Just got home....very odd movie. Did not realize it would be a "based on actual events" commentary on the politics of gun-running.

Anyone else see this one? Should have followed the lead of the Nat'l Guard folks who went into Flightplan.

I saw it Saturday night.
Seemed pretty good. They didn't seem to get too much into the good/bad of guns. Just stuck to the story for the most part. His wife being the main exception. I was having a hard time deciding if his brother was anti or just a humanitarian who did not want innocent people to die.


***SPOILER ALERT***
I loved the scene where they put the plane down on the hi way and gave away all the 'evidence'. Supposedly that was one of the very planes used to run guns in that same corner of the world at the time of that scene of the movie.

I thought it was pretty good. What really made me cringe was the whole gunpowder and coke deal (brown-brown wasn't it?) I didn't know you could snort gunpowder, sounds pretty risky, especially if you had taco bell eariler :D
