Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that No Man's Land is a political thriller set in the Middle East. The series is centered around a group of female soldiers who are mounting a resistance to ISIS, and there's a heavy amount of violence and peril. Combat and acts of terrorism are shown, characters are kidnaped and tortured, and military-grade weapons are featured heavily, often as props and accessories for characters. Mild sexual content includes discussions about sex and some bedroom scenes (no nudity or simulated sex is shown). Mild profanity includes "damn" and "s--t," and there's some drinking and smoking featured throughout the series. Like some other war-based dramatizations, No Man's Land might make combat and conflict seem alluring to some viewers.
Is It Any Good?
"There's no such thing as an anti-war film" is a famous quote by French filmmaker François Truffaut. The implication is that entertainment can't help but make war look like an adventure through the benefit of editing and cinematography. This definitely applies to No Man's Land, which seems to have the same lust for military weaponry that many of its characters do. The series wades directly into a complex Middle Eastern conflict without a sharp enough point-of-view to help viewers understand the context or empathize with the soldiers. There is certainly merit in telling the extraordinary tale of the Women's Protection Unit, but unfortunately it mostly gets lost in the dreary storytelling here.
