Trivia

At the end of the film, there is the following text "In theory, the official hunt for war criminals in Bosnia continues to this day ... However the two most wanted men - Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic - continue to evade the U.S., the United Nations, the European Union, NATO, the Hague and all in the civilized world who claim to be looking for them. In the ten years that Radovan Karadzic has been on the run, he has published two books and one play. Perhaps if the International Community opened a semester theatre... ... But they're probably too busy "searching" for Osama Bin laden."

Since the film was released, there have been major developments. Radovan Karadzic was arrested in 2008 in Belgrade and extradited to the Netherlands. Found guilty of 10 (out of 11) counts of war crimes by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), he was sentenced to 40 years imprisonment in 2016. Ratko Mladic was arrested in Lazarevo (Serbia) in 2011 and extradited to the Netherlands. His trial started in 2012 and is still incomplete. See more »

Goofs

The UN mission ended in 20 December 1995 when NATO took over (IFOR/SFOR). In 2000 there should have been SFOR flags instead of the UN flags, SFOR patches, not UN and no blue berets. Military vehicles should have their national camouflage painting and SFOR markings. This is for NATO/SFOR details. The UN Mission (UNMIBH) was still active during the time this film depicts and the UNMIBH personnel and equipment are accurate - specifically the blue berets and UN vehicles for the UN International Police Task Force personnel in Foca.

This is what the Hollywood is all about
18 January 2008 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie and I had to post a comment. Not because it is such a shallow movie but because its rating is 7.3 so far. First of all, the story. It is based on true events but is very far from it. Im not saying that because I'm from Serbia, but because you cant make a movie regarding something serious like a war without researching all the facts. For Hollywood directors it is always simple - the good and the bad. In the 80's the Russians were the enemies, then the Arabs and now the Serbs. I'm not defending any side in any war, but there are always two sides and there are good and bad people on both of them. That's why movies like this offend entire nations (last year '300' was really offensive towards Persian and Iran culture). I respect all the people in the US, but the truth is that most of them get their knowledge of unknown countries through movies and movies like this are teaching them lies. I don't like movies where Arabs are terrorists, and Vietnamese are evil and all Germans are blond and nazzies. I know movies are fun but they also have educational character. That's why I'm surprised with such a high rating. If you want to see a movie much closer to the truth watch 'Savior' with Dennis Quaid or Schindler's List. I just don't understand why Richard Gere and Terrence Howard were involved in such a B production movie (it closer to the F production), but Gere was well aware what kind of movie is this because he didn't want to come to Belgrade premiere (he went to other cities around). To bad there is no 0 as rating because this doesn't deserve this 1.
