“A gripping story with riveting performances. More poignant than your typical war movie showing both great conflict and the cost of war at home.”
“A riveting account of the life of a sniper in today’s modern army, this film is helped by great performances from a cast of recognizable faces…well done, realistic and solid.”
“Fantastic job of translating to the screen. I always felt I was where the story was taking me and that’s right down there in the trenches with these confused American soldiers on the European frontlines. I mean, there are tanks and planes and authentic weaponry and uniforms, not to mention battle scenes. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting such incredible production value and matching it is the amazing cast, each member bringing back to life these soldiers that co-existed in March’s living nightmare.
A gentle little comedy…vividly nostalgic. Well acted, designed and scored.
