Confused at first, and then bam! It hit me.
26 February 2017 | by banglaineySee all my reviews

I must say, I tend to really like films that Le Bouf plays in. He has a knack for picking good films, he just really does. As much as you might hate him personally, he knows a good story when he sees one.

This film I had heard very little about, I knew it had something to do with war, but not much else. Seems it is highly underrated. I'm not even sure if it had a theatrical release or not.

When the film opened I was pretty skeptical. It seemed boring as all hell. Slow moving. Not very interesting. Military guy, yadda yadda. The opening was tinted with confusing "flashback" type scenes, boring paranorama or desolated wasteland that wasn't explained and other apocalyptic type scenes that didn't seem to fit into the rest of the movie. I kind of started losing interest and was barely paying attention, when all of a sudden...

The movie took a crazy turn, and I realized what was really going on, and why everything seemed confusing and off with the timing. It all came together, and I was sincerely impressed.

The music is a little over the top and too sentimental at a lot of parts, but the story is very well written. You just don't realize it at first how brilliant it is.

7/10 because the first part was so confusing and I felt a lot of the music was bad and just distracted from what was happening.
