Critic Reviews for Fort Bliss

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (4)

  • Fort Bliss is a small film, but it addresses big issues, in ways that are never simplistic or dogmatic.

    October 17, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "Fort Bliss" joins "Coming Home" and "The Best Years of Our Lives" as a movie deeply in sync, not just with the military characters it depicts, but also with the civilian world that awaits them with such confoundingly mixed messages.

    September 25, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • [A] well-observed and endearing account of one woman grappling with allegiances to her fellow soldiers and her estranged 5-year-old son.

    September 22, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Maggie's agonizing zero-sum struggle to balance a life of military service and a steady relationship with her son feels fresh, raw, and real.

    September 22, 2014 | Full Review…
  • [Myers] is good at capturing the revealing, offhand moments in this story, but Maggie's conflicts about motherhood and the military needed a greater psychological scope than this film provides.

    September 19, 2014 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Even when the plotting feels strained or inauthentic, the Asche & Spencer score a mite too insistent, Monaghan's performance rings true.

Audience Reviews for Fort Bliss

    There was no ending....let's face it every story needs an end.

    In "Fort Bliss," Staff Sergeant Maggie Swann(Michelle Monaghan) arrives back in the states, the day after saving a soldier's life from an IED ambush in Afghanistan. But instead of the emotional reunion she was expecting with her five year old son Paul(Oakes Fegley), her ex-husband Richard(Ron Livingston) shows up late without him. At least, he brings the jumper cables that are necessary to start her car. In any case, Paul seems rather attached to Alma(Emmanuelle Chriqui), Richard's younger girlfriend, which is a situation Maggie desperately wants to rectify. While not the definitive statement on life in the military, "Fort Bliss" is still a thoughtful character study that benefits greatly from an excellent and sincere performance from Michelle Monaghan.(On the other hand, Ron Livingston is definitely miscast.) In other words, it is about somebody who has found her role in the army which is not for everyone. At the same time in a movie that is very much concerned with memory, Maggie has to work to insure that her son will never forget her.
