And most of the supporting cast are great too, notably Colin Friels and Helen Morse. It's a pity that Schepisi and Morris didn't create a more cohesive movie.

Home of the Brave is an overly melodramatic war film that fails to connect with the audience despite its good intentions. The acting in this film is pretty bad, the script is absolutely terrible, and the direction felt too generic. The script, written by Mark Friedman, was very unsubtle, hammering us over the head with the PTSD suffered by the soldiers who returned home from Iraq. Several war films have dealt with these issues far better and in a more subtle manner than Home of the Brave does. Winkler has good intentions with this film, he doesn't try to send a political anti-war message or anything like that but rather focuses on the pain the soldiers have to face when they return home and how difficult adapting can become for them. Those noble intentions, didn't translate well into a film that was full of war cliches and terrible dialogues. It became too melodramatic and the characters were never developed realistically. It just rang false and it should've dealt with such a serious issue in a more complex manner. I couldn't connect with any of the characters in this film and was disappointed with Winkler's direction.The story follows a group of soldiers in the Iraq War who are pleased to receive the news that their tour of duty is coming to an end in two weeks. As they make plans of what they will do when they return home, they are sent on a humanitarian mission to deliver some medical supplies at a nearby village. One of the convoys is driven by Vanessa Price (Jessica Biel), while another one is guarded by Tommy Yates (Brian Presley), his hometown best friend Jordan (Chad Michael Murray), and Jamal (50 Cent). A surgeon named Will Marsh (Samuel Jackson) also accompanies them on the mission. Upon arriving at the village the unit is ambushed and several lives are lost, while others suffer psychological traumas and physical injuries. The lives of these soldiers are changed forever and once they arrive home to their families they must learn how to adjust to their "normal" lives. We see how each one of these characters have difficulty doing so as they continue to be emotionally torn by the war, while some of them continue to cross each other's path back home in Washington.Home of the Brave felt tremendously out dated despite it only being made 7 years ago. It probably has to do with the fact that this film was a bit lazy in the way they tried to tackle the subject matter. It is something we've seen in many other war movies recently that have had a much more subtle approach. This film just felt too repetitive and predictable. The performance from the cast also hurt this film tremendously and not even Samuel L Jackson could do enough to save this. There is a short cameo by Christina Ricci that really felt out of place, like many other moments in this film. The different stories didn't connect very well either and the characters were just presented in a very lazy manner. Home of the Brave has all the war cliches you can think of and doesn't present anything groundbreaking or original.

(nl) wrote: Schindler's List begins with a pair of Sabbath candles being lit. A Jewish prayer is recited in Hebrew. It continues as the candles melt and as they fade and go out, the film turns to black and white. The smoke from the flame turns to the smoke from a train and you see the arrival station at Krakow. Jews would arrive 10,000 a day into Krakow from the country side and forced to live in the city. Oskar Schindler is seen going to the Judenrat which is the Jewish council. He visits and finds Itzhak Stern who has previously been an accountant. He's looking for Stern to assist him run his business. The factory will pay for goods in exchange for Jewish investors since Jew's cannot receive money. The workers are deemed essential and cannot be sent to the death camp being built (Plaszw). Schindler is then at a church to secure a source for goods and materials to provide, he will later order things that the Jew's working for him would want. Before long Jew's are forced from their homes and into a 16-block ghetto. There is a little girl yelling 'goodbye Jews' which is more significant than anyone knows at the time. Schindler and Stern meet and say goods will be the new currency and that Jews are cheaper to employ than Poles. Stern agrees to help Schindler. In a raid of the ghetto, the Jewish are forced onto trains to Plaszw and found in floors, furniture etc and some killed in streets. Schindler see's this and begins to realize what is happening to those being moved. After meeting with Helen and Stern many times he realizes what Goeth is doing and what is happening at the death camps. Schindler has Stern make a list of all the people he intends to buy and presents it to Goeth. They are separated and the women end up at Auschwitz where Schindler must pay for them again. He hides them at factory in his hometown until the war ends. Schindler allows the Rabbi to prepare for the Sabbath at sundown on a Friday, allowing the Jew's to begin returning to their religious beliefs. The Germans find out what Schindler has done for the last seven months and he must flee, but he has saved 1,100 lives. He is presented with a ring made from the Talmud for his saving lives. The movie returns to color and shows footage of holocaust survivors walking free. It goes without saying the holocaust greatly impacted Jewish and non-Jewish. There were those who believe that God was still there through and after the holocaust and that humanity must play itself out and that God cannot change this. Others became non-believing in God, however some say that even this belief shows at the deepest roots, people still believe in God.
