  • Bringing a much needed personal perspective to a war that has claimed thousands of American lives, the film nonetheless suffers from a hagiographic quality that, from everything we hear expressed about its self-effacing subject, would have disturbed even him. show more

  • We’re reminded not just of sacrifice, but of those to whom service is a genuine calling and what that bandied-about word “hero” really means. show more

  • One wonders if the filmmakers ever asked themselves who their film was intended for, or if it was at least a consciously self-serving effort from the outset. show more
