    This historical account of injustice in the army is extraordinarily well played and some of the courtroom scenes are quite memorable. However, My sympathies for the defendents were muted by the fact that they were yet another bunch of prisoners awaiting execution just like the prisoners they themselves executed. The movie seems to suggest that the defendents should be spared because they (kind of) followed orderes, but I could not stop thinking that those Boers executed should have been spared because they were waving a good damn white flag. I guess it all comes down to the absurdities of warfare. 6 years 1 month ago
