What to know

critics consensus

The ensemble cast works hard, but hammy direction and a script lacking in nuance ruins this movie's noble intentions. Read critic reviews

    I felt this movie could have had something...more. I think it is a good story to tell but I just couldn't connect to it. The performances were lacking.

    This is not a war movie... it's a movie about war. Home of the Brave has been the best movie to date on the psychological effects our soldiers endure when they return home from Iraq. It's riveting to see the demons they face. Truly inspirational... And don't worry about propaganda because it's neither Pro nor Anti War, the film does a great job of remaining completely neutral. This film boasts an A list cast with Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Biel, Christina Ricci, Chad Michael Murray, Brian Presley, and 50 Cent, who was surprisingly impressive in this action drama. Don't be fooled, if you're looking for a movie chalk full of dead bodies, blood, and missing limbs, then this is not for you. The first 20 minutes is intense however (think Black Hawk Down), but the remainder of the movie is deep and touching.

    Okay plain and simple, this movie is definitely similar to the film "Raising Flagg." Average, boring, random plot line, yet it contained some strong cast members who pretty much saved this film from being a disaster. So why is this movie such a disaster, you may ask? Plain and simple. It's a boring script which was probably written without any heart, considering how hollow the lines seemed to be. Nothing seemed to work with the scenes no matter who was in it. However some of the cast saved it from totally failing itself. If there were only minor actors who have had no previous experience it would have been pathetic. <b>2.5/5</b>
