  • 1 star "Isn't a little soon to be remaking Rock the Kasbah?"
  • 5 stars "outstanding film. Wonderful concept, great script and riveting to follow the nature of war journalism, tastefully eased by the humor of one of our greatest, Tina Fey. For those of you rating low because "the action isn't t that good" go watch some CG tranformers flick. This film's way more."
  • 2 stars "Did not like it as much as most movies . Too much sexual references and foul language. At times, the film dragged . At least, it was a realistic portrayal of being a women journalist in an hostile environment. A few funny moments. No where as good as American Sniper, Lone Survivor, or Zero Dark Thirty."
