If you’re a customer through sites like satellitetv-hq.com and you get a lot of movie channels, you might have heard about The Situation. It follows the story of an American journalist during the Iraq conflict of 2003 and her torn loyalty between two men she loves on both sides.
Despite an overall ambitious plot set against the backdrop of one of the most controversial conflicts in our country’s history, you would imagine it would open to greater acclaim. Unfortunately, the film was not well received overall and suffered during its circulation.
Most of the criticism came from people with issues regarding the plot. Some people cited the film’s inability to accurately blend both the romance and the mystery genres together as a sticking point. Others were not too taken with perceived preachy aspect of it.
What all of these critics fail to understand about the film as a whole was that it was never about the conspiracy or the war. The actual “situation” in the film is with regards to the protagonist’s choice between duty and love – it’s a battle of integrity. That’s the real war.
Unfortunately, while the film had a decent plot and a great script, it will remain a cult classic in the world of cinema.
