Charlie Wilson's War

What a great movie! I didn’t knew into details what it was about before I started to watch it. It’s about the American involvement in the war between Afghanistan and Soviet during the 70’s. An engaged woman, (Julia Roberts), let kongressmann Charlie Wilson visit Afghanistan and see the brutalities the Soviets are doing. This motivates Charlie to help Afghanis by help from Pakistan and Zia Ul-Haq. Om Puri plays the role of Zia Ul-Haq which is a funny part.

It’s a funny movie, and reminds of Three Kings which also was a funny war movie. The difference lies in that Charlie Wilson's War is more a portray of Charlie Wilson and his involvement in this case, which helped to change the history which later lead to the fall of Soviet Union.

Rating: 5 of 6
