Ambitious and excellent
13 April 2011 | by See all my reviews

American Son is an extraordinary work of art. It tells the story of a young man named Mike (played by Nick Cannon.) Mike has joined the marines. He is fresh out of boot camp and is going to be deployed to Iraq in 96 hours. He gets to spend 96 hours with his family and friends, but nobody knows that he's shipping out to Iraq and he's afraid of telling them. This is a thought provoking, sad, emotional, fascinating movie. There are many other adjectives that I could add, but you get what I'm saying. The story is great. The pacing is great. the performances are all around fantastic. The characters are well rounded and likable. What's not to love?
