What an excellent movie
2 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I do not know where to begin. Since I only have a few words that can be posted. Let me say that this movie was quite a tearful watch for my wife and I. As with most other reviews, I too will say that the last 20 min of the movie was most likely, the greatest ending to a movie that EVER came out of Hollywood. Unbelievable. I would love to buy a bunch and include them free with every single purchase of my customers. I have never enjoyed a heart felt movie such as this. Most of, it is about time that someone acknowledged the our brothers and sisters fighting to keep America free. If you have any decency about you, this is a movie worth watching. WITH THE ENTIRE FAMILY. It all comes together at the end.
