It focuses on their lives prior to during and after the attacks. The attack, I dare say, was done beautifully. The true climax of the movie was the attack, not the love triangle. A good 30 -45 minutes of the movie was dedicated to the attack itse...

While the newer movie has given us time to reflect upon the war and realize that we both underestimated the...
