This war film goes into the controversies of violence and what is deemed to be moral and logical, and what is deemed to be evil and unnecessary. The movie is about two army officials who decide to air strike suicide bombers in Kenya, leading to a lot of political backlash and controversy over whether or not it was the right call. I feel like this movie had great chemistry between its leading actors Helen Mirren and Alan Rickman, with supporting actors that complemented the duo. This drama/thriller film was in no way absurd or out there, and delivered things as facts instead of blind bias and opinion. I would rate this political film 4.5/5 stars and recommend it to those with a fascination with military and war.
