Tears of the Sun

By Ray Macula / August 17, 2003 /

Tears of the Sun was a rather abysmal disappointment to all the hype which surrounded it. Action-wise, it of course delivered (although nowhere near the level of Black Hawk Down).

For what I thought was going to be your typical cornball “Family-fun” (uuuugggghhh- I shudder at the mere thought) movie, it sure surprised me. Plenty of innuendos on who’s gay; who’s…
