A sad reflection on Bosnian war and US reporters involvement. The story needs to be told but this was too dull to be truly effective.

The performances from Nesbitt and Harrelson are nice against-type performances and the kids are respectable, too.

Tupac is a rare hip-hop artist who was also a good actor. On top of missing out on all his musical talent we missed out on many roles he could have played.
Belushi also succeeds in being a genuine asshole who is desperate and careless.

I would have preferred a timeline during the film; because I didn't know when the hell it was going to end and i was getting antsy... probably around the 5th year.

Played like a made-for-tv movie from the 70s... or maybe that was point? Very unique if that's the case. I felt like I was really watching a movie from the time period, but with current actors.
