Good movie, with the obligatory laughs and chase scenes. Even though there is no sex in the movie, it is for adults only - there is nothing in this film for smaller kids.
The plot held my attention for the full span of the movie. However, it was tough to separate raw fact from embellishment, but isn't that always the case with Hollywood?
The screenwriters seemed to exaggerate, and stereotype in places, to more clearly draw the "appropriate" portraits.
The movie did inform me of some aspects of the situation that I hadn't known previously, but I suspect that there are lots of dimensions and major participants that were minimized, or left out. This is probably because it focused primarily on the main people involved, and not the event in the broader context.
All in all, a much better than average film, addressing a major event in world history.
