Two Line Reviews - #244

Movie: Charlie Wilson's War (2007)

Plot: USSR is bludgeoning its way through Afghanistan and is literally raping the country apart. A US congressman makes his country react to this unfair attack after making personal visit to refugee camps in Pakistan. He, and 2 others, make it possible for Afghans to fight back and make the mighty Soviet army retreat...but the USA doesn't end it the way the congressman wants it to...leading to we-know-what.

  • The film's story and screenplay are its strong points and credits for the men behind that. It was pretty much like reading a novel on the subject.
  • Tom Hanks is spontaneous and charming as the congressman Charlie and Philipp Seymour Hoffman is a riot on screen; he's brilliant.
  • The helicopter attack shots looked great and so were the ways showing the entire Afghan war and the sarcasm in showing how very few knew the whereabouts of east asian countries
A good film.Worth a watch.
