In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin (Rosamund Pike) is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless, while constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable sipping martinis with London's elite as she is confronting dictators. Colvin sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she's witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her -- along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan) -- to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs.

I really liked this movie, as it was a great story of the lives of the main characters. I was impressed with the performances of all the main players. The cast did a great job with the scenes they were given. The story was good. The battles were realistic, and the character development was great. I am also a big fan of George Clooney and he was wonderful as the lead character. I have seen him in several movies, and he is one of my favorite actors. The story was great. It was a great story of a man who was in Vietnam as a pilot. I really liked this movie. It is a great story of the Vietnam war and the lives of these men. I recommend it for all who enjoy great historical movies.

This movie starts out on a fairly realistic level, giving us the usual characters of Sergeant Lee, Private Porter, Corporal Haddad and Private Layton. They are all just ordinary young men, with a simple life, where they live in the outskirts of London. Lee is a former soldier, who has a love for girls and is generally considered the worst of the bunch. The sergeant is his younger brother. Porter is the black sheep of the family, who doesn't seem to fit in. The lieutenant is the kind of guy that can't really do anything without his men. The Private is a young man who goes out to get drunk and has a problem with getting into trouble. The Corporal has an unusual passion for books, and a strange interest in music. And then we have Private Layton, who seems to have a personal vendetta against Private Porter. The movie is not without its flaws. We are left wondering what the hell Private Layton is doing in the jungle. The end of the movie doesn't quite have a point. But I still give it a 7/10. It was a bit different than the usual Hollywood war movies, and it was interesting to see how the soldiers felt about each other. The movie is not overly violent, but is still gruesome. It is a good movie, but could have been better.

The story of the infamous Baker's Cross Raid is a relatively new one, and the movie (though obviously portraying an inaccurate version) covers most of the basics. The movie was filmed at the same time as the aforementioned "At War With The Axis" (which was filmed by the same people, but not really a true war story). While "At War With The Axis" may have been an accurate account, it was not a war movie, and was more about the search for the men who were captured. The movie does a good job of showing the struggles and morale of the men during that period of time. I would have liked to have seen a little more focus on what the men did after the war, but I was able to make the movie not too boring. I thought the acting was good. I especially liked Max Von Sydow's portrayal of Captain Edward Tully, and was impressed by the performance of Sean Bean. I also thought John Hurt and Max von Sydow were great. All in all, a good movie, with an interesting story and good acting.

The story of John Lennon's life and the people around him is well-told, although some of the details are a bit thin. The movie is about John's struggle with being a different kind of person. In the last scene, when he is being taken from the hospital, his face is quite familiar to me, as it was in the movie. The actors in the movie were very good. In particular, Michael Clark Duncan was excellent as John, but the movie could have been better. The music and the colors are very well done, although some scenes could have been better. The movie was very slow-paced, but I think that was necessary, as the story was rather complicated.

For those of you who hate war documentaries, I suggest you avoid this one. It's too bloody for you. I think this movie is about Vietnam, the war that left over 200,000 dead, and it's about a small group of Americans in that war who lived in that war, and the few they left behind. The movie is well made, and the cast did a good job. I also think it was done well, and in a way that wasn't preachy. It was just a story of life, and how these people lived it. It was not a documentary, which is why I gave it a 7. I also liked the ending, I also liked the film's message, but I also have to say I was not very impressed with the film.

This movie was based on the novel of the same name by Daniel Ellsberg. It is a highly political and controversial book, and should be seen by all who know about the Vietnam war. I don't think it is a complete rip-off, but a few small details are wrong. The movie shows Vietnam as a complicated, full of wars, but not just one war. It shows the lives of the people and how they die. The movie is full of romance and political debates, and also shows the killing of a soldier. It is not only a good movie, but a good documentary about the Vietnam war. It shows the violence, the rape and the torture. I think the movie is good, but I think the information about the war is wrong. I hope the director changes the information in the movie.

A Private War was made in the early 90s by UK Director Ian Holm. It tells the story of the two young soldiers in the French paratroopers, who are dropped on the beaches of Normandy for the first time. The film is shot in an authentic 1940's style and shows how the horrors of war were real for the men in the trench. This is a very emotional film and the final scenes are very powerful. Ian Holm is not a great director, but this film is his best film so far. It is a story that is very close to his heart and he does a great job of creating a realistic war film. The cast is all excellent and the performances are all great. The only real downside is that there is a bit too much going on, but it doesn't matter because the story is powerful and emotional. This is a very well made film and a great film about the realities of war. It is worth watching.

If you like an accurate depiction of WWII, if you are an admirer of Mark Wahlberg, or if you just like to see a great film, then this movie is for you. The movie is very accurate in it's portrayal of what the soldiers of the Army actually went through during WWII. The story is based on a book by Andy Weir and that book is one of the best I have read. I found the movie to be very realistic, which I love. The acting is amazing, Wahlberg and the other actors did an amazing job, and the actors portrayed the story very accurately. I give this movie a 9/10.

An excellent movie for anyone who enjoys history and war. The story is true to life and the actors really bring it to life. It is well done and the performances are outstanding. I have been a fan of Tom Hanks ever since I saw his work in "Harrison's Flood". I was so excited to see him in this film. The same can be said for Cate Blanchett. It was good to see Blanchett back on the silver screen after a few years off. The movie is shot in such a way that you can see the many points of view of the soldiers. There is a lot of great photography. The scenery is beautiful and the special effects are done very well. All in all, I give this movie a 7 out of 10.

This is an excellent and sensitive portrayal of the second world war, a period of historical importance that is often under-explored. I was pleased to see that this film made no reference to the pre-war years, for which I am sure many people will feel very angry, but it also avoids many of the pitfalls of war documentaries, for which I think many other films are inferior. The acting was superb throughout, especially the two British actors who played the American pilots. In particular, the acting of the pilot played by Robert Redford and the US fighter pilot played by Paul Bettany was superb. I especially liked the scene where Redford tells Bettany about his flying school and explains that, unlike other pilots, he has not been given a chance to prove himself. Bettany is able to feel sorry for his former student, and there is a genuine sense of sadness that emerges when he finally gives him the boot. I have not seen the other "American" films about the war, but from what I have read they were all very good, and I am sure I will be looking out for more.

The film is based on a true story, about the death of a war hero. The film is very well made, and very entertaining. The cast are good, and the director knows how to use his camera to capture a scene and tell a story. The story is very well told, and is very gripping. The film is very depressing, but the director has a way to make it bearable. The film has many twists and turns, and there are a few scenes that are a bit dark, but the director does well to keep the movie upbeat. The music is great, and the cinematography is really well done. This is a film that is very different from the usual war film. The film is very dark, and the director has a way to get the viewer to feel the emotions of the characters. I do not think the film is that good, but it is an enjoyable movie, and I do recommend it. I do think that the film is not as good as the others, but it is still very good, and worth a watch.

This is a very interesting and at times touching film about war. It is a simple story of two soldiers who are determined to win a war that they could not win themselves. It is not a simple war story, it is a personal story about two men who, when their lives are in danger, will do anything to win their freedom. There is a great performance by Morgan Freeman. He plays a man who is afraid of death, yet he can not help but do what he is ordered to do. This film is definitely worth seeing, and it should be seen by anyone who is interested in war.

I have been a fan of Tom Hanks since I saw him in "The Rainmaker" (1953) and I loved him in "The Best Years of Our Lives" (1961) and "A Streetcar Named Desire" (1967) but this movie was just too much for me. The reason is that the film was too long. There were too many scenes and not enough story. The story was too much of a conflict between two brothers. It was hard to get into the story. The film was not that good. The movie was too long and the story was not very good. I don't think that the film was that good but it was still a good movie.

The movie was just fine, it just didn't have a storyline or any real point. I was also bored during the first half, the first act was very boring. The second act however, was a very good one. It just went on for another 2 hours, and then the movie was over. There were many scenes that made me laugh. But for some reason the movie was very slow. The last act was also boring. It was very slow. It was a good movie though, it was not a bad movie at all.

I am a fan of the War movies. This is a great example of the genre. It is an interesting story, but the script is a little bit too long. It could have been shorter and it would have been more engaging. The actors are great. I also like the direction and the cinematography. This movie is not perfect, but it is very good. I rate it 7/10.

This movie is an awesome movie to watch it in the cinema with your friends and family. It has a great story and a very good direction. The acting is great from the actors and the storyline is very well developed. The movie has a very good message and a very good ending. The movie is about a soldier's experience in a war in Afghanistan and the people who he met along the way. The film is extremely good and it is very exciting to watch it. The film is a very good film that I would recommend you to watch. It is a very good film to watch and I would definitely recommend you to watch it.

I went into the theater with my expectations of a classic war movie, which is what I got. This is a very well made film, and the cinematography is top notch. It's not a perfect film, but it's a very good one, and definitely a movie to see.

What a beautiful movie! For a very long time, I was struggling to find a movie that would grab me and keep me engaged for more than a few hours. When I found this one, I was a little reluctant but it was just as good as the first. It kept my attention the entire time. The story of a British soldier who is forced to fight for his country while in the middle of a conflict, which had an element of revenge and which also showed the tragic effect of war on the individual soldier. I felt that I was watching a documentary about the war in Iraq, but it was also a very good war movie. This one had the benefit of a very interesting plot and the cinematography was beautiful. It had an extremely well cast. There was no wasted time in this film. It was long, but not boring. The camera work was very beautiful and the acting was excellent. It was very hard to imagine that there would be an American, British, Canadian, French, Russian, etc. soldier in this movie. It was very realistic and it made the movie more realistic. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys war movies, documentaries, or just good movie-making. I hope that everyone enjoys it as much as I did.

I love this film and I believe it should be shown more. I believe that all of us are at war and this film should be shown to all of us. This is the story of how the 4 brothers came to be. They were recruited to be soldiers and trained in the war. The stories of the 4 brothers are not only true but they are real and so is the movie. This film is not only a film but it is a history lesson. We need to show all of us that we are not alone in the world and that we need to help each other. It's a great film and I am proud to have seen it and have loved it.

This is an incredibly powerful film that reminds us that war is terrible, brutal and always has a horrible end. This is a story of a father and son who go to war against their own will, a father who is a traumatised survivor, a son who is betrayed by his father, a father and son who fight on the side of the British forces, a father who is destroyed, a son who is broken, a father who is troubled. What war is about is not about what happens to the victims, not about the brains and the scars. This film is about the cost, the cost of war, the cost of freedom and the cost of surviving, and what war does to you. It is a powerful film, I cried, and I am not ashamed of it. I am not ashamed of my country. I am proud to be British and proud to be fighting in a war for freedom and the freedom of the people. A great film, so powerful, so truthful, so real. 9/10

I just saw this film at the Toronto International Film Festival and it was really powerful and moving. As a person who has been in and around the war, I can say that it is as real as it can get. The fact that the film makers were not able to do so is another example of the Hollywood system. They are able to get inside the head of a German soldier and show what it is like to be a soldier in World War II. The message of this film is that a man must not listen to the voices of those that have been there and know the truth. It is important to remember that there are some people who don't like this film because they do not want to see the truth. However, I think that this film has a message that most people should see and understand. The truth is that we are living in a war of survival. We are fighting for our lives and there are no winners in this war. We have to be grateful that we are alive and that we can go on. We should all do our best to be good to each other, because that is the only way we will be able to survive. We have to make a choice in this war: Are we going to be heroes or are we going to be killers?

This movie is about war and the end of the world. It is a story of how life became meaningless and what is left when you try to make sense of life. I do not recommend this movie to anyone who has not lived in the last 10 years, and I think this is a film for everyone who has lived. I also like the cast. A lot of the actors were from the army and it shows in the movie. They all have different personalities and have some background. Overall, I think this movie is great. It is well worth the price of admission.

The film doesn't do a bad job of showing how the Japanese were completely insane. The acting is also superb. The ending is also very moving. This is a must-see film, and a very important film. Watch it and learn about what war is like.

In a world where we have to live our lives on the basis of the war, or the war will have to live on our shoulders, this film shows how a man can deal with the events that occur in the wake of a war. This is a film that is worth seeing, and worth remembering.

It's not a war movie, it's a movie about war, and it's about the war in Iraq. I know this, because I was in Iraq for two years and lived in the field, and I can tell you the truth. I did not like the war, and I don't like war movies. I don't like them, but I have to admit that this one is good. It's the first war movie I've seen in my life, and it's the best one I've seen in a long time. I don't like the subject, and I don't like the characters. But the movie is good. It's a very good movie, and it's a movie that I think you should see. If you like war movies, you should see this one. It's a good movie, and I recommend it to everybody. It's a very good movie, and I recommend it to everybody.
