American Warfighter (2018)
User ReviewsReview this title
As mentioned, when I first decided to watch this film it was rated at 7.5 it is now a more realistic 4.9 but it still deserves much lower.
The film starts off promising but it declines early on. The acting is atrocious and the quality of the cinematography is more akin to a group of friends making their own film in their spare time.
The ending is absolute nonsense and given this mess of a movie is dedicated to service personnel is disgraceful rather than a tribute.
Just don't bother with this nonsense.
Here is a good example that all those saying it's a great film are in some way or another associated with the film crew or simply took a bit money. Click on their rotten profiles and see for yourself.
To the the film itself: Practically zero redeeming qualities. I just added an extra star for the locations. Bad acting, amateurish directing and editing, lame combat scenes without much of an understanding on what to do, they even momentarily cease fire to have a chat while enemy combatants are closing in. Seriously? The PTSD addition could have been interesting, instead you end up thinking "WTF!?!".
So the message might have been honorable, the execution certainly was not. Watch "13 Hours" instead if you want to see pros depicting pros.
