A pretty decent flick about doctors in Africa attempting to help the victims of civil wars. The overriding story is that of two doctors who fall in love, are separated for ten years, then attempt to recapture their lost relationship. Graphic bloody violence is the back drop for the story, so gird your loins if you wish to watch it.

Couldn't hold my attention. Overrated actors in this movie. The love story bit could've been left out. It was needless. The thing that point out to me in this flick is the anti-Jesus anti Christian message from westerners. Bad trend Hollywood and industry is setting. Theron to me isn't a great actor. Just another pretty overrated actress. Her narration if that was her was bland.

This was much more graphic than it needed to be and the love story wasn't much of a love story. She's the CEO of a humanitarian aid organization who flies to Africa to visit her cousin then immediately begins a love affair with her cousin's boyfriend, an adrenaline junkie doctor. She falls for him hard, not caring that he was her cousin's boyfriend or that her cousin now has AIDS. She follows him into more and more dangerous situations until they eventually are caught somewhere they shouldn't be and a child dies because of it. That's the "last face" that she sees before leaving Africa and going home. Does he follow her? No. He's addicted to the adrenaline. Depressing, graphic, and pointless. A Sean Penn film. Figures.

Inhuman atrocities that humans do unto others. Where is the UN ?

Well directed and very moving. Charlize has never looked more beautiful.

ZERO out of 5 stars. What a piece of boring shit. Incoherent, incomprehensible, and utterly dreadful. Sound was too loud and the dialogue was barely audible. It was so bad we had to put on the subtitles just to follow along. We lasted about 12 minutes then bailed to our second movie: Die Hard. I'd rather have hot rusty needles jammed in my eyes than watch another minute of The Last Face - even with Charlize Theron in it. Sean Penn SUCKS as a director.

Wow, that's nasty. I'll give it a miss. Thanks for the warning.

I made it about ten minutes into the movie until a young man was (rapturously) explaining how awesome it was to dance with a girl who had watched her sister get raped to death, then got raped herself in every orifice AND even though she was leaking urine she was still dancing with him. I suppose the movie could have gotten better, but I'm not watching any more misogyny and perversion dresses up as "art." I'll be glad when the pervert purge of 2017 gets some of the worst offenders out of Hollywood.
