Tears of the Sun Details


A career soldier is forced to choose between following orders and saving lives in this action thriller. Lt. A.K. Waters ([[Performer~P76618~Bruce Willis~brucewillis]]) is a veteran Navy SEAL whose commander ([[Performer~P66091~Tom Skerritt~tomskerritt]]) has given his team a special assignment. A Central African nation is expected to explode into war at any moment, and Waters and his cohorts are to escort any American citizens in the area to safety, most notably Dr. Lena Kendricks ([[Performer~P195176~Monica Bellucci~monicabellucci]]), a doctor from the United States who has set up a clinic in the jungle. Waters and his men find Kendricks, but she refuses to leave with them unless she can bring along 70 refugees who have been left to her care. Kendricks makes it clear that if they are left behind, the refugees will face certain death, but Waters's C.O. insists he bring back Kendricks -- but not her patients. Forced by his conscience to disobey orders, Waters and his team race against time to escort the refugees to a border town where they will find safe haven before invading troops can ambush them. Tears of the Sun (which was produced under the title Man of War) also features [[Performer~P31032~Cole Hauser~colehauser]] and [[Performer~P89947~Fionnula Flanagan~fionnulaflanagan]]. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
