Storyline

The story sees Courtney as Cal, a by-the-book police officer who makes ends meet as a Marine Corps reservist along with his rowdy and inseparable group of childhood friends. When Cal's younger, reckless half-brother Oyster (Wolff) accidentally kills a guy in a bar fight and tries to flee, Cal forces him to face the music. After an unfair sentence, Oyster fights for survival in a dangerous Pennsylvania prison system while Cal and his friends are deployed to fight the lethal insurgency in Iraq. Overseas, Cal's world is shaken, and after he barely makes it home alive, he resolves to break Oyster out of prison - no matter the cost.

good enough
4 October 2019 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

Its not an all at stake action thriller youre delving into, its more like a rough tough emotional drama between young men and their buddy pals. its not filled with romance, just some featherly ones, but the emotions may be turned on by some of the story.

its a film about family, brotherhood, deadly pranks, prisoners,soldiers, grunch and forgiveness. though the plot has some abrubt and short cutted shifts that could have been an audience blockbuster if avoided and comleted the right way, the acting are well above average, especially in the first half.

its a kind of a sore revenge/redemtion story that will be condemned by some and hailed by others. the grumpy old man didnt turn it of and did not take any breaks in the viewin , so it isnt that bad at all. a 6 at the strong side.recommended
