It is surely irresponsible to insert significant, fictitious incidents into movies marketed as true stories. Besides which, James Brown's life story was about as dramatic as they come. If you can't turn that into a compelling movie without inventing non-existent shotgun fire, nobody's life story is safe.
It was a haunting discovery: a terrified 11-year-old girl cowering in the corner of a ransacked house three days after her village had been attacked in a horrific act of ethnic cleansing. This scene may be reminiscent of one that occurred during the Rwanda genocide. But this happened in February, not 20 years ago.
