    LaBeouf's quivering instability creates the impression that his performance is constantly buffering on us. He's never dull — he is, in fact, a compelling actor in any circumstance — but the material ends up cheapening the experiences of so many real-life veterans, which surely was not the filmmakers' intention. show more

    Dito Montiel's silly plot machinations waste a solid performance from Shia LaBeouf. show more
