David M. from WALKERTON, IN
Reviewed on 8/3/2012...
OK, so maybe this is not terribly realistic in the portrayal of the people who must perform these difficult tasks in real life. It is still a good movie.

Hopefully many of us will not have to receive a visit from casualty notification so we have no idea of knowing if this is how it really is, or isn't.

Most (military) stuff in movies is total BS anyway. If you have never served you will not know the difference. It is simply entertainment value so it serves the purpose.

It is still a sad and powerful film. True, the two main characters would probably not be chosen for this significant duty in real life but they do perform admirably.

Woody is crazy (as always)and Ben Foster does well as his (wounded) accomplice.

Worth a look.
