Great movie. It brings every emotion you have to light. I don't think I would recommend it to anyone who has family in the service though.
Good story but very slow paced film which led to nothing. I love the cast but not their best films
Toby macguire portrayal of PTSD and personal trauma is uncomfortably realistic. Phenomenal acting from the leading men.
I very very much enjoyed this, the depiction of how war can mess with someone was phenomenal and shown beautifully by Tobey Maguire, perfect
Decent war drama, with strong performances from all the leads. Worth watching
A gut wrenching film filled with tension, fantastic dialogue, and phenomenal performances from both Gyllenhaal and McGuire
Riveting and incredibly powerful commentary on the mental & interpersonal struggles of veterans and their families.
Some of the best acting I’ve seen in a movie from all 3 leads. Plot was unpredictable and intriguing with 3 characters that you root for
Amazing performance by Tobey in this film about the effects of PTSD
I literally cried my eyes out watching this. It shows one of the terrible parts of our world and human. Great work though
