Movie Review: Day Of The Falcon

With Antonio Banderas, Mark Strong, Freida Pinto and Tahar Rahim in the lead roles, Day of the Falcon is an epic on bravery, suffering, honor, betrayal and valor. After years of  death and destruction in wars, the kings of two neighbouring kingdoms sign a peace accord, marking the disputed land between them as a no man's land. But when oil is discovered there, greed takes over, and the war is re-ignited.

One king looks at the oil revenues as a way to rid his kingdom of death and disease, the other, frozen in time, looks at it as evil. As egos and values clash, their children have to take a stand, defend their honor, putting their love and their lives at stake.

A tad slow, but a good watch for some sandy action!
