Riveting, all the more so because it actually happened.

Mankind's cruelty to his own kind never ceases to horrify me. How can one love his own family and not realize that others love their own just as much? How can you love any child, and then turn around and kill the child of another? I'll never understand this. Shot Through the Heart is a powerful film that deals with these issues. What separates the two main characters is not as this site says, "political and religious issues," but the fact that one character is okay with being a sniper who kills innocent women and children, because they were born in a different religion or ethnic group, and the other character is not--he kills only those who are targeting these innocent victims.

I'd never heard of this film, but somehow came across it through Cable Tv when nothing else was on. This is a no regret movie. You actually walk away learning about war, hatred at it's worst and watch as 2 bestfriend become enemies.
A orgianl storyline, and somewhat factual piece it's captivating and very disturbing..Graphic and Violent..It's a 1 time watch for me. Yet i enjoyed the realistic aspect of it, I recommend this to someone with a strong stomach and open mind.

Honest illustration of the breakdown of civilization through the lives of two friends who find themselves in opposite sides of the ethnic conflict in the former Yugoslavia. Although the movie only hints at the most horrific carnage and abuses, it doesn't sugarcoats the guilt and responsibility of the Serb aggressors.

Again, we learn not to judge a book by its cover. This is a complex and compelling movie.

The horrors of war are examined from the view points of lifelong friends (Linus Roache, Vincent Perez), who end up on opposing sides in the civil war in Sarajevo. One is an expert marksman, who trains the snipers used to terrify the city and the other becomes a freedom fighter, who rejects his friend's offer to gain an escape from the city.

Well acted and well written. A bit one-sided, but the performances give this TV movie some really good moments. Besides, how can you go wrong watching the second Crow face off against Batman's dad in a sniper war? Beats the hell out of "Savior" or "Behind Enemy Lines"... that's for sure. Though, just about anything beats the hell out of "Behind Enemy Lines"...

Good movie, though its muslim bias and doenst talk about the muslim atrocities, still a good film

A HBO TV-movie said to be inspired by true events during the Sarajevo war in 1992. A bit too plain & cliche as for the narrative itself.

Showed what a personal war it was. More sympathetic to the Muslim side, but not unbalanced.

I can't help it. I'm on a Linus Roache kick.

I tried to give this movie a chance. Being of a Serbian background that was difficult. This movie is sickly one sided. I had a very difficult time watching it from start to finish. I would recommend a less bias movie like "No Man's Land" or "Pretty Village Pretty Flame"

What can I say? TV movies are getting better than the big screen ones. One word about this one. BEAUTIFUL. I'll spell it B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!

That's how good it is.

A very moving film. It was recommended to me by a Bosnian friend who was on the last plane out before Sarajevo fell into chaos. It's hard to imagine what the people that were left behind had to live through and had to become to endure.

Very good film, the relationship between the two main charcters is very believable and it has a great ending - not for the faint hearted tough.
