  1. 75
    A powerhouse of a film about modern journalism and war, with battle scenes that have the immediacy and impact of the famed opening sequence of "Saving Private Ryan."
  2. 75
    A powerful portrait of modern journalism and the nobility -- and futility -- of chronicling modern war.
  3. Reviewed by: David Rooney
    Provides powerful drama thanks to its trenchant core story and harrowing re-creation of the brutal chaos of war.
  4. 60
    Making such a tragedy the backdrop to a love story risks trivializing it, though Chouraqui no doubt intended the film to affirm love's power to help people endure almost unimaginable horror.
  5. 50
    Suddenly topical because of parallels to the kidnapping and death of Daniel Pearl.
  6. The story's a trifle, but it's consistently edgy as the team stride straight into the middle of grisly violence so they can capture it on film.
  7. 20
    A stupefying mix of action, politics and melodrama.
