Movie Info

When U.S. Marine Gabriel Drummer (Shia LaBeouf) returns home from his tour in Afghanistan, he finds that the place he once called home is no better than the battlefields he fought on overseas. Accompanied by his best friend Devin Roberts (Jai Courtney), a hardnosed Marine whose natural instinct is to shoot first and ask questions later, he searches desperately for the whereabouts of his estranged son, Johnathan (Charlie Shotwell), and wife, Natalie (Kate Mara). In their search, the two intercept Charles (Clifton Collins Jr.), a man carrying vital information about the whereabouts of Gabriel's family. As we revisit the past, we are guided in unraveling the puzzle of Gabriel's experience and what will eventually lead us to finding his family. The psychological suspense thriller MAN DOWN also stars Gary Oldman.

Critic Reviews for Man Down

All Critics (52) | Top Critics (15)

A uniquely unpleasant mash-up of moody post-apocalyptic adventure and moodier wartime melodrama.

December 5, 2016 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…

Man Down carries a poignant message about American veterans' mental health needs, but you may give up on the movie before it gets there.

December 2, 2016 | Full Review…

The final sequence, when all is revealed, is overwrought, excruciatingly shrill, manipulative, and exploitative -- and hardly a surprise to anyone even halfway paying attention.

December 2, 2016 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Man Down is a bad film, but it's made even worse by the taste it will leave in your mouth regarding its silly handling of a very serious issue.

December 2, 2016 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

LaBeouf ... ably carries "Man Down" on his shoulders. He has an easy, natural chemistry with Shotwell, and he's a reservoir of buried emotions in his scenes with Oldman.

December 2, 2016 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Mr. Montiel may have had honorable intentions in creating this movie. But what he made is neither a viable work of art nor an effective call to action. It's a sadistic and ghoulish spectacle.

Audience Reviews for Man Down

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.
