I know why the critics gave it such a low mark. It makes you look inside humanity to see how cruel it can become. There are some who wish the genicide had not happened; it did... Sadly again and again it raises it's head. This is a must see!!! (Lest we forget...)

An outstanding film and one that everyone should see. I just watched it. The indomitable spirit of people to survive and continue to live in spite of going thru hell , is truly amazing. Go see it!

The story is a compelling one, but not particularly an entertaining one. It feels as though it drags on and on. The plot does not hold your total interest all the time and it does seem impossible at times. I wonder how true the story is to the actual real world events. Hollywood does manage to twist real events somewhat to make them entertaininig to watch.
