Realistic war drama with almost entire emphasis on drama instead on combat
31 December 2017 | by DVR_BraleSee all my reviews

Seeing Amy Schumer starring I had to restrict myself from immediately giving it a perfect score of one. Thankfully, I gave it a try. Thank You for Your Service seeks to put on screen difficulties veterans face upon return from war zone and in my opinion that was done pretty solid.

You don't get to see military combat too much - only several minutes are given to war footage. Instead, entire focus has been placed on common, everyday struggle young veterans face. I'm not from USA, but TYFYS certainly criticizes the way American society treats veterans. The thing I feared the most before seeing it was that it's going to be too pathetic in a way only Americans can make it. Luckily (or strangely), it didn't feel that way at all.

This movie is ultimately the story about forgiveness: here you can see how hard can it be to forgive, how devastating effect not being able to forgive can have and how life changing forgiveness can be.

If you're in a mood for a war-drama with almost entire emphasis on drama, TYFYS may stay with you for a while.

P.S. Bruce Springsteen has made a track called "Military Cadence" they used as a credit song. Be sure to check it out.
