7 out 10. directorial debut of Angelina Jolie. She gets involved again in the “victims of war” subject, and uses the “predictable” storytelling techniques of Hollywood. The plot appears too black-and-white on the way it “justifies the international intervention”, but the actors save the film with their surprising good performances.
