What a wonderful family. The truth must come out soon. Everyone deserves to know what truly happened.

This movie has opened up alot more questions than have answers to them. The why, who and when are never really quite clarified in this doc-movie. No question Pat Tillman is one of the most courageous, patriotic americans that has ever graced U.S. soil. But the film itself only glimpses possible fratricide scenarios and the reasons that this could have

This " movie" is just another Progressive attempt to blame conservatives for EVERYTHING!!!! Pat Tillman is a hero and this "movie" is a disgrace to his memory. It is a Michael Moore type mockcumentory of how those on the left view the world and conservatives. It's a waste of time and money.

Worst movie I ever saw. I doubt very much Pat Tillman would have wanted the country he loved so much dragged through the mud like his family does in this picture. Shame on them.

Capably narrated by Josh Brolin, Amir Bar-Lev's penetrating and vital documentary goes beyond tracking the Tillman family's investigation into Pat's death to question the motives of commanding officers and higher-ups. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
It's a fascinating film, full of drama, intrigue, tragedy and righteous indignation, but maybe its greatest accomplishment is to make you feel the death of one young man -- a truly independent thinker who hewed his own way through the world, in the finest American tradition -- as a great loss.

Emerges as the summer's first true must-see film, required viewing for everyone, but especially audiences in Washington. Full Review

The Tillman Story is a probing examination of truth, decency and the American way. It also explores deception and military propaganda and lays bare the ravages of grief. Full Review

Time Out New York
The Tillman Story balances cynical and inspirational aspects in equal measure. Pat's demise-and the media debacle around it-seems that much more tragic and enraging. Full Review
