Stop-Loss

The Iraq war hero Sgt Brandon king, giving the debt in full native, returns home in a small Texas town. On the civilian Brandon tries to return to the mainstream of the life that he lived before the war, but he did not give such an opportunity: uncle Sam once again call upon the hero under his banner — in the same Iraq. Only this time Brandon is clearly not eager to take up arms. Another cool twist of fate will be for the king's faith in family bonds, the strength of friendship, strength, love, honor and dignity — finally, the fact that people in charge of his country, do what you should do...

Why the coercion? Because... well, I can not "pass" movie with Gordon-Levitt, even if he is not the main role.

Just say, I hate can movies about the war in Iraq or Vietnam. Well, not my it. If not Gordon-Levitt, again, I would go to sleep. Here in the main role of Ryan Philip. On my totally subjective opinion, an actor he is not the good. But for the stories told in the picture, very talented games and not required. The story is, the guy gave, according to him, the whole country (USA — I will specify on just in case) decides to return to normal civilian life. But the Motherland completely opposite plans. And she (the homeland) in the person of the President of America decides that the guy needs to go back to this very war. The plot of the film revolves around this confrontation of man — state. Here here remember the words that anyone — it's just a cog in a huge machine of the STATE. And as we all remember from history, a cog that is not want to spin along with all, you need to replace, well, or destroy.

Fans of Joseph Gordon-Levitt talking at once, it here is not many this role not the best in his film career. Although he is convincing enough.

Once again convinced that movies the American war — not mine. Sorry if offended anyone.

Just what I watched the movie and I don't want to talk about the acting, directing and scripts, let this others say.

I want to say that the only thought that do not leave me with the beginning of the film and until the last minute. The fact that my opinion is reflects the picture of the war.

It does not matter on which side you serve the only important thing: having been there once you have not return, who will return the other with same voice, body, eyes, but what is your very nature itself will change you forever in the worst or for the better, but will change. Not matter how, important is the fact that. And this is not run for as it is you, it a part of you, and where you leave itself?..

Any war — it is a tragedy for each sides shame the entire international community. The war in Iraq — this event, located outside outside of my understanding. In my head understand how in today's world could happen that our most democratic state under false pretenses, without the consent of the UN invaded the territory of a sovereign state.

And thousands of boys with minds clouded with Patriotic slogans, belief in that they contribute to the destruction of weapons of mass destruction and combat terrorism, frightened by the events of 11 September 2001, volunteers went in the army.

The film is very well possible to see this disharmony: here we see the regular guys, friends, having fun fooling around, and a few minutes later they are forced to kill and to close the chest of his comrades.

And then these guys back home. And can not answer the question that they did this war. But they know that war — it sucks that they have been cheated that they were used. And they have nightmares, and they can find a use in real life, they go of the mind, suffering and torment of their loved ones...

And then uncle Sam speaks, they say, Hey, man, you haven't all gave their country. And then they understand and what the hell?

What to do guys related to law and with imaginary patriotism? What path they choose: back to the senseless slaughter of the war, or running voluntarily that light?

War is not let them go, it becomes a part of these boys with crippled souls.
