True Hero
21 April 2013 | by seulartsSee all my reviews

I have to say, I don't like war movies, simply because they are predictable and they all look alike, but this is way way different than I would have anticipated.

For once, a true hero as portrayed as he should be, a man with prejudices and a sense of the moral. This guy goes through hell and back and admits to his mistake, even when he is place in the position of a man with temporary amnesia. To make the right thing in a situation like his, that in my opinion means to be a real hero.

And of course we have the American factor, that is shown in it's true nature, the violent and suppressing power that it is. The true crime belong to the invaders not to the invaded. So the message is loud and clear and should spark some of the brighter people out there what reality is all about (a deformed truth).

I give it a 10/10 just because it's original and the plot is so well written that it rely makes you think, it can't get more real than this.
