I want to give this movie a hard time for not being ONE thing - it's not a comedy, it's not a Rom Com and it's not an introspective view on Military Journalism. It's a bit of all those things and does a decent job of it. Not great by any means... A little unfocused on the whole but still an acceptable thing to watch for the solid cast.
If I were a more eloquent individual I could wax on about how powerful and important this movie is. The story of such a huge dissent told while it is happening is a bit unreal. I wish there were some uplifting message at the end about governments reigning it in but I saw none.
Must see for anyone. Period.
Remember when movies used to try to create entire scenes with CG and it looked awful? Like, so bad you wondered how anyone could look at it and come to a positive consensus that their money had been well spent? Insane. We are no longer in that time for sure.
Beautiful looking movie. Other worldly, LITERALLY. I even enjoyed the 3D aspect of it - not something I really ever budge on.
The book is better but that's no surprise.…
