Forgotten heroes
22 February 2017 | by DoNotTrustImdbSee all my reviews

Damn this one blew me out of the water! Here I thought I was going to watch some post apocalyptic film, and yeah I do like those sorts, but this film just left me breathless. I know the subject at hand is politically a very touchy subject, but no matter what side of the fence you sit at look at the damage that is still done to the best part of our generation, young men and women!

Sadly war is and has been part of humanity's own downfall, but seeing the numbers regarding the forgotten heroes at the end brought tears to this stone cold hearted tough as nails old mans eyes.

I don't know what else to say but to watch this film, one of the better on the subject for years.

10 out of 10 for me, and yeah I don't even care for the main lead actor, but man did he nail this role on the head.

Bring back our soldiers and look after those that needs us.
