Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Made up of four or five story ideas all crammed together, the film maintains a stop-start momentum at best that keeps it from ever hitting a solid stride."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Boseman and Kittles somehow push past the blather to reveal the inconsolable grief and fury that so often haunts our vets."
‑ Chuck Wilson, Village Voice
"An unconvincing, sometimes unfathomable tale about a brooding veteran (Chadwick Boseman) who was involved in a vaguely defined atrocity while fighting overseas."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"...the serious subject of post-war trauma among Iraq veterans [folded] into a revenge and redemption scenario...sometimes interesting but all too often cartoonish."
‑ Jamie S. Rich, Oregonian
"A middling drama that tries to combine elements of Rambo with serious treatment of soldiers' post-traumatic stress disorder and vague political commentary."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"A well meaning look at post-traumatic stress disorder and ex-military account-settling, this spare yet affected would-be thriller never ripens past the point of a wobbly character study."
‑ Brent Simon, Shockya.com
