5.0 out of 5 stars Do NOT Give Up in Early Part–The Ending is Riveting, April 26, 2010

Do NOT give up on this movie in the first third. I stayed with it because a very experienced global law enforcement officer with anti-terrorism experience told me the movie was worth seeing through to the end, and he was absolutely right.

This is a fine depiction of how gangs and religious and political conflicts get started, it is a superb depiction of the “collateral damage” that affects “bystanders” to the end of their days, and it ends absolutely brilliantly with a typically strong but never-the-less very moving closure by BOTH of the main actors.

Highly recommended to those who wish to think about cause and effect and the psychological dimensions of intra-community violence.

5.0 out of 5 stars So many good reviews, just adding my perspecitve and recommendaitions

Liam Neeson

Of the hundreds of DVD’s that I own, this is the only one that has a deep moral legitimacy and a deep moral message. There are many other DVDs about good people like Gandhi, good efforts like Peace One Day, about herorism and so on, but this one DVD is my most treasured and the one that I watch at least twice a year.

Here are other DVDs in the goodness vein that I recommend:
Gandhi (Widescreen Two-Disc Special Edition)
Peace One Day
Woodstock – 3 Days of Peace & Music (The Director’s Cut)
Tibet – Cry of the Snow Lion
The Snow Walker
Santana: Hymns for Peace – Live at Montreux 2004 [HD DVD]
