User ReviewsAdd a Review
Chris Small (Matt Keeslar) is a model soldier who went through finest training, but nothing could prepare him for the horrors of "Desert Storm" action. Fiery clouds on the horizon, deterrent alarms, decomposing body of dead fellow soldiers are some of the memories he brought home to Memphis, where he was gratefully welcomed by his friends and family. Despite his return, he is not happy because he came back sick and changed. Movie is about struggle of his family and some other people to find out and show the truth to the nation.
This excellent movie reveals hidden facts of that big military operation, concentrating on important and cover-up story about real causes of health issues of large number of U.S. Gulf War veterans. Producer Rod Holcomb took this itchy and hard subject and transfered it to the screen, giving amazingly detailed answers to questions many wouldn't dare to ask. Excellent rolls of Ted Danson, Jeniffer Jason Leigh and Matt Keeslar, who did a great job featuring proud u.s. soldier. " *movie description by Croatian RTL, translated by me
How many innocent civilian casualties there has been, how many lives perished and how blatantly stupid the perpetrators are.
So, let me ask you - if American soldier kills women and children apart from enemy, its OK, but if government accidentally kills their own forces by deadly chemicals while killing many civilians as well, it is not? Your logic fails, gentleman.
I'll give it 5 for the solid performance and 1 to everything else, 3 in total.
