Stop-Loss

The bravest place to stand is by each other's side.


Stop-Loss
After a tour of duty in Iraq, a group of soldiers come home to their small town and a heroes welcome. One decides to re-enlist and become a sniper, while the other has his retirement denied: he has been 'stop-lossed' and ordered back to Iraq. He decides to fight this decision, and goes on the run with his buddy the wanna-be sniper's girlfriend. After a few detours, they end up in Washington before the showdown in a cemetery.

Laura Bushell quote iconAn emotionally intense film which conveys the human toll of this war on terror.

eye Weekly
Adam Nayman quote iconIt respects the sacrifices of the battlefield and differentiates between criticizing the war and those who fight it.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconIt is likely destined for the scrap pile of Iraq war movies whose well intentioned homilies have been betrayed by their dramatic inertness.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconHere's the first major movie of the new year that touches greatness, and damn if there isn't a curse hanging over it.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconAs it stands for yours truly, however, it's all competently done (despite wading into some melodrama in the second half), but the lack of personal resonance left me rather blasé about it when I know I should have felt differently.
