Beyond Borders is a 2003 drama starring Angelina Jolie and Clive Owen and directed by Martin Campbell (Goldeneye, Casino Royale). Filmed in Canada, Namibia and Thailand, it was commended by relief organizations for bringing attention to the plight of refugees and the efforts of relief workers, but it was not a critical or commercial success.
The following guns were used in Beyond Borders
