REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the drama has some exhilarating moments, but they're dampened by concessions to conventionally bloviating music, overly theatrical dialogue and inadvertently comic slo-mo..”
by John Anderson [Variety]
“..unsurprisingly given its origins, no "fog of war" exists here, just brave Georgian soldiers and helpless citizens facing Russians whose rogue, tattooed gunmen happily shoot grandmothers without provocation..”
by John DeFore [Washington Post]
“..should appeal more to those who like to watch stuff blow up than understand exactly why the carnage is transpiring..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
