Half decent movie but too long. They should have cut at the very least a half hour from the movie. At the end I was irritated by the hostages and couldn't wait for the movie to end.

This 2-hour long drama plays like a re-enactment of the kidnapping event that took place over 10 years ago in a remote part of the Philippines. There isn't much of a plot, and you are constantly seeing the hostages being herded through the dense jungles, and escaping gunfire from the pursuing army. It is an OK watch.

Chilling terrorist drama in a sweltering paradise.

Kidnapping and rape as political statement.

Other: One scene of the live birth of a child from a womb. Don't know why that was necessary.
