About the Movie

From acclaimed director Renny Harlin, 5 Days of War is an action-packed thriller that sheds light on the complicated politics and danger involved with exposing the truth during wartime. Inspired by the real events of the swift, but devastating, five-day war between Russia and the Georgian Republic in 2008, this vivid, heart-pounding film centers around a renegade American journalist (Rupert Friend of LULLABY FOR PI, THE YOUNG VICTORIA), his cameraman (Richard Coyle of PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME), and a young schoolteacher (Emmanuelle Chriqui of TV’s ENTOURAGE) caught in the combat zone during the first Russian airstrikes against Georgia. Attempting to broadcast the footage they've captured while under attack, they are met with resistance from international networks, fatigued by war news. The trio fights to live, and to live to tell the truth.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A hell-on-earth thriller that makes valiant gestures toward geopolitical savvy but gets bushwhacked by vet helmer Renny Harlin's weakness for the Rambo-esque. – John Anderson, Variety, Aug 18, 2011

Rotten: Flimsy dramatization of Russia/Georgia conflict fails both as historical re-enactment and as action-flick thrill ride. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Aug 25, 2011

Rotten: Had it rejected the genre's romantic trappings and false heroics more consistently, the movie might've been worth the ride. – Mark Holcomb, Village Voice, Aug 17, 2011

Rotten: Embarrassingly clumsy. – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, Aug 19, 2011

great movie

I am from country of GEORGIA and when i watched tis movie it was very emotional for me ! It is a great movie to see, totally worth the money

Amazing movie, but ending would have given it the 5th star.

It was an amazing movie. Don't get me wrong. It's based on a true story, witch may attract people's attention. There were some comedy parts in it, and I highly appreciated it. The ending was a little predictable, and it happened too quickly. That's what took off the last star. Other then that, totally worth the money.

Political financed movie

Actually filmed in Georgia. But it is not factual and bias, it was financed by the Georgian government and the Georgian political party the United National Movement. The Russians also made a movie in their own version of the conflict.
