It's not often a film gets the Oscar for the best foreign language film, and this one did it. A film that shouldn't be missed by anyone. It was a great film about the Cuban Missile Crisis. For the most part, it was hard to tell who was who. A lot of what was happening in the film was a little confusing, and the film could have used more dialogue. But for the most part, it was a great movie. My only problem with it was the accent that the actor used for the Cuban government. It sounded more like a Spanish actor with a Cuban accent, and it didn't really work. However, it didn't ruin the film for me. I thought that it was a great film, and I'm not going to say that you should see it, because it's a good movie. If you like war movies, and you like a good film, this one is for you.

An interesting movie that deals with the war in Vietnam. First of all, I didn't know what to expect. I was in college, and had seen a couple of documentaries about Vietnam. I figured that it was just a war and that it was kind of like the movie "Saving Private Ryan", but I was wrong. This movie was really great. I have seen a lot of war movies, and this one is different. The war scenes are really well done. The movie is really well put together. The movie is well paced and doesn't drag. It really kept my interest and kept me guessing. The characters are really well portrayed, especially that of the Nguyen family. You really care about the characters. The director did an excellent job. The music is very well done. The movie is a little slow, but I don't mind that. It is not the type of movie you can watch for an hour and a half, but it is definitely worth your time. I give this movie a 9 out of 10.

I saw this film in a sneak preview in the theaters. It was not as good as the critics said, but I think it was a decent film. It is one of the few war films that is not based on a true story. The acting is great, especially by Shia LaBeouf. The script is pretty good and the characters are interesting. I think this is the best war film that has come out in the last decade. I liked it better than Platoon, but it is not as good as Full Metal Jacket. It is a little too long, but it is not a bad film. I am giving it a 9 out of 10.

This movie is about a Dutch war criminal who is the father of one of the most respected figures in the Dutch government. The movie was based on real events, the acting was very good and the movie gives a very good insight on the history of the war in Europe. It also gives a good insight to how war and violence in the world can be handled and justified. It is a movie you need to see.

I was blown away by this movie. My only criticism of the film is that it seems a little bit too short. But other than that, it was an amazing experience. I'm not a veteran and I haven't seen much war movies but this movie was just so powerful. I found myself on the edge of my seat as the story unfolded and the emotion I felt just kept on building throughout the movie. If you have never seen a war movie before, do yourself a favor and watch it. You won't regret it.

I was fortunate enough to see this film at the recent 2013 Dallas Film Festival. I found it well done and I would recommend it to anyone interested in World War II. While it may not be a film that everyone will like, I think that everyone who sees this film will be moved and made to think. I was moved to think about all of the ways that people are affected by war and the way that it is affected by the human being. I hope that those who saw this film enjoyed it as much as I did.

I have never seen a movie so well done, and so truthful in depicting the true history of the holocaust. It is shocking to realize that a movie could be so accurate in depicting the events of this holocaust. This movie is for those who do not want to feel guilt. It is for those who want to see how the world is right now and what we can do to help. The movie is so well done that I was totally involved in the events and was happy to learn of the events. It was also interesting to see the different people from all over the world, who were affected by the holocaust and how they reacted to the events. The movie is just an amazing story of the life and times of the Holocaust.

For anyone who wants to see a movie that makes you think, this movie is definitely for you. I'm not a movie buff, but I have seen this movie 3 times and plan to see it a 4th time. The story is based on a true story, and it does a great job of showing the horror of war. I could go on and on, but I won't. I really enjoyed this movie and I recommend it to everyone who wants to see a great movie.

The war in Afghanistan was a very long and difficult war that is very hard to explain. The real reason for this war is that the Taliban is a very evil and brutal group that is holding all of the people in the country in a very bad way. The real reason for this war is that the US is trying to keep the country safe and free. This movie is very interesting and I recommend it to anyone who is into war movies. 9/10

I had very low expectations for this movie and I was pleasantly surprised. I was very much surprised by the story and the film. It was very well done. The way they were filmed was very realistic. The movie is based on a true story and the actors are extremely good. The story is told in a very slow and easy to understand way. The pace is very good, I didn't find it slow at all. The story is very interesting and you would not be able to guess the ending, which is very good. I don't think I would have expected the ending that much. I also enjoyed the music score and the cinematography. The cinematography was very good and it is a very nice film. I can't believe I haven't heard about this movie before. It is a very good film and I would recommend it to everyone. 9/10

I watched this movie and was very impressed with it. It is a story about a revolution in Iran in 1979 and how the young people got the idea of a revolution. The movie was very well directed by the director of "10 Cloverfield Lane". He directed it very well and made it very interesting and very emotional. I think he did a great job. The actors did a great job and it was also good to see the young actors. I also like the way he made the movie look. It was also nice to see the movie in black and white. I also like the way the movie was filmed. The music was also good. Overall, I really liked this movie and I think it was a good one. I hope that they make more movies like this.

I was very impressed with this movie. The only reason I'm giving it a 9 is because of the pretty major flaws I had with the script. I don't think this movie would have been as good without the flaws. But, I am sure that if you compare it to Saving Private Ryan, you'll see that the movie has more action, more explosions, and better actors than the first one. This is definitely one of the best movies I've ever seen. It's one of those movies that you watch with your entire family. Everyone has to agree that it's the best war movie ever.

When I saw the trailer for this movie I thought it was just another Hollywood fable about how evil is good. But as the movie went on, I realized that it is actually quite a good movie. It's a shame that this movie has not been given the recognition it deserves. I can't wait to see it again.

A post 9/11 film, this film is based on the book by Michael Moore and does not show any Muslims or Israelis in it. In fact, the majority of the film is taken up by David Sirota, the journalist and author of "Sirota Files" who has a great deal to say about the way that the media handles issues of war. Sirota gets into an argument with one of his producers, Harold Ickes, about how he wants to leave the war to the soldiers but Ickes would rather have a book written about the incident. Sirota is so fed up that he decides to make a movie about what really happened on 9/11. Ickes is still in the film and is a part of the story telling process, but as the movie is taking place, he is at the bottom of the pile, and not one word of his dialogue is in the movie. The other contributors to the film are the journalists who worked on the story and the people who were injured in the attack. When you are dealing with a story like this, it is very important to get all the facts right and that is what the film does. Sirota also makes a point of pointing out that this was an attack on the American way of life, and that we were not at war with the Middle East, but were at war with a nation that we hate. Ickes has the right of it when he decides that he would rather have a book written about the incident. The acting is very good, and the whole thing feels very real and very moving. In fact, Ickes is the main character and it is his story that makes the movie work.

I've seen this movie in the theater and it was a great experience. I was amazed by the realism of the movie. The way they captured the image of the Viet Nam war was incredible. The movie was set in the Vietnam war, but it was a fictionalized version of the Vietnam war. I had no idea about the actual events. I thought it was an amazing movie and I recommend it to anyone who loves war movies. It is a must see for any true war movie fan.

I am not a fan of war movies, nor have I ever been one. However, this movie does not disappoint. In fact, I was riveted. The movie is not propaganda, but rather, an unbiased look at a historical event. It's a one of a kind movie. The story is so realistic that you will find yourself sympathizing with the characters. Not many war movies portray the horrors of war in such a realistic manner. The acting was very good. My favorite scene was when the British soldiers were digging the trenches. They were buried alive and the British soldiers were still fighting. You can almost feel their agony. The war was real. I am a little surprised that this movie did not receive an Oscar. It is definitely a must see for war movie fans. The story and acting is worth the price of admission. I give this movie 9/10.
