United States Navy SEAL team rescue mission in the West African country of Nigeria. Lt. A.K. Waters (Bruce Willis) lead a team sent to rescue U.S. citizen Dr. Lena Fiore Kendricks (Monica Bellucci) from the civil war from jungle hospital. Kendricks refuses to leave without the patients. The soundtrack, editing and screenplay were insufficient to keep the whole movie together. Lack of character development was likewise evident. The cinematography and acting were brilliant. Tears of the Sun is an effective war film that shows human compassion despite strict orders.

The characters are the usual mix of morally...

Needed Time to Get the Right Footing

The movie started off a little too slow for my liking but it got so much more interesting during the second half so I am ultimately recommending it. Before the half-way point, I didnít see the point of the movie because it seemed like the story was going nowhere. I mean, the Special-Ops team, led by Bruce Willis, had a plan and all but none of it was actually executed right away because there were too many scenes where the people being rescued were shown crying and saying goodbye. That said, there were also too many scenes where the filmmakers tried to make the audience care. I feel like they didnít need to do that because we can see what was happening; most audiences will care, whether they like it or not, when they see refugees trying to escape from murdering rebels. Most critics didnít...
