Selleck gives a good performance.
26 June 2017 | by Harry LagsSee all my reviews

Absorbing drama about three ex-servicemen immediately after WWII trying to adjust to life as civilians. I saw this movie only once when it was played on late night Television and i never forgot it . It has always been stuck in my mind and i hope i can see it again one day. I don't know what other people think, but I think it's a good movie, and Tom Selleck gives a good performance.

I personally found this movie to be profoundly moving. I suppose it is a true drama rather than entertainment. Although it was based on WWII, the issues portrayed were similar to the ones soldiers experience today. It's one of those movies that is so engrossing that you are completely moved by it.

Conclusion - Great movie and Highly recommended viewing. 8 out of 10
