Captain Peyton has an enlisted Fleet Marine Force badge on his uniform, when he should have the gold-colored officer version. While officers can wear enlisted badges if they are prior service, the FMF badge was only created in the early 2000s and thus he would not have it. See more »

Probably one of the most under-rated films I've seen.
21 February 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Wow the critics went hard on this film and I don't know why.

It's probably one of the most under-rated films I've seen, and I'm glad I did, as it was excellent.

I'm not a huge Shia LaBeouf fan but his performance in this was outstanding! I hope he wins some type of award for his amazing acting.

It was a little slow in the beginning but the back and forth between time lines was interesting enough (and kept getting more interesting) to keep me hooked in. Although I'm not a fan of back and forth time lines (I actually hate too much of it), this was done very well, and it was necessary to keep the viewer guessing and in suspense of what happens next.

The film did very well in getting a strong point across about vets and PTSD.

It's too bad the critics couldn't see the glory in this film - directing, acting, cinematography, score, etc... all top notch!

A well deserved 9/10 and a must see film!
