Critic Review - The Scorecard Review

It attempts to conquer social, political and military all in the same film, but it doesn't knock any of them out of the park.

to me, the film attempts to convert convertative thinking americans/viewers to consider the possibility that the iraq war is another viet nam. however, the film falls short and while streep is a powerful actorin most occasions, her character comes across as a weaker and more emotional version of alan combs(the widely popular fox news tv show analyst).

i hollywood is predominatly liberal and this a perfect example of why media and celebrities should keep their snouts out of politics. with the deats of the two former students turned soldiers, the movie envokes emotions to suport the liberal point of view. if the movie had made an even attempt to present both sides of the debate without favoring 1 opinion over another,the movie may have had more success.

the lesson hollywodd to realize is that the public wants to be encouraged to think freely, not to be spoon fed the predetermined aspirations and misguided opinions of the uniformed celebrity cesspool we call hollywood.

hollywood is predominatly liberal and this a perfect example of why media and celebrities should keep their snouts out of politics. with the deaths of the two former students turned soldiers, the movie envokes emotions to suport the liberal point of view. if the movie had made an even attempt to present both sides of the debate without favoring 1 opinion over another,the movie may have had more success.

the lesson hollywodd needs to realize is that the public wants to be encouraged to think freely, not to be spoon fed the predetermined aspirations and misguided opinions of the uniformed celebrity cesspool we call hollywood.
