Journal 6 Review of Beasts of No Nation
The movie Beast of No Nation by Cary Fukunaga is about a young boy named Agu who is forced to join a group of soldiers. While Agu fears his commander and many of the men around him, his childhood has been ruined by the war that is happing throughout his country.
I would recommend this movie to many people because it is very interesting, heartbreaking and powerful it tells a great story on what it was like for these people when their families are taken and killed right in front of them or taken away, and also what it was like for these boys during war.
This movie adds to our experience in the book A Long Way Gone quite a bit I think because it gives us a better picture on what it was actually like and what they had to do. It defiantly makes the book much more clear on what the characters actually look like, and what it really looks like where the book is taken place.

The only weakness I saw in the movie was that it didn’t give much incite on what it was like for Agu when he was done fighting and put in the rehabilitation center. It could be improved by showing the affects of his body detoxing from the drugs and how he handled not having his weapons I think a little more detail at the end would have made the movie a lot better.
