At the end of the film, there is the following text "In theory, the official hunt for war criminals in Bosnia continues to this day ... However the two most wanted men - Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic - continue to evade the U.S., the United Nations, the European Union, NATO, the Hague and all in the civilized world who claim to be looking for them. In the ten years that Radovan Karadzic has been on the run, he has published two books and one play. Perhaps if the International Community opened a semester theatre... ... But they're probably too busy "searching" for Osama Bin laden."
Since the film was released, there have been major developments. Radovan Karadzic was arrested in 2008 in Belgrade and extradited to the Netherlands. Found guilty of 10 (out of 11) counts of war crimes by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), he was sentenced to 40 years imprisonment in 2016. Ratko Mladic was arrested in Lazarevo (Serbia) in 2011 and extradited to the Netherlands. His trial started in 2012 and is still incomplete. See more »

Am ı being so sensitive in my comments about films which have Islamic issues. İf so, it only means the producers has hit the target, because there is no way they forget the Muslim's feelings for their films. They sure must making some searching and speaking for the people like me we are surprised and impressed. So there are people still cares for the world, for meaningless wars, there are people on this planet hoping the sorrows will end.
The film is about three journalists seeking a war criminal who has slaughtered Muslim's in Bosnia. Richard Gere is always Richard Gere calm acting for most times, no overacting, pure acting. Hollywood's rising star Terrence Howard does a good job, a supporting team mate, giving the film all he got (as he did in "The Brave One") The story is not boring. But i warn you the scenes after slaughter have been given so dramatic that you may not dare to watch it tears a Muslim's heart apart. Except those scenes you will sure enjoy it. And you will pause the DVD in the messages in the ending part.
Films mostly are not just for entertaining now. They are communication gadgets. And they are making nations come closer, share each other's senses, try to understand.
There is unfortunately some mistakes in Islamic way of living. Why do producers keep on doing mistakes at this point although they have good intentions. One of three of the world is Muslim we all watch your films as we feel close to them. İt is hard to understand.
İt is a fine film from a brilliant director.
