    Awesome film. It's amazing what they did to defeat the Soviets in Afghanistan. It also includes a great deal of insight of how we lost the hearts and minds over time. Very sobering.

    Great movie with well known actors makes it believable until the final caption in the movie ending that includes the "f" word, which takes this movie down 2 star notches in my review.

    His (Charlie) actions speak louder than Obama's "words" ever can!

    This is one of my favorite Cinderella, Underdog, and Teddy Roosevelt tales. I love it when the masters of the free world, get together in a completely bizarre way to do something righteous and make somethin' happen', cappen' !
