Man Down

Critics Consensus

Well-intentioned but overall misjudged, Man Down makes an unfortunately muddled attempt to mine thoughtful drama out of modern warfare's emotional wreckage.

Movie Info

When U.S. Marine Gabriel Drummer (Shia LaBeouf) returns from Afghanistan, he finds the place he once called home is no better than the battlefields he fought on overseas. Accompanied by his best friend, a hard-nosed Marine whose natural instinct is to shoot first and ask questions later, Gabriel searches desperately for his estranged son and his wife, leading to a suspect who has vital information about their location.

  • Once the smoke clears and the shock of its twists wears off, Man Down is even worse than it originally appears.

    March 31, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • An uncomfortable blend of war movie, family drama and dystopian sci-fi.

  • The movie is fragmented enough from the word go, but plummets from such an insane height at the end that you want to rewind and hand everyone involved a personalised black-box recorder.

  • An oppressive cloud of macho self-pity hangs over this muddled and overwrought movie, which involves a cliched narrative device that is glib and unsatisfying.

    March 30, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • This naff war fable with end-of-world curlicues is good only when LaBeouf fills the screen. His anguish, tears and poignant gropings to comprehend are moving and believable.

    March 30, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Dito Montiel's Man Down is a well-meaning but very confused drama exploring post-traumatic stress and the plight of US soldiers "coming home."

    The acting in this is great, but the story is crazy. It is hard to follow and in the end when it makes sense you think why did they do that? I really like Dito I just wish this was a better executed and more thought out story.
