After reading some of the early reviews for the movie, I went into it with some fairly low expectations. However, by the time the film ended I had a much different opinion on it than others have had.
This story is by no means original. If you're looking for an original war film, look elsewhere. A lot of this movie is very clichéd but that's not to say that it's a bad thing. This movie is mainly an after-the-war film, so don't expect a lot of war action here. The film focuses heavily on the psychological aspects of war and the damage war can do to the human psyche.this drama about three American soldiers trying to adjust to life after Iraq. Samuel L. Jackson stars as a doctor who returns to his practice only to find his life unraveling, and Eva Mendes portrays the wife who's overjoyed to see him but disturbed to find he isn't the man she knew before the war.
This movie is very realistic and I feel that the film accurately portrays the struggle of soldiers returning home from Iraq and serves as a reminder to people about the sacrifices these young men and women are making for us each and every day. Director Irwin Winkler needs to be given credit here for making a film about thee lives of our soldiers and what they face upon returning home from war without using the film to voice any opinions of the war itself. The film needs strong characters and with a outstanding cast it gets it from Samuel L. Jackson,Jessica Biel who gives a strong performance,Brian Presley,and 50 Cent aka Curtis Jackson who wasn't as bad in the film as many might think. Home of The Brave feels like a film that could of easily been a Television movie with it's dramatic theme but don't let that hold you back from seeing this film as it's, gripping, touching and Thought provoking. Released by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. **** Out Of *****
