Movie Reviews

Thank God for Nova, but be clear about what exactly this is
doppelganger | Chicago | 02/07/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"What you can't see on the cover say's: "Inside An American Support Hospital" or CASH (just like MASH, yes the TV show). I thought I would see some 'Battle Footage' which it seems is almost IMPOSSIBLE to come by these days, and you definitely will NOT SEE ANY in this video. It IS amazing, they set up a virtual hospital in the combat zone of Iraq to perform surgeries and everything.

The troubling part is that they realize they have to turn away so many people (civilians) because they have rules of conduct; "Life-Limbs-Eyes". So if your going to die next week in a Bahgdad Hospital, so be it. They show THAT kind of trauma. The head surgeon actually makes the decision NOT to give a bomb victim a crucial drug, because Americans MAY need it later. The guy of course dies in a day or two. Really sad stuff. I never would have seen this if I knew what it was.
