Hall takes a similarly lackadaisical approach to the facts in Thank You for Your Service, inventing characters and scenes as he tries to create a story arc moviegoers will recognize.

These anguished performances go a long way, as does the film's peripheral vision of a banal, depressed America that threatens to forget its warriors.

The sober, nuanced, and deeply affecting Thank You For Your Service covers old ground with a fresh take and finds something new to say about it at the same time.

Thank You offers a window into lives that most Americans never see, providing an almost visceral sense for what it was like to fight in Iraq and then come home to your afterwar.

Despite passionate performances from a Miles Teller-led cast, this well-intentioned drama about Iraq War vets who go begging for treatment for PTSD is crucially lacking in the outrage that should be its core value.

A well-intentioned, but merely decent movie.
October 27, 2017
There's something meek at Thank You for Your Service's core.
October 27, 2017
"Thank You for Your Service" tells an important story but is pedestrian in its telling. Vets deserve a better thank you.

Keep moving, folks; there's nothing here you haven't seen done better a hundred times before.

Hall's direction and script are efficient and to the point. The actors all acquit themselves well, but always with a grim sense of reality that the film seeks to really drive home.

[Miles] Teller, always so watchable, gives a thoughtful, solid performance as Adam...

Despite its storytelling inconsistencies, the film reveals a harrowing veteran experience when it focuses simply on the men themselves.

"Thank You For Your Service" is more effective, more disturbing than you may expect, and that is very much a good thing.
October 26, 2017
Thank You For Service is ... successful at capturing the Iraq War's effects on American lives.
October 26, 2017
A quiet, intimate drama that's less concerned with violent outbursts and emotional catharsis than with private thoughts and humbling moments.
October 26, 2017
"Service" is flawed only because the demands of narrative cinema require an ending, while recovery, at least in the real world, is a lifelong process.
October 26, 2017
Hall ... delivers an understated drama that makes its points without preachiness. If the film doesn't quite achieve greatness, it's nonetheless heartfelt.
October 26, 2017
This is a powerful and valuable addition to the coming-home war movie canon.
October 26, 2017
Thank You for Your Service is straightforward drama and leaves an uneasy impression about how much more the recipients of that platitude are owed than what the government is giving them.

It's a good, quiet performance by [Miles] Teller, and also by [Haley] Bennett - her Saskia is welcoming but wary.
