Whats next? A movie about kind Hitler?
29 September 2017 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

All you have to know about this movie that all those events was nothing like it in real life.

Terrorists was cruel and arrogant. They wasn't freedom fighters, their parents had good place in communistic party. Thats actually how they easily gets access to a weapon. Georgia was one of most corrupted regions of USSR while it was free from taxes since Stalin. Special forces tried to save civilians in first place, not kill. Stewardess that was pushed out of plane by Georgian terrorists becomes disabled for rest of her life. Terrorsist forced hostages to urinates right on their sits, not allowing anybody go to toilet. Just like regular scum would do on their place. Movie have tonnes of incorrect or totally mixed up facts that have intention to represent some artistic point, probably. But that's rather propaganda of terrorism, as a cute way to express yourself.

Lets not make heroes out of crap like those sick bastards. As no sane person would make heroes out of ISIS, AlQuaeda, Taliban or any other filth.
