In one scene where the snipers are stopped by a Fairfax County policeman, there is a Home Outfitters store prominently visible in the background. Home Outfitters does not have any stores in Fairfax County, Virginia, or the United States, as it is a Canadian company. See more »

Amazingly impressed from someone that lived it.
5 April 2005 | by nospam2600See all my reviews

I should start by saying I lived only 4 blocks from the shooting at White Flint and worked in Silver Spring. I have also used IMDb for years without feeling the need to write a comment or register for voting until now.

I felt this movie deserved a much higher rating then I what I saw. True my 8/10 can probably be viewed as a bit biased from being so close to the subject matter.

With that said, I feel the movie did a great job of portraying the events in a way that made you feel what it was like to go through it. I at times was intensely sad and angry watching it and re-living it. I enjoyed the way they portrayed Chief Moose, Who I respect and feel got unfairly treated during the events and especially subsequently after.

They did not unfairly demonetize the snipers although many probably feel they should. Instead taking a tactful approach to the characters.

I was also amazed to learn much more from this film then I though possible going into it.

*** If you want to know what it felt like to live this drama as the general victim of the proximity this film is a good place to start. ***
