Although this movie has great household names like Mel Gibson and Heath Ledger it is one you could afford to miss. We have seen this same plot many times in countless war movies about every country not just America. It is obvious that Mel was cast for this great role due to his exceptional performance in Braveheart, but unfortunately, there is nothing exceptional about his character in this role. The only surprising thing to me about this movie is the rating. I realize it is somewhat violent movie due to the war scences, but besides that it seems like a family film. There is no sexual tendencies or nuditly. I think it could of been rated PG-13.

This was a moving experience to watch the story unfold. I love the sets and time period and all the actors/actresses magnificently executed their parts right down to the adorable little girl. Mel Gibson is a "must see" in any movie and presents very convincing and emotionally compelling characters. This is truly a "must see" movie. I already own it on DVD.

Im a history buff so of course I loved the movie. Other than Signs and the classic Lethal Weapon series, Mel Gibson's best.
