Goofs

When Sergeant Emery is driving his car with Staff Sergeant Schumann riding in the passenger seat, notice that the outside shots show a silver Dodge Challenger (2-door) but inside shots show what appears to be a Dodge Charger (4-door). In any case, it's clear that there are back doors to the car with their own full windows which is inconsistent with the exterior appearance of the car. See more »

some compelling PTSD moments
26 March 2018 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

It's 2007. Adam Schumann (Miles Teller) and his squad return home from Iraq. It's been a difficult tour and each one faces his own demons. Adam's wife Saskia (Haley Bennett) is desperate to help him but he's unwilling to open up to her. Upon arriving, he's accosted by Amanda Doster, the wife of his dead comrade.

First, thank you for your service. There is always a problem when the movie starts with "Inspired by". It couldn't even be "Based on". For a fake story, it needs to be more concentrated. It rambles around with too many characters. Miles Teller does some good work as well as the other actors. The PTSD stories are individually compelling but the plot is lacking. The telling is flat as the audience waits for the inevitable reveal at the end. I would be more drawn in if the movie stays with Teller and Bennett. I find compelling moments but the overall viewing experience is less than thrilling.
