Cinema - Movies supportive of the war - Reviews

Here are gathered some longer reviews of movies that are in some way supportive (or seen by some as supportive) of the war against Islamist tyranny.

There are short reviews of more films on the Movies supportive of the war page.


Warning: This page contains spoilers.





American Sniper (2014)

American Sniper (2014, general release 2015). The first movie since the Iraq War started in 2003 to depict how the Iraqi enemy fights. It only took 12 years!

Maybe in 12 years time we'll get another one.



Lefties hate the movie




Trailer for American Sniper.
It is one of the very few films ever to show the moral decisions that Allied and Israeli soldiers have to make in fighting against the sneaky, dishonourable, war criminal, jihad.



I quote Chris Kyle on my website in March 2012 (before he died).



The moving Chris Kyle funeral motorcade in Feb 2013.




Cleanskin (2012)

The first serious movie since 9/11 to have Islamic terrorists attack the UK. It only took 11 years!





Trailer for the flawed but interesting Cleanskin (2012).




Unthinkable (2010)

The first movie since 9/11 showing a fictional Islamist attack on the US.
The first movie since 9/11 showing an Islamist nuclear attack.
The first movie since 9/11 supporting the homeland fight against Islamism.
It only took 9 years!!




Trailer for the taboo-breaking Unthinkable .
It only took 9 years to get a film showing a fictional Islamist attack on the US!
Hollywood is as censored now as it was back in the days of the Hays Code.




Four Lions (2010)




Trailer for Four Lions.



Great scene in Four Lions at a university debate, where two angry Muslims complain about being profiled as terrorists. Of course, both of them are terrorists!
This reminds me of the BBC program "Don't Panic, I'm Islamic", where some of those featured complaining of fear of Islam turned out to be Islamic terrorists!



One of the idiots in Four Lions compromises their mission by bringing a (drugged up) girl home, with a house full of bomb-making gear on display. One of the gang orders him to kill her. He doesn't want to. The other one says, in a brilliant summation of Islamist ideology towards women: "Oh what, you can fuck her but you can't kill her? What's wrong with you?"



Genius: The jihadis communicate via cartoon avatars on a website called "Puffin Party".



The real life Four Lions: the London bomber Mohammad Sidique Khan.




The Hurt Locker (2009)

The first proper Iraq War movie. The first Iraq movie in which the Islamists are the bad guys. The first film supporting the American troops in Iraq. The first film supporting the British troops in Iraq.





Vantage Point (2008)

A strange film. It is hinted that the bad guys are Islamists, but never confirmed.




The Kingdom (2007)

The first fictional movie since 9/11 in which the bad guys are the modern Islamists.





Trailer for The Kingdom.
Click on high-resolution.




A Mighty Heart (2007)

A strange film. Not really a film where the bad guys are Islamists. Because the bad guys are never shown!




United 93 (2006)

The first proper cinema-released movie about 9/11. The first cinema-released movie about the War. The first cinema-released movie since 9/11 in which the bad guys are the modern Islamists.




Flight 93 (2006)

The first decent movie about the war since 9/11.




Flight 93 (2006).





Munich (2005)

The first real movie since 9/11 where the bad guys are Islamists.

This was a crap movie.
Good things:

Bad things:




Team America: World Police (2004)

The only movie at all about the war in 2001-05.





Gary's famous speech at the end of Team America: World Police.
"We're dicks! ... And Kim Jong Il is an asshole. ... But dicks also fuck assholes. Assholes who just want to shit on everything. ... I don't know much in this crazy, crazy world, but I do know that if you don't let us fuck this asshole ..."
Such delicious disrespect to a real-life living murderer.

Banned in Iran: This site is banned in Iran.

Blocked by the regressive left and Islamists on Twitter: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I will debate almost anyone. Stick to ideas and I will debate you. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Where to debate? Twitter's best days are over. I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a truly great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Since 2016, Twitter is broken. It is now full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could ever be appealed. It is time to find a better place to debate. I am on Parler at markhumphrys.
