The truth about The Riot Act is a shocking one. Sure, it's not a movie about World War II, but it is a movie about Vietnam, and it does the war's dirty little secret right. It shows how dirty, unpatriotic, and violent a war can be. In fact, the war is an epic crime, and the war criminals are only the first to be punished for their crimes. The great thing about The Riot Act is that it's based on real-life events. For a film about Vietnam, it is quite restrained. I have to say that some of the effects, especially the effects of the war itself, are far-fetched, but that's probably because the writers went for a realistic view. But, as I mentioned, this is only the beginning of the war criminals, because the filmmakers did not leave out the other side of the story. This is the film about the conspiracy that was the Boston Globe's cover-up of the story of the players that had been beaten up in Vietnam. The film follows them and their followers to Vietnam, and eventually, in America, as well. The only thing missing from this film is the relationship between the Globe and the players' lawyer, who represents them in America. That was an important part of the Globe's cover-up, and the film does a very good job at making it real. I don't want to spoil the movie for you, but, I will tell you that it is a very good movie, especially because it is based on real events. It's a must-see for anyone who thinks about war crimes, or who believes that the war is wrong.

As a cop, I can see why this movie is considered "torture porn." The director, Jim Sheridan, knew how to make the audience feel the tension of the movie. He was able to show us how a cop can be in a stressful situation and not feel the slightest bit of stress. The only problem I have with this movie is the ending. It was pretty bad. It seemed like they were trying to make the ending so that we can get to the next scene. The problem with that is that we didn't know what the next scene would be. I would've liked to have seen a more suspenseful ending, but it was still good. I also liked the movie's pace. It was fast-paced, but still very interesting. I think it would've been a good movie to watch on a rainy day. I would recommend this movie to people who like suspense and thriller movies. I give it a 7/10.

This is a fascinating movie. If you don't watch it you're missing out on something. The stories in this film are just plain interesting and thought provoking. There is so much to think about. I am a teenager and I loved this movie. It made me think and give me ideas on my own.

Oh My God! This film is just incredible! I love this movie so much. I can't understand why there are so many negative reviews on this film. It is definitely worth watching. The acting is very good, the storyline is captivating and it has a very good conclusion. The ending left me with a very pleasant feeling. It was better than I expected. I don't understand why some people have given this film low ratings. There is nothing bad about this film. This film has a very good plot. This film can definitely be compared to Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. If you like the film genre then I highly recommend this film. This film is definitely worth watching.

The Riot Act is a good example of what can be done when a good story and good actors can be brought together. It is just what it is. It was very suspenseful, it kept me guessing until the end. You'll think you know the story, but you don't. I really liked the story, and the actors fit their roles well. I'm not really sure why it is on the bottom 100. I thought the characters were good. If you are thinking of seeing it, I would recommend you do. The only thing I didn't like was the music. It seemed a little over done, and really wasn't needed. I just didn't like it, so I didn't get into it as much.
