Product Overview

From Academy Award-winner Irwin Winkler comes Home of the Brave, the story of four American soldiers nearing the end of their tours of duty in Iraq. Shortly after learning their unit will soon return home, they are sent on one final humanitarian mission to bring medical supplies to a remote Iraqi village. The unit is ambushed and takes heavy losses. The surviving troops suffer both physical and psychological injuries. Now, as they return to the United States, four soldiers must face memories of the past as they look towards the future and return to civilian life. These are their stories. Home of the Brave is about hope and courage and the impact of war on both the individuals who fight it and the people close to them.

ReviewSource ReelViews
Review Home of the Brave starts out with promise as it shows to good effect the chaos and uncertainty inherent in "battling" in current-day Iraq. Unfortunately, after the action shifts from the deserts of the Middle East to the relative calm of the home front (specifically, Spokane, Washington), it devolves into a morass of melodramatic cliches. Not only is the bulk of Home of the Brave preachy and predictable, but it features some of the worst dialogue to be found in any non-horror film this year...For anyone who has been away from home for a time, especially those whose lives have been spent in a war zone, a return to "normalcy" requires a period of adjustment. It's more difficult for some than others. Had Home of the Brave presented credible stories about believable characters, it might have been a powerful drama...Unfortunately, bad writing and heavy-handed direction have taken this movie in an unenviable direction. The sad thing to behold in Home of the Brave isn't the characters struggling to regain control of their lives, but the actors struggling to gain control of the material.
