Film value: 7/10
Directed by Antoine Fuqua ("Training Day," "The Replacement Killers,") "Tears of the Sun" is an entertaining action film bolstered by a moral backbone. It's the perfect film for people who wish that action films had more substance. This one goes beyond the simplicity of good vs. evil or revenge motifs. It's about survival, and about doing the right thing no matter what the cost . . . or the orders. The characters don't develop as much as they could, and the human element doesn't hit you with the weight of "Hotel Rwanda," but "Tears of the Sun" is still an engaging activist film about breaking the rules of engagement. Call it an action film with a conscience.
