The vets tell the truth, by any reasonable measure, and then the filmmaker stirs the elements as filmmakers always do, whether partisan or neutral.

Inevitably, the film has the air of an extended campaign ad, but that doesn't make its subjects and the stories they tell any less compelling.

Alexander, a political writer and radio host, gets riveting, emotional confessionals from the veterans.

For a feature film, this clearly partisan documentary about the Swift boat crew that served under John Kerry in Vietnam is pretty slight, but for a campaign commercial -- which is what it feels like -- it's pretty long.

Will this film do Kerry any good, or the Swifties any harm? My bet is: Not a bit, one way or the other.

Basically a longer, less slick version of the official Kerry profile unveiled at the Democratic National Convention.

It may be an "all-black" Western, but Brothers in Arms would have been pretty darn laughable with actors of any race, creed, or color.

the talking heads format just doesn't make for compelling film, despite its timeliness

The documentary is well edited, well paced, and feels genuine. It's educational, important and enjoyable independent of the Kerry campaign.

Tellingly, [John] Kerry is a much more compelling speaker during a 1970s protest rally than in the contemporary footage, where he carefully chooses his words.

The movie's main contribution is its fresh look at the Vietnam War, being refought in the Kerry-Bush presidential campaign at the time of the film's release.

Audience Reviews for Brothers in Arms

15/06/2010 (DVD)

The cover looks cool, but the movie?... wasn't that cool, for me anyway.

I won't mention any names this time in case it's someone's favorite actor/actress. There are some terrible actors that in my opinion spoil the movie and I'm glad it was $1 to hire, now I know why it was $1 to hire... for 8 days.

I didn't die so I guess it's not that bad.
