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.

One of the best films of the year
6 October 2019 | by paulwdavisonSee all my reviews

First off, the Rottentomatoes score is another example of just how disconnected critics are from mainstream audiences. Unfortunately this film currently holds a score in the teens, which is no way a reflection of the quality of this film, and those reviewers should be ashamed of themselves for hurting this movie's chances of being widely seen.

I am a vet and will say that this film is one of the most accurate portrayals of the psyche of the American fighting man I have seen in a long while. This is not an "action" film per se though there are expertly executed and very tense action scenes throughout the journey from upstate New York,to Iraq, and back home. It is character driven piece about the love of actual brothers and brothers-in-arms and the lengths that they will go to for one another. At the same time it tackles the challenge of being a citizen-soldier and integrating back into the world after a deployment (the Marines in the film are all reservists), the horrors of PTSD, alcoholism, sibling rivalry, the unfairness of the criminal justice system, unrequited love, and provides a glimpse into the lifestyle of blue collar working men and their blighted community.

My wife, who doesn't care for military themed films, loved the movie as well and we were both riveted through the expertly crafted rising tension and gripping climax. The performances were superb throughout ... was frankly shocked by Jai Courtney's presence and gravitas, as well as the performances of the excellently-cast supporting players. The cinematography and score were all top-notch. I would compare this film to something like "The Town" or "Hell or High Water." Highly recommend!
