Rarely write reviews, but this movie made me to do. Especially with the nonsense that I read the reviews earlier.

William HART Pitsenbarger (8 July 1944 — April 11, 1966) was a rescuer of the air force the USA, who participated in almost 300 rescue operations in time of war in Vietnam, to help downed soldiers and pilots.

11 April 1966 and he was killed protecting a group of soldiers captured in the attack of the enemy in time of war in Vietnam. Before he died, he helped save more than 60 people in combat. Was posthumously awarded the air force Cross, which was subsequently upgraded to the medal of honor.

The story told by Todd Robinson, is simple and nothing original in it. But she is shrill and can not leave indifferent, especially those with whom the family are or were veterans.

It is well that in film involved many famous and honored actors, because it attracts more attention to the movie, history of the heroism of the common man. And the main role is played by a brilliant actor Sebastian Stan.

Frankly, half the movie I struggled to hold back the tears. It is not ashamed to cry imagining (which is not go comparison that had to go through those who were there in Vietnam\nama) what was the soldiers.

And let's be honest — many of us have done same move will?

But it is impossible to forget because we live in a time when wars are everywhere and can begin at any time.

Reminder war of those who went through it never be superfluous. No matter of which country is involved. We must not forget about heroism. Never underestimate the how important is recognition of the fact that made such as will for their families.

Of the disadvantages personally for myself to note what I don't had more screen time.

Extremely disappointed in the Russian film does not come out.

Before us is a film which is considered pretty serious and unfortunately current at this time the theme — the theme of war. Todd Robinson gathered under the wing is a really good cast, yeah and the camera work is pleasing to the eye, but

It seems to be all of this film indicates that this is clearly a premium project that potentially needs to be a good product, but he manages to stumble on level ground.

The actors here are simply nothing to play, and they pull 1:50 that can be had quite quickly and vastly to beat 1:20/30. Almost two hours, the script is on the location and not makes a nice, even and well-played love story Hoffman with his wife in the execution of Stan and Sudol or bright stage with PTSD in the performance of Samuel L. Jackson nor the rest of the castes. We want to tell the story of the heroism, valor and honor, but is not developing, insert a completely pointless flashback scenes, which any role does not play. Yes, they played perfectly, the setting is beautiful, but they — fact, anything for a bear; nor bright dialogue, no message storylines and is shown as — it is impersonal and too restricted.

In the end, we got a bunch of talented actors who had nothing to play, good camera work, but not the film, which was tell details to beat the topic that is stated.

"... Makers of men, creators of leaders. You consider what kind of leaders you here grow.

I don't know whether did Charlie was silent today... or no; I'm not a juror. But that I say he will not betray anybody for their own benefit!

That's what I call honesty. Here I called courage. It is the main qualities of a leader.

I went to the crossroads in my life. I was choose the right path.

But never done. Do you know why?

It was too damn hard.

Charlie came to the intersection. And chosen path. The right way. The path of the principle, showing the character.

Let him to continue on that path.

Lord, the kid has a future in your hands. A valuable future, believe me. Not or abuse, protect it. Hold on him. And soon you will be proud.

I promise."

Scent of a woman, 1992, dir. M. Brest

The final (burning, fiery) speech of the Colonel in the resignation of Frank Slade (al Pacino) to protect young men from a masterpiece of the film "Scent of a woman" emerged from the subconscious parallel with what is happening here and now.

Cowardice, cowardice, comfort zone, the silence. Who met with this? Those who would-be friends are not familiar? Shyness and fear penetrate in every cell of your body. At the first sign of danger. Cowering inside of you the essence of the animal, trying to master the conscience, mind, reason. And expands to cancer.

Low-lying, pushing the path of cowardice in the provocation, quietly, mites have throat. How are you there? Scared? Tucked tail? Or may be bristled, ready to fight? And why? And is it worth it? And is not it easier to retreat without a fight? Unless "self" is not closer to the body? So what you, "Goosey" protrude? Why "jump out of pants"? Calm down. Do not fuss unnecessarily... And looks-looks-looks into your reactions. And eyeing-eyeing-eyeing you. Will mind? Whether to argue?

The movie involving two or more temporal layers. Year;1966. The fighting in Vietnam. Death and blood the tearing of flesh. And the year is 2019. Peaceful sky over United States. Gloss individuals and gloss suits. But the essence is the same. Choice. The human choice. To be individual or to be crushed, devoured by his own Minotaur. Easy? Is it easy? Oh, I...

There, in the far distance under the whistling of bullets, it was necessary to choose the right path. And pay with your life. Here with understanding of their own right to remain silent, a career in the mountain must. There a fight, then the fight. Always fight. So how? According to the conscience? Or according to circumstances? The choice on the crossroads of destiny right whether, if left with an enviable constancy.

Similar "configuration" spectator watched recently. Keira Knightley "Dangerous secrets" was opened in 2019. Themselves and we checked on the status of a CITIZEN. And there here and then now we have civil servants, able to act to change the obvious. Pawn if you? Or figure? A fighter or laggard? Tell yourself no deception.

The cast is all solid veterans "yesterday's highlights". Memories of youth, memories of the war live, these guys. At this ed Harris awakens his presence Vietnam syndrome "Stiletto"(1988). And John savage "the Hunter on deer"(1978) "resurrected".

Legal motives evoke memories of the callousness of a young lawyer (Tom cruise) of the feed "a Few good men"(1992). Echoes "lawyers" and Ryan Gosling from the picture "Fracture"(2007). gain experience in  the"art of argument", feeling the fullness of being on a cliché techniques, you lose the zeal of ambitious inspiration. To Wake yourself up, then find the meaning of existence.

The continuity of American cinema, is obvious. The repetition of the plot for the viewers, catches the eye. Here even the same "Scent of a woman" the final rousing chords of the March sounds. Yay! As said.

Unfortunately, novelty is missing. Is no novelty. This impoverishes. Stamp front of us (albeit not trite, not hackneyed plot — physician war duty the service of Hippocrates)... of the Senses, the film does not stir. Don't filed interest what is happening. Not quite high. But could be "our nightmares" of 1941-1945 on the order of another superior to these? And the reason this? We just as a nation, much more "richer" are much more mudrenee war, and grandparents, veterans.

For youth like it is impossible by the way will be the battle scenes. But here play a secondary role. They are not true. So, not much make no mistake. Here otherwise sets the tone.

So can you're done?
