    For such a torment-filled story, the ending is surprisingly satisfying, with an important message that a lesser filmmaker might have telegraphed too much. show more

    For a well-acted movie about the horrors of war and the lure of revenge, it's surprisingly dull and starchy. show more

    Nothing if not ambitious, yet at war with itself stylistically. show more

    Besides being an excellent movie, it's a true story with a heart warming ending. Jerry

    Good movie but as was said, hard to watch sometimes and a little slow at the beginning . See it!

    five stars for an excellent film. Provokes some serious thinking about WAR..and what it does to servicemen. Traumatizes their brains, disfigures their bodies and often KILLS them. Why is peace so difficult? Colin Firth is outstanding.
