Critic Reviews for Last Flag Flying
While conventional in execution and its underlying anti-war/pro-soldier sentiments, "Flag" nevertheless is buttressed by a warm humanity and stirring performances from Bryan Cranston, Laurence Fishburne and, especially, Steve Carell.
Last Flag Flying lacks the casual, lived-in realism you usually find in a Linklater film. You don't buy the men as long-separated pals, and so you don't really buy the premise the connection that caused Doc to seek out these men is not visible on screen.
It's not splashy, but it's more than enough. It's melancholy about what war does to men, but never feels the need to cue sad, sentimental music.
With its well-drawn characters (a Linklater trademark) and mood of quiet restraint, "Last Flag Flying" touches the heart at a deep level.
The film winds up like both its subjects and the military they served in: sincere in its objectives, compromised in its execution.
