'The Last Full Measure' is a great and yet tragic story of a man who saved sixty lives in Vietnam. As a former military veteran, I can't help but feel a connection to this great film.

The Last Full Measure takes war films to a whole new level. Filled with heart and a close up look at the horrors on and off the field, it's a must see.

One of the strengths of Todd Robinson's film lies in the casting of a gallery of fine actors in almost every role.

The award ceremony, when group after group of servicemen, family members, and various and assorted people touched by this courageous airman's valorous deed are asked to stand-and one can see how vast the repercussions of good deeds are-it's truly moving.

Not bad for a regulation military movie, but I must confess to a wandering attention span; how else could I notice the cigarette that Jackson removes from the pack of Marlboros is an American Spirit?

If you're going to put Samuel L. Jackson, Ed Harris, William Hurt, Christopher Plummer and Peter Fonda in one movie together, you're really going to have to mess up to get me to not recommend it.

What a specific character has done to the former battlefield, is a thing of beauty. It's the contemplative moment that transcends The Last Full Measure beyond its mushy feel-good tone into a genuinely thoughtful piece of work
January 24, 2020
A moving and powerful and unforgettable story about the Vietnam War and its aftershocks, in the tradition of "The Deer Hunter" and "Coming Home."

It's a pleasure to watch these performers, even when sometimes stilted dialogue and occasional awkward pacing make the film feel pedestrian and awkward.

Writer/director Todd Robinson spins this tale of heroism with a lot of purple sentiment but surprisingly little of the jingoism expected from a film like this.

Robinson has quite a cast of acting pros and legends to support dramatic integrity, which is most successful when handling gut-rot pain, stumbling some when it slips into tearjerker mode.

A workmanlike but ultimately effective film.

All all star cast excels in this inspiring true story about forgotten heroism and doing the right thing to rectify wrongs.
