Reviews

Amerikaanse oorlogsfilm uit 2006 van Irwin Winkler (Goodfellas, Raging Bull), met Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Biel e.a. De film vertelt het verhaal van vier Amerikaanse soldaten die na een lang verblijf in Irak op het punt staan terug te keren naar huis. Tijdens hun laatste missie wordt hun eenheid echter in de val gelokt waarna een hevig gevecht ontbrandt. In dit bloedbad vallen tientallen doden en de overlevenden zullen nooit meer hetzelfde zijn. Bij thuiskomst moeten zij proberen hun normale levens weer op te pakken. MacDonald (DVD Verdict,i) geeft 86 (van 100) punten: 'Fans of war pictures like Coming home and The deer hunter - that is, those more concerned with the home front than the battlefield - should be pleased with Home of the brave. It's generally well acted, relatable, and nicely shot; if it weren't for those darn flashbacks, this could have been a great film.' De dvd bevat geen extra's.
