1- Nothing like a little bang-bang to get the heart started, Maddy.
– Whatever you say, Corbauld. -Come on, love. Don’t be like that.
Story’s played out, hasn’t it? Government bad, rebels worse.
No one gives a toss anymore. Know what I mean?
This medicine will make you strong…
…make you invisible to your enemies.
Bullets will bounce off you.
Superboy Killer, yes, huh? Commando.
Foreigners are the cause of the problems.
Poppy Sankoh say, “Overthrow those who would exploit you. ”
I am Baby Killer.
– I am the Master of Disaster. -You will be strong.
I am Born Trouble.
I am See Me No More.
You’d think they’d want at least one decent road in this place.
I’m gonna have to start charging an entrance fee. Oh, God!
– Look out! -Shit!
– You all right? -Fine.
– Everyone all right, huh? -Yeah, I’m fine.
Let me see that. You okay?
– Yeah. -All right.
Quietly, now. Quietly.
Kamajors. Local militia protecting their homes, huh?
– Do not look them in the eye. -No.
Who are you?
We are friends.
We are not R.U.F.! We are not government!
We will kill all of you!
Excuse me. Excuse me?
Hi, I’m Maddy Bowen with Vital Affairs magazine.
Wonder if I could take your picture. I’m just gonna get my camera.
I’ve heard about your struggle. I’d love to know more about it.
Would you mind if I took your picture? Everyone together?
Everyone could all come in together.
– Who is this woman? -We are friends.
Is that okay? If everyone could come closer.
If you come over here and come in nice and close. That’s good.
Yeah. That’s great. And we’ll get one with all of us.
There you go. That’s perfect.
Reminds me of my wife.
How about one together? Us together, what do you think?
I’ll come in like this, yeah?
So do you think they’ve read your work?
Hey, get them, get them, get them.
– I got a score. I got a score. -You missed.
Where have you come from?
– Where did you come from? -Where have you come from?
That’s right. Yeah. From New York. From America.
I don’t have anything for you.
Don’t bother the people now. Let them come in.
Thank you, Ubani.
You can leave them here. I take responsibility.
Good. Now they are your problem.
My name is Benjamin Margai.
Danny Archer. This is Maddy Bowen.
– Hello. How are you? -Very well, thank you.
I am Solomon Vandy, from Shenge.
What should I make of your companions?
He- She is… They are journalists.
Ah. And I suppose you are, too.
I’m the cameraman?
The Belgians were the first to chop off limbs in Africa.
King Leopold took one hand for every hundredth slave in the Congo…
…to keep them in line.
Many of these children were taken by the RUF.
We have taken them back.
Some of them have been made to do horrible things.
We are trying to bring them back to life.
Let me show you.
Imagine doing all this, huh?
What’s your excuse?
Well, it’s gotten hard to go back to sipping lattes and talking interest rates.
So you’re an action junkie, huh?
Three out of five ex-boyfriends recently polled…
…say that I prefer to be in a constant state of crisis.
Maybe I just give a shit.
You were good today.
You know that?
“- that sometimes they forgot to close the door.
She also wrote about her sister Josie…
…who was very ill and who had to be taken to hospital. ”
So how many attacks have there been in the area?
I have known most of the rebels since they were children.
The local commander is still afraid I will come after him with my ruler.
So you think because your intentions are good, they’ll spare you, huh?
My heart always told me that people are inherently good.
My experience suggests otherwise.
But what about you, Mr. Archer?
In your long career as a journalist…
…would you say that people are mostly good?
I’d say they’re just people.
Exactly. It is what they do that makes them good or bad.
A moment of love, even in a bad man…
…can give meaning to a life.
None of us knows which path will lead us to God.
It’s palm wine.
– Jesus Christ. -Yeah, yeah. It takes getting used to, huh?
– Drank that as a boy. -In Rhodesia?
I take notes.
The Shona have a word for me.
– It means “white boy in Africa. ” -When did you leave?
I didn’t leave.
I got sent away to South Africa in 1978 when the munts overran us.
Then you joined the army?
Yeah. Yeah, I did my time in Angola.
– The 32 Battalion. -That’s right.
You know, contrary to what you might think about us…
…we fought with the blacks, huh? Yeah. Side by side.
There was no apartheid in a foxhole. The colonel always used to tell us that.
– This is Colonel Coetzee? -Yeah.
Then, of course, it’s 1994. No more army.
No more apartheid.
Truth and reconciliation and all of that rubbish, you know.
We fought and died together, you know?
Black and white. Most people back home didn’t even know we were at war.
We thought we were fighting Communism…
…but in the end, it was all about who gets what, you know?
Ivory, oil, gold;
So one day I decided, “Fuck it,” you know?
“I’m gonna get mine. ”
You gonna steal his diamond?
That diamond is my ticket out of this godforsaken continent.
That doesn’t answer the question.
My dad came home from the war in ’69.
And it took him…
…about 20 years to get right.
You Americans love to talk about your feelings, huh?
So, what does that mean? What does that mean?
– Got a thing for messed-up vets now? -Shut up.
You lost both your parents.
That’s a polite way of putting it, yeah.
Mom was raped and shot…
…and Dad was decapitated and hung from a hook in the barn.
I was 9.
Sometimes I wonder…
…will God ever forgive us for what we’ve done to each other?
Then I look around and I realize…
…God left this place a long time ago.
What’s the point, huh?
Oh, shit. Keep moving, huh?
– What? -Drive at them. They’ll panic.
Do you know where the word “infantry” comes from?
It means “child soldier. ” They are just children.
– Stop! Stop! RUF on the road! -Hi. Hello. Hello.
Hello, little brothers.
– RUF on the road! -Yeah, yeah. What is your names?
I’m Dead Body. Who is this motherfucker?
We are teachers on our way to Kono.
Only RUF on the road.
– RUF only! -Yes, yes, I understand that.
– Only RUF! -But son, this is-
Don’t move! Don’t move! Fuck.
Jesus Christ! Maddy, press your hand against the exit wound there, huh?
– Got it. -Keep it there, huh?
Whatever you do, don’t talk, all right?
Is there any wine left in that jug?
– Here. -Pour it all over everything, huh?
The colonel’s gonna have a medic at the airstrip in Kono.
– How far is it? -You said not to talk.
A comedian, huh?
– How’s his pulse? -I can feel it sometimes.
– Hold it right there. -Stop.
I was just trying to keep pressure on the wound.
– He’s lost a lot of blood. -You’ll be all right, huh?
I’ll check on him in the tent in a little bit. Thank you.
Look who’s alive, eh?
I told the H you’d be back.
I’m afraid we’re evacuating all non-military personnel, miss.
Transport touches down at 1600.
She’s with me, all right?
No exceptions, pal. This is gonna be ugly. Colonel doesn’t want an audience.
Is I.R.’s presence here known to other African nations?
– She’s with you? -Yeah.
Come on. The colonel’s this way.
Give me a minute, huh?
We block their escape by blowing the bridge.
You made it out. Well done.
Negative, Kilo Foxtrot, stand by.
– Colonel, sir. -So must be real, then.
Well, you’re part of this operation now.
First we snuff everything that moves out there, then we find your diamond.
Go get kitted. Yes?
Move, move, move!
– Go get your kit. -Will do, chum. Will do.
It’s go time, all right? Meet me behind the tents.
They say he’ll live.
…I need you to do me one last favor.
Tell that guard you wanna put him…
…on the cover of Soldier of Fortune magazine for me.
You’re going in.
You and Solomon.
You’re going in now.
Your plane leaves in a few minutes, huh?
You’re an idiot.
– What if I wanted to go in with you? -I’d say no.
– What if I insist? -I’d insist back.
It’s my story.
Your story is Van De Kaap, all right? That stone is mine.
I’m not leaving here without it, you understand?
Please, just give me two minutes.
– Hello. -Hi.
My name is Maddy Bowen. I’m with Vital Affairs magazine.
I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions.
Well, that depends what they are.
Oh, I see you’re familiar with our devious ways, aren’t you?
Okay, so I’ll start with something simple.
