User Reviews

Underrated gem.
6 October 2018 | by cleft_asunderSee all my reviews

It's been more than a year since I saw this film, and I'm still recommending it to people. It's character driven and very believable, and whatever shortfalls the plot has are easily made up by the believable cast, dialogue, and interactions between the characters. The men are masculine and tough, and the women are feminine and tough, so both sexes are depicted beautifully. Really, the cast was perfectly picked and you feel like you're watching a real Dominican family.

Is it one of those films that is so serious that you regretted watching it? Definitely not! Everything is just right and I would say the film is for anyone looking for a serious film that is easy to watch. This is definitely not just for veterans, yet veterans will really love this film. A similar (non military) film to this would be 'Into the Furnace' with Woody Harlesson because of how manly that film is, so if you loved that film, you'll like this one. (Woody is such a bada** in that film, and a master actor.)

Not much to say otherwise except that you should go see it. Yes I'm one of those guys that loved 'The Thin Red Line' in theaters, but no... it's not slow like that. This one carters to a much wider audience.
