How can a film starring Samuel L. Jackson, Christopher Plummer and Ed Harris be this dull?
January 30, 2021
As well-intentioned as the film's messages of respect for the sacrifices of the fallen are, The Last Full Measure succumbs to melodrama at almost every turn.

A talented cast of famous faces aren't quite enough to pull this war-time tale out of the mud of corny cliche.

Even with the stellar cast, it diminishes the overall impact of this remarkable tale of heroism.
June 3, 2020
Boasting a powerhouse cast, The Last Full Measure has the best of intentions, to celebrate servicemen without condoning war, but winds up with little else.

Here's a true story about a young soldier's exceptional bravery and sacrifice made into a pretty average war movie, insubstantial and TV-ish despite the appearance of some decorated Hollywood veterans.

This movie was made for a specific audience -- vets, current military and their families. Many movies uplifting vets can reach a wide audience, not this one. However, I loved seeing talented actors from the 70's that have been ignored for years.

[T]he movie ultimately bites off more than it can chew, and its excessive use of flashbacks makes for a rather disjointed watch that will truly test your patience.

The Last Full Measure fumbles at telling a remarkably powerful story with its bland screenplay that often feels like style over substance.
January 30, 2020
Preachy script bogs down violent story of courage and valor.
January 28, 2020
Acting grace notes almost rescue a generally graceless and lumbering combat/post-combat drama.
January 27, 2020
A lethargic, preachy, maudlin and clunky mess despite a fine cast.
January 25, 2020
It's very earnest and very safe. Everyone explains everything that they are thinking in the most poignant way every time. It is very predictable and expected.

The weakness of the movie is that it so skims on what actions Pitsenbarger did to set him above other soldiers who voluntarily put their lives at risk.
January 24, 2020
[Airman William] Pitsenbarger's heroics are undoubtedly meaningful, but [writer/director Todd] Robinson's script is strictly by the numbers and, thus, lacks the emotion needed to fully appreciate a cinematic retelling of this patriot's sacrifice.

At this point, having every Vietnamese character be a bloodthirsty butcher with no lines reinforces that this feels more like a 1980s TV movie than a considered tribute to a fallen hero
January 24, 2020
The Last Full Measure shoots itself in the foot. It may deserve a Purple Heart for that, but nothing much more.
January 24, 2020
Forcing emotional responses out of moviegoers instead of letting it arise organically from the material doesn't do the story or the veterans any justice at all.
January 24, 2020
Ultimately, we're just meant to recognize bravery and salute. The movie's not strictly necessary for that.
January 23, 2020
Pitsenbarger's story is one worth telling, but "The Last Full Measure" is a misfire.
