Critic Reviews for A Marine Story
An impartial look at U.S. military service that movingly commands respect for the personnel while requiring neither support nor assigning blame for the politics behind unpopular war efforts
Sustained by Weber's strong presence, "A Marine Story" overcomes some flaws in continuity and superficial characterizations to drive home its underlying message about the injustice of "don't ask, don't tell"...
Ms. Weber (Mr. Farr's wife) anchors the movie with a gritty, honest performance that has the same to-the-bone quality as Melissa Leo's in Frozen River.
Relentlessly clumsy and predictable, A Marine Story is set in late 2008, just as a new political breeze is blowing. But its abrupt, wishful postscript is still just a fairy tale.
Audience Reviews for A Marine Story
I must say that I am disappointed. I was bored at times, and the rest of the time just uninterested. I thought that the storyline was crap on top of everything else. I guess this just wasn't my cup of tea...
Seriously, this film is an outstanding representation of the tragic effect hatred towards gays in the military can have.
