    Emotionally manipulative, heavy-handed, pro-American war propaganda that gets by solely on the visceral impact of the war scenes. The attemptEmotionally manipulative, heavy-handed, pro-American war propaganda that gets by solely on the visceral impact of the war scenes. The attempt to shoe-horn in how this is a story about a father and son attempting to 'bond' is an absolute failure; we don't get a genuine focus on these two men when they are shooting footage side-by-side and the son leaves mid-picture. The narrative becomes disjointed, if it already wasn't fairly incoherent. This is not Restrepo, not even Korengal. I feel for our soldiers fighting overseas, but this doc doesn't serve them the way they deserve. Also, the score is so over-the-top, laughably bombastic, almost, that it underplays the real tension that unfolds onscreen. The troops deserve better, and so do audiences for that matter.
