Product Description

Psychological war drama starring Samuel L. Jackson. Shortly after receiving the news that they will soon be reunited with their families back in the United States, an army unit serving in Iraq is deployed on a humanitarian mission to deliver medical supplies to a remote Iraqi village. Upon arriving in the village, the unit is viciously ambushed and many lives are lost. Now, as the surviving members of the battalion return home and attempt to readjust to civilian life, the physical injuries and psychological scars sustained during that tragic event continue to take a heavy emotional toll on the war-torn soldiers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Miss! 9 Mar 2008
By C. J. P
Format:DVD
Very disappointing, the films main point would seem be that soldiers sacrifice a lot in war, limbs, mental health or their lives and that people back home either object to the war they are fighting or do-not pay much attention to it. Sam L is as good as ever but given the fact that the film misses on many fronts its not going to win him any Oscar nominations! The battle sequences are adequate but nothing in comparison to say Black Hawk Down, there seems to be a nod towards the Dear Hunter - miss - not even close! Not the worst film I have seen but not that great either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as I read in the opinions 20 April 2008
Format:DVD
Opinions and comments about this movie vary a lot - from * to *****. Maybe because I was not expecting too much of it, I got more than I thought I would. It is a very sad movie. Fortunately not pathetic or over-patriotic as these themes often are. Not for every body. But those who want to see what happens with the heroes of the other war movies after all the credits. I liked it in the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another lazy UK edition 18 Jan 2010
Format:Blu-ray
This is my first review, but this is my 3rd bluray mastered in UK that doesn't have ANY subtitles (The other two being "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada" and "Army of darkness". Two movies I didnt watch yet 'cause I have to come with a way to extract the movie from the bluray and get the subtitles somewhere else...)

Picture quality it's superb, audio is OK I Guess (I only have 2.1 speakers, so I cannot tell you more).

English is not my native language (dont mind my signature). I do OK normally, since I've been practicing since I was 9, but the first time I watch a movie I like to know for sure what are they saying. If someone whispers or its a loud conversation, I cannot understand that easy. And here its impossible.So thats my only negative point.

Format:DVD
I bought this film on the premise that it would be an interesting change from the bog standard 'guns, guns, guns, oo look an explosion, more guns,' war film (which on the whole, are generally quite good). I thought the idea of the film, being about the psychological struggle of soldiers trying to re-integrate themselves into society, is brilliant and one that hasn't often been explored. However, the film barely develops this point.

The reason it fails to deliver this theme effectively is that there is not enough development of character or emotion. It opens with a short (below average) action sequence of an ambush on a squad of soldiers who are soon to be discharged and allowed to go home. when the soldiers do get home however, they find themselves all of a sudden mentally incapable of dealing with life at home. As an audience, we only see them in the war for less than 10 minutes of the film, so we dont realy see the harsh conditions they have supposedly endured, making their sudden struggle to re-adjust to home life seem slightly feeble.
Samuel L Jackson (who, aside from Jessica Biel, gives one of the very few convincing performances) has probably got the strongest character story and development, but even then we dont find out the true reason he is haunted by the war (which is not the opening ambush as it is suggested in the plot) until we near the end of the film.
Brian Presley's character is also given little development. For example, we are given little or no indication as to why his father hates him, or what it was that was so hard for him to deal with, that he had to go back to the war, we are just expected to know and understand. It is for this exact reason that i think the film fails to achieve its goal.
