    I did a search and was suprised to see that no one has made a thread on this movie. The only thread I found was one Seeking made a year ago to commemorate the 10 year anniversary the genocide in Rwanada. Anyway, how many of you have seen this movie? I think Don Cheadle did a great job but I was very dissappointed by Nick Nolte. I dont' think that role fit Nick Nolte he only had one good scene (the bar scene). He is meant to play more fo a hardass than a softy. The white extras in the movie also kind of pissed me off (if you really pay attention you'll see what I mean) As a whole though the movie was great.

    "Ten years ago, some of the worst atrocities in the history of mankind took place in the country of Rwanda; and in an era of high-speed communication and round-the-clock news, the events went almost unnoticed by the rest of the world. In only three months, almost 1 million people were brutally murdered. In the face of these unspeakable actions, inspired by his love for his family, an ordinary man summons extraordinary courage to save the lives of over a thousand helpless refugees by granting them shelter in the hotel he manages."

    Im pretty sure its not out yet. I saw a preview over the computernet though, and it looks pretty solid. Don Cheadle is the fucking man, regardless.

    I've got it at my theater and I screened it on Thursday.
    It was pretty good.

    I'm not impressed by A LOT of films out today, but this one was noteworthy.

    Don Cheadle did do a great job.
    I fucking hate Nick Nolte in ANY movie.
