Decent film wouldn't recommend
3 April 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film doesn't cover much of the actual torture that happened in Abu Ghraib but it somewhat gets the picture through. The soldier has a bond with one of the inmates which basically has nothing to do with the movie. You begin to wonder whether the film is about the soldier waiting to go home or his relationship with the inmate. It skips through days and you start to lose track of what was actually happening. The ending was pretty bad didn't explain much, leaves you wondering what happened to the soldier. Had to watch it over a period of two days because I lost interest about half way through but I still wanted to give it another shot and finish watching it, for a debut film is wasn't all that bad, so I would give Luke Moran credit for that.
