Amazing Film That Should Be Seen By Everyone
27 November 2010 | by mapastryplaceSee all my reviews

The Response is one of the most amazing films I've ever seen. It was engaging, entertaining and beautifully written & directed. However, the strongest point for me is the film's ability to present this strong subject matter in an unbiased way. Each side is presented in such a way that you can clearly see everyone's point, yet it does Not make up your mind for you (a rarity in films today).

You do not need to be an attorney or in the military to appreciate the phenomenal subject matter. For the average layperson (like me), you'll walk away from the film with a much better understanding of the military tribunals, the struggle between what is fair versus what is safe, and - it bears repeating - thorough knowledge of each side's point so you can make up your own mind. I LOVED The Response and I left the viewing wanting more. This truly does make a great gift for everyone and will open up channels of communication with family, friends and coworkers on this and other related subjects.

This is a film that will stay with you for a very long time. Highly Recommended!
