A rare insight into the issues on the ground in Somalia. This is what happens when states fail, and are largely ignored by the international community. This is a documentary, which isn't clear in the film description. It's really a personal insight from those involved, and poses questions into the ethics of mercenary forces used to address international issues such as piracy. If you like real world documentary, then worth a watch.
This is a mindless propaganda film promoting a bunch of incompetent, gung-ho US and S.African mercenaries who claim to be singlehandedly tackling the Somalia pirate problem but who in fact are unable even to control their own rag-bag local Somali militiamen. Most of their hapless recruits understandably become tired of the macho nonsense fed to them by their so-called 'expert' military commanders, and eventually revolt or just clear off to get high on the local narcotic known as Khat. Meanwhile, the poor hostages aboard the stricken Indian cargo ships are abandoned by their government and left to suffer torture or death at the hands of vile Somali pirates. The whole sorry mess proves just how toothless these mindless, macho mercenaries really are and what a waste of documentary time and money this dull, pointless, vapid film represents. Avoid!
A thinly disguised pro private security firm documentary, with no coherent counter arguments put forward. And one is left with the impression that in the end, off camera, the private security firm sorted out the whole pirate problem!
