 Apr 2012Its basically an American version of Wild Geese. Bruce Willis lays it on thick especially at the end. Nothing special.
Pretty coolBy gianino (648 reviews) from London , 12 Feb 2012Even though. this type of movies is not excatly my thing (I maninly rented because Monica Bellucci is in it) I quite enjoyed it. The actimg was good, the plot was interesting and the photography was excellent. On top of everything, the guy who plays Red is hot
