I think it was a little bold in terms of screenwriting (trying to do too much at once), it's still surprisingly sincere and has some great performances. This isn't a great movie or anything like that, but it's pretty effective. Effective also at capturing many frustrations regarding Iraq. I think the movie would have been better if it focused completely on one of the two messages it was conveying: the controversial military policy that no one knows about or the traumatic effect of war on young veterans. The biggest saving grace of this movie is that it's obvious that it DOES NOT have an agenda to make the current government adminstration look bad. Rather, it seems to have been genuinely made to advocate on behalf of the soldiers to dramatize a current injustice.
