Overview

Directed by Daniel Calparsoro, who made his feature debut in 1995 with his release of Leap Into the Void, Guerreros follows a group of Spanish engineers working at a Kosovo encampment in 1999 as part of a peacekeeping unit. When Vidal (Eloy Azoran), one of the engineers, witnesses a civilian being abducted by a gang of Serbs, he attempts to step in. Things, however, did not go as well as Vidal may have hoped--he's beaten to a pulp, reprimanded by his superior officer (Eduardo Noriega), and made unpopular with the rest of the squad. Meanwhile, during a mission to restore electricity to a prominent village, the peacekeepers are caught up in a stand-off with some Serbian snipers. After one engineer is killed and an interpreter loses a limb, Alonso, one of Vidal's engineering partners, begins his ascent from mild-mannered peacekeeper into an authoritative warrior.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
A slick piece of work, Guerreros follows a few tense hours in the lives of a group of Spanish army engineers stationed in war-torn Kosovo. Sent on a mission to restore an Albanian village's power supply, the idealistic peacekeepers soon get sucked into guerrilla fighting between the Serbs and Albanians. Directed with shallow flair by Daniel Calparsoro, the movie boasts the bells and whistles of a state-of-the-art Hollywood production. The grandstanding direction may strive for maximum gloss and gore, but Guerreros can't help but be compelling anyway for the relevance of its subject. Opening with the cold-blooded murder of Albanian civilians by a squad of Serb paramilitaries, the movie initially seems poised to be a screed in favor of humanitarian intervention. As the body count piles up, however, the movie's ambivalence about military peacekeeping becomes more pronounced. The slide down the slippery slope of good intentions seems to suggest that interventionism can only lead to disaster. But given the harrowing massacre with which it opens, it's a conclusion that seems confused at best. Perhaps too concerned with the logistics of battle to think the issue through, Guerreros is afflicted with the very qualities it criticizes: an earnest heart, but a muddled head.
