A more capable dramatic actor might have saved the film..
A group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq struggle to integrate back into family and civilian life, while living with the memory of a war that threatens to destroy them long after they've left the battlefield. Except Whiplash i haven't seen Miles Teller in anything else that he even tries and this film is another example since from the first 5 minutes i feared this was going to be bad (that entire scene where he tries to help a fellow soldier to dumb as hell) and the whole film drags from there and it goes on and on and it never stops plus i was disappointed with the rest of the cast as well and the story never gets up from where it is.
