Awesome War Movie...

I loved this movie! It's fine for anyone 15+. There is a lot of violence and language. at least 3 f-words, 15 s-words, etc. Sensitive teens and young children should not watch this.

Good Action/War Movie

Great Plot and some solid action scenes. Definitely worth watching.

bloody war film has strong language and tons of guns

a very entertaining, thrilling, and very gritty true story of a man shot down during the Bosnian war (Rescue Dawn, anyone?) has loads of violence and strong language, which makes this war movie a better fit for older kids. the film is grittily realistic, with dead bodies in piles, people getting shot (sometimes with blood spraying and one in the head), explosions, missile and rocket barrages, a stabbing with a flare, firing squads, a man blown up with a landmine, and lots of bloody injuries. the language is surprisingly strong, with 2 F words, plenty of S bombs, and an overuse of godd****t. the admiral smokes.

So-So action flick, skip it if you aren't an action fan

This movie was somewhat entertaining. Some intense violent sequences, some swearing, and a disturbing scene where the hero hides in a mass grave that is filled with the bodies of victims of genocide. This movie is very intense, but somehow not very entertaining. The acting is average at best, and the story (I'm pretty sure it's fiction) is not very interesting.
