Product Description

Special Features

Because of the intense political nature of Tears of the Sun, it's no surprise that a good deal of the DVD content is devoted to the political and historical background of Africa. Director Antoine Fuqua discusses it in his feature-length commentary track, along with other comments about the film itself. Another commentary track, in which the authors recall the making of the film and the material that was cut, lasts 17 minutes and is not related to the portion of the film it accompanies. A pop-up "fact track" offers further background and production info, as does a 15-minute making-of featurette. Eight of the African actors discuss their harrowing personal experiences in "Voices of Africa," and eight deleted scenes wouldn't have added much to the film, other than introducing two small but important characters earlier. The sound mix is particularly involving during the climactic scene. --David Horiuchi

4.0 out of 5 stars underrated Willis movie Jan. 5 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Yes Bruce plays yet another " soldier / cop " but this movie is more than about just
him ( although he does step it up - you believe he IS this guy ).

The story may seem cliche but the writing , directing , cinemetography definitely bring
it up to being a tense and heartbreaking movie with people you genuinely believe in
and want to see come out of their harrowing escape alive.

Some scenes are hard to watch - some are definitely not for the squeamish - but in the end
it is a very satisfying action movie with a heart at it's core. It may not happen in real life
all the time but you have to wish American soldiers in this predicament would act this way all the time.

I do - and I'm not American.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Action June 21 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you enjoy Bruce and action you will like Tears of the Sun. The seal team is well cast and plays their roles well. This is one of my rewatch on a rainy day movies.

Nigeria is being taken over and the royal family is dispatched. Still a few Americans are left to be extracted. We are so used to this happening on a regular basis that we forget or will never know what it is like. Lieutenant A.K. Waters (Bruce Willis) is tasked with extracting Dr. Lena Fiore Kendricks (Monica Bellucci) but she will not leave without 40 injured patients. We know what is going to happen; however the story is on how it plays out.

If you buy the DVD do not over look the two voice over commentaries as they add to the experience. Then watch the film again and see what you missed.

As a rule I usually avoid this kind of movie as we know the end and the travel time thought the story is mostly blood and guts; in this film it is verging on gratuitous. Of course with a few exceptions this is a Bruce Willis signature. To its credit the background music was not the standard shoot-em-up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but it just didn't do it for me July 10 2004
Format:DVD
You can't really call "Tears of the Sun" a bad movie. By any account it's certainly a decent action war movie, and I enjoyed it. Where "Tears of the Sun" fails to succeed is in it's somewhat one-dimensional and shallow aproach at including policical and social messages, and in it's seeming impotence at crossing the lines from mediocrity to greatness.
The plot is pretty much a no brainer that gets set up right from the get-go. The Democratic government in Nigeria gets ousted by a military coup and rebel forces execute the presidential family and begin an genocidal killing spree, killing christians and rival tribes. Bruce willis and his small special forces team is sent to to find and evacuate several US Citizens, including a doctor working at a christian mission. The doctor wont leave without her patients, and so Willis and his team agree to escort the people to the Cameroon border. Of course they are followed by the rebels the whole way and are grossly outnumbered and it becomes a race to get to the border and to safety before they are completely over run.
Not exactly full of surprises and not much food for thought. of course there is the initial lie/double cross, and then the classic (not to mention very cliche) moment where our heroes grow a conscience after witnessing the horrors and extent of ethnic cleansing that is taking place and decide to help the people as thier way of making amens with thier own guilty consciences. other than this there is little to talk about plot-wise.
The acting is pretty good, although it varies throughout. Willis himself does a very good job playing his charcter though other than him and the doctor none of the characters grew on me. The setting is great, and the shots of the african landscape were very nice.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tears Of The Disappointed... May 13 2003
Format:DVD
You know, from all of the advertising and promotion for this film, you get the idea that 'Tears Of The Sun' promises to be a nice blend of macho action heroics and remorseful anti-war sentiment. Well, that's what it wanted to be. In the end, it's not any of that by a long shot. There are two blaringly obvious problems with this movie. Let's talk about them a little.
The first and most obvious setback with 'Tears Of The Sun' is that it tries to be both an action flick and an anti-war film at the same time and just cancels itself out in the process. The plot, about an elite team of Navy SEALS (aren't they all supposed to be elite?) are assigned to save a doctor who is American by marriage from possible death at the hands of militant guerillas in the remote jungles of an African nation in revolutionary turmoil. Pretty heady stuff, right? It sure would make for a compelling film, right? I agree. Unfortunately, director Antoine Fuqua has studder-stepped here with this heartless hole of a movie. The dialogue is stilted and wooden, even coming from such actors as Bruce Willis, (the team leader) Monica Belluci, (the stubbornly stupid doctor) and Tom Skerritt (Willis' commander).
This brings me to the second problem with this film. There is zero character development in this movie. None. Not even a smidgen. You'd think with all of the high-minded ambition teeming in this movie, just waiting to bubble over and take effect, that there'd be some great character moments. There's not a one. Bruce Willis' character is as emtionless and uninteresting as they come. We don't even get a single tiny hint as to why he's such a space cadet. He just is. On the other hand, his performance is oscar-caliber compared to the epic blunder that's disguised as Monica Belluci's painfully annoying performance.

'Tears of the Sun' is a good film starring Bruce Willis. I liked how the movie protrayed Africans as real people, something which the American media normally does not do. Read more

I'am going to be honest, the only reason I watched this is because the director was the director from TRAINING DAY. I was surprised to see Bruce Willis doing such a good job. Read more
