Movie Review by Tim
September 21st, 2008

STOP your LOSS of money on this.

Favorite Movie Quote: "Who wants to play lets start shootin' people?"

First thing is first....Ryan Phillippe's Texas accent is what killed this film for me for the most part...just plain wretched. Phillippe should never be cast as this type of role...he will always play the rich spoiled millionaire type better such as his character of Sebastian Valmont in Cruel Intentions.

I am looking forward to more films about the Iraq wars coming out because its something that should be touched on such as the Vietnam films that were thrown out every couple of months in the 1980's. This however was more about soldiers coming home after the war rather then dealing with actual combat.

I found the film to be entertaining during the first 45 minutes but then it seemed as if the plot just died and as the viewer I had a hard time figuring out how they were really going to drag this average story into a full feature film AND keep it entertaining the whole time. Well my thoughts seemed to pay off because they failed miserable to entertain me the whole film..in fact I couldn't wait for the credits to role so I could move on to something else....the cats litter box needed to be changed and somehow that seemed more exciting.

One of the writers Mark Richard estimated that there were no less than 65 drafts of the script..........this is just amazing to me how they could write it that many times and still make it suck.

I rented this film on DVD and would not recommend even the rental fee....I would wait and catch it on HBO or another cable channel and save the money.
