Trivia

Near the beginning, president Saakashvili can be seen munching on his necktie. This was based on an actual incident, in which the president was caught on camera while chewing on his tie, unaware that the camera was rolling. The footage has been widely translated, and can be easily found on YouTube. See more »

Biased, but necessary and entertaining film
21 August 2011 | by janne-junnonenSee all my reviews

This film reminds me of Renny Harlin's breakthrough film from 1985, Born American. The scripts are lacking in both movies, but action sequences are well made and the propaganda aspects are similar. It's no secret that these films have a heavy anti-Soviet/Russian agenda, and actually as a Finn myself, I greatly enjoy that Harlin has the b*lls to p*ss of the Russians. His 1985 movie was especially gutsy considering that it was BANNED in Finland for a short while! (The government didn't want to endanger Soviet relations.)

So it's not a neutral movie, but it doesn't need to be. Somebody had to do it, and Harlin was the perfect man for the job. Russians have their own biased movies of this war, so a counterbalance was needed, and I'm sure "5 Days of War" beats the Russian movies by far in entertainment value, and will be seen by millions more.
