I wrote this review awhile back, closer to when I had watched it first I think. I changed a little of the original review, though not too much. I do my reviews a little differently now, so I added my specification questions at the bottom.
I thought this was an excellent movie!
I saw the trailer while watching Beyond the Mask, and even then thought it looked good. My brother Michael and I were so excited to find out that my mom was going to review it. This is a great movie about faith and family. It is about two men in the Vietnam war and their experience, and then about their sons finding out about them and their lives when going to see the Vietnam Wall in D.C.
I think you all should watch this great movie. It had a very good introduction. This movie gave some great insight to our war with Vietnam, and inspired me even more to thank the veterans I saw.
I would not recommend it for anyone under 11 or 12, but I guess I can be picky with age, because that's how I was raised, and I guess still am.
When I watched it I knew immediately this was a movie I would be watching over and over again.
This movie is very well made and you can tell that Pure Flix is getting the hang of the cinematography. I really think this is an excellent movie. The actors were perfect for the parts also. To be honest, at the beginning I was sort of doubting David A.R. White as being the right person for the character Wayne, but as the movie went on, I thought he was the perfect actor for the part. The other character is played by Kevin Downes, who is getting better and better at acting also. If you are wondering, I have watched movies with both of these actors and enjoy seeing what they star in next. When you watch this movie you should come and comment below! I know I would love to know what you thought.
Over all I really enjoyed this movie and I think you will too.

My rating: I guess it was appropriately rated, though it is PG-13 throughout the whole movie, just mainly the parts set in Vietnam.
Starring: Kevin Downes, David A.R. White, Stephen Baldwin, Candace Cameron Bure, Rebecca St. James, Sean McGowen, Scott Whyte, Ryan Doom, and Si Robertson.
Actors for the parts: Very good. I give this 4 1/2 stars. The characters were well balanced.
Would I watch it again? Yes!
More than once? Yes.
Story plot: VERY WELL DONE. Unique, and not like every other movie. I liked it, and thought it was a very good movie.
Story speed: Good.
Over all thoughts: Great movie, you should watch it!
This movie was amazing, and you would not be wasting your time if you watched it. I don't know much about the Vietnam war, but this showed a little insight on it for me.
Balance: This was a humorous movie, as well as an emotional movie, but something Pure Flix did a great job balancing. Also, they did a very good job on balancing the characters, and how they play off each other. Also, the scenes were well balanced on how they switched back and forth.
This is one of my favorite historical fiction movies!
Over all rating: 5 Stars!
