Reviews of recently viewed movies for your consideration.
I finally got around to watching this movie and was not disappointed. What it lacked in individual character development, was made up for in the sweeping cinematography and the tension caused, in the plot, by the characters being required to deliver a message before thousands of their fellow soldiers were led into a trap.
The incidental sub-plots gave me a sense of realism, as things happen in life to intrude on our "mission", and even more so during a time of warfare. They also help to keep the movie rolling along with a series of action sequences, adding to the urgency of the situation.
