  • Most fascinating is the seemingly unanimous feeling that while deployment in Korengal was hard and heartbreaking, these veterans would do it all again just to stay together, to remain brothers who mutually understand something no on else will ever know.

  • Not quite a coda to Sebastian Junger's and Tim Heatherington's...Restrepo - more of a commentary track, or a series of annotations.

  • In a series of expertly edited interviews conducted with infantrymen on their way home after a year in the Korengal Valley, Junger exposes us to the war's psychological toll.

    June 27, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • "Restrepo" felt like the story of how boys become men. "Korengal" feels like the story of how strangers become family.

    June 26, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Those of us who haven't served on active duty can't know what it's like. Taken together, "Restrepo" and "Korengal" brings us about as close to the experience as we can, or would want, to get.

    June 26, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The film is a tribute to the courage, tenacity and sorrow of the men with their boots on the ground in a place very far away.

    A good follow-up to Restrepo. Worth checking out if you liked the first film.
