      80% Tomatometer 5 Reviews On February 24, 2022, Russia invades Ukraine. Shortly thereafter, the International Criminal Court (ICC) issues an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin for the abduction of children from Ukraine and for associated war crimes. Fast-forward to October 7, 2023. Hamas launches a cruel massacre of Israeli civilians. Israel responds with the largest-ever offensive against Gaza. The war threatens to escalate. ICC Chief Prosecutor Karim Khan travels to the Middle East. And he announces that he will prosecute war crimes of any kind, on both sides. The documentary WAR AND JUSTICE tells the 25-year history of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in its mission to end the most serious crimes against humanity. But once war is launched, can the ensuing crimes be prevented at all? Or is former Nuremberg prosecutor Ben Ferencz right when he says that the greatest war crime of all is war itself?

      Ronak Kotecha ReviewRon “Justice is the only hope for peace” - is sure to ring on in one’s ears. One only hopes now that it does the same for the errant powers-that-are. Rated: 4/5 Jun 13, 2024 Full Review Kenneth R. Morefield 1More Film Blog As more and more recent conflicts are folded into the narrative, any differences between them get glossed over in favor of a "war is bad" message. Easy enough to agree, but is that the sum total of the argument? Rated: 2/4 Jun 5, 2024 Full Review Morgan Rojas Cinemacy A politically charged exploration of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and its importance in keeping order in an increasingly disordered world. A definite must-watch. May 27, 2024 Full Review Tony Asankomah GhMovieFreak "War & Justice" is a powerful and evocative documentary that not only chronicles the efforts of key figures like Luis Moreno-Ocampo and Benjamin Ferencz but also serves as a rallying cry for global action against the horrors of war.  Rated: 4/5 May 24, 2024 Full Review Victor Pineyro Seventh Art Studio All in all, the film is about the people that are asking the right questions to turn humanity to its more just, humane and peaceful path. It doesn't stay in theory though, becoming quite visually brutal sometimes. Incredible film. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 9/10 May 21, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
