When you highlight the five stars to rate a film on Amazon a subtitle pops up that says 'I love this film', I don't, I hate it but it rates five stars because against all odds the director of 'Bloodrayne' and 'Alone in the dark' has made a film that should be seen by everyone in the West. It is of no suprise to me having seen it that Amnesty International are backing this film and I'm not ashamed to say that it made me cry. The story follows a group of western journalists who are taken by a team of three Nigerian soldiers from the African Union to visit a black African village in the Darfur region of Sudan. They are investigating reports of ethnic cleansing and genocide by the Arabic militia known as the Janjaweed. On their return from this peaceful village they see a Janjaweed force heading back towards it and are faced with the dilemna of whether to continue to safety or to try to help. I can't really say anymore without spoilers but suffice it to say that the attack eventually takes place and you are presented with the horrific reality of what is happening in Darfur all the time. Boll does not shy away from portraying horror and in this case it is entirely appropriate. There are none of the lurid splashes of scarlet cgi blood you would expect from his usual films, the violence is both awful and realistic. The cast both known and unknown do a superb job, Uwe Boll is to be commended and his film deserves to be seen but you won't enjoy it.
