Great movie, and this is NOT a fake review
23 September 2019 | by stephena-levesqueSee all my reviews

Why I liked this movie is because of how Jerry G. Angelo perfectly captured the complexity of the hero suffering (PTSD) because of his success as a hero. When some of you have lived longer and are aware of how "we can become victims of our own success" then you may come to enjoy such movies from this level of appreciation, if no other. In the movie Troy when Achilles was told "...But if you go to Troy, you will never come back... for your glory walks hand-in-hand with your doom." ...and since becoming aware of it, I have seen this dynamic play out, such as when a fellow employee who is busy and productive, gets even more work thrown at him until it becomes unsustainable for him and gets fired or he moves on. American Warfighter carries this truth further down the road of cinematic lore. For this reason, I say it's a great movie and highly watchable! Well done Jerry :)
