While it doesn’t show us anything new or teach us something we didn’t know before, it is nevertheless an extremely tense, tightly-plotted, well-acted, realistically grimy war movie, one of the better entries in the genre. Brad Pitt acquits himself admirably and shows himself once again to be under appreciated for his talent. My ONLY complaint is this: it incites bloodlust to near propaganda levels. Other than that, it’s excellent and well-worth the ticket price and deserves to be seen in theaters. Three and a half tanks out of five.
