One of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, Marie Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless.

When Bell changes the magazine of her HK MP5 during the firefight in the bank, the sub-machine gun's safety is set to S (Sicher = Safe).

Nicole Kidman is an absolute beast in this movie. Her performance in Destroyer is truly enthralling, and quite frankly, the highlight of the entire picture. She submerges herself in the character both physically and emotionally. You can easily feel her pain and bleak persona. Even her joyous moments- as scarse as they are- were well interpreted by Kidman.
The movie is a fine movie, at least to me, though many don't feel that way. It is a must-see.
