Very well done movie. A pleasure to watch. I would recommend this movie for all to see. No fast forwarding on this one. No falling asleep on this DVD!!!!!

I was really looking forward to watching this film, and I was very disappointed. I appreciated the way the combat scenes were done, as well as the harshness of the veteran's hospital. However, Ron's character was confusing and not relatable.

Poor movie. troubling buildup and when it gets going it is over. I would have rather had less of what it was and more of the story that wasn't told. The voice Ron Kovic became was not represented which would have made this potentially inspiring. Also, the acting was not convincing. Two Thumbs down.
