  • 5 Days of War

“A popcorn movie for people itching to hate Russians again.” Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies

“5 Days of War seems like an eternity if you are in the audience.” Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics

“Opening with the oft-quoted statement ‘The first casualty of war is truth,’ 5 Days of War should have heeded its own warning.” Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle

“5 Days of War retains a visceral punch. A shame it doesn’t have much of a brain.” Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com

“The plot is culled from a variety of ‘war is hell but I’m covering it anyway’ journalist-in-the-field movies but handled with clichéd clumsiness.” Linda Barnard, Toronto Star

“Renny Harlin used to make ridiculous movies involving pirates or Sylvester Stallone; now he makes ridiculous movies about Putin’s 2008 invasion of the country of Georgia.” Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
