Six lives, six battles, one city.
Thousands of activists arrive in Seattle, Washington in masses to protest the WTO Ministerial Conference of 1999 (World Trade Organization). Although it began as a peaceful protest with a goal of stopping the WTO talks, it escalated into a full-scale riot and eventually, a State of Emergency that pitted protesters against the Seattle Police Department and the National Guard.

Decent drama about the protests at the WTO meeting in Seattle in 1999. Loads of great actors don't make everything golden though. The film falls a bit short in execution. With all that talent this movie could have been so much more. Especially when there's no shortage of stories of those events back in '99.

The movie is watchable, but again...could have great.
