This is a story about American heroes, their courage, their pain, their humanity. Written by Peace Arch Entertainment

Military men back from Iraq after death of friend.
28 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an awful movie. I had high hopes going in and was completely let down when I watched this.

The acting was horrible and unconvincing. Every bit of dialog was forced and overly dramatic without a talent to deliver a convincing line.

I guess I was expecting a movie like Day Zero but it was a lot closer to Plan Nine From Outer Space. Just terrible.

Its a shame really because I have been hoping to see some movies about the soldiers and the things they are going through over in Iraq and Afganistan that will show the truth behind the bravery of our troops and the mission they are on.

This however is not the film. Good story. Very poorly executed.
