Nearing the end of their tour of Iraq, four American soldiers are sent on one last humanitarian mission that sees them ambushed, taking heavy losses, with the troops suffering physical and psychological injuries. Samuel L. Jackson stars as Will Marsh, a doctor tormented by the lives he could not save, returning home to a son who now hates him for going and a wife who is struggling to understand him. Living in the same town, driver Vanessa Price (Jessica Biel) has lost her right hand in the ambush and now finds herself having to face the emotional and physical readjustment that her wounds carry. Army specialist Curtis (50 Cent) Jackson is haunted by the killing of an Iraqi woman and unable to cope with the rage inside when he returns home to his friends. Finally, Brian Presley is the combat soldier whose best friend dies in his arms, and who ultimately feels compelled to go back to war and support his comrades in their fight. For all, coming home is the real battle.

If you are going to watch this film thinking it's going to a action packed war movie, then I'm sorry to say you will be very,very disappointed!
But on the other hand, if you want to see a thought provoking film about the lasting effects of combat on the modern day soldier, that has superb acting, then you will get the most out of the melodrama.
The film really does hammer home the disturbing affects war can have on a person. Samuel L.Jackson is as excellent as ever, but the real suprise comes from Jessica Biel, proving she is not just a pretty face and is a really good actress. Even 50 Cent is good. The only thing that lets the film down is it's very sombre tone, although I guess you could not have a film about such a seriouse subject matter like this and it turn out to be a barrel of laughs. But the film at times is plodding and gets nowhere fast, it feels almost like a TV movie movie in parts.
But the film does give a even handed point of view on such a hot potato subject.
This is a very worthy and thought provoking movie, but don't let the packaging on the DVD case miss-lead you, This is a drama and not, I repeat not a blood and thunder war movie.
The film does prove that the scars of war never can heal!

This is a really powerful film centering around the aftermath of being a soldier in iraq and how they reintegrate into society after their ordeal. A really moving and well presented film i thought - makes you really appreciate what these men do for us. Hard turths here but that's what makes it so gripping. Samuel L Jackson, is as always, in my opinion, outstanding.

 Fantastic
