Critic Reviews for Brothers at War
No excerpt available.
Rademacher's vigorous commitment to making the documentary, as well as to his large, close-knit family, deserves respect.
Brothers at War would be interesting enough if it merely observed soldiers in their element as they chill behind friendly lines, but this documentary, which begins at a low key, gradually becomes intense and psychologically complicated.
Insights shared by those left behind sharpen the focus on the sacrifices made by those who go off to war -- a message that might have been clearer were the film not so self-serving.
Just because Rademacher believes his film to be "non-partisan" does not make it so.
Audience Reviews for Brothers at War
An honest documentary about the lives of American soldiers in Iraq, initially conceived by the filmmaker as a way to portray the routine and experiences of his two brothers serving there but then growing into something quite revealing about the relationship between them.
this was great for a army film but it did have Marines also. love the real action it showed. got to see more of whats really going on. i hope there are more to come
one reason i liked this film is it shows what these guys go thru in the war and how they khow that they could die and also shows how hard it can be to leave loved ones behind what it showed to me is being a soldier is a very hard task and you also have to make a commitment to serve for your country
