Trivia

The camera sometimes turn black and white during conversations. This is supposed to be a way to express the inward feeling of the character. This same technique was used in Natural Born Killers (1994). That film starred Robert Downey, Jr., who was a frequent collaborator of Tom Holland in the MCU. See more »

Goofs

Cherry takes Xanax, an anxiety medication. The Army does not allow recruits who have "mental disorder" like ADHD, anxiety, panic, behavioral disorders, or dyslexia to join. Any medication taken must be stopped to prove that a recruit can function substantially without it. So Cherry could not have taken an anxiety medication and still been allowed to join the Army.

Pretty damn good
15 March 2021 | by sammybenoSee all my reviews

I don't understand the low ratings. All this film does is show how much range Tom Holland and the Russo brothers have, that their not confined to the Marvel movies. Just watch and form your own opinion. Its good.
