Garrett is an extreme, unsentimental sergeant and Steve Martin is the skeptical one, who is quick to accompany his military guests. Tim has a decent cameo who tries making humiliating a casual conversation with the troops. Alwyn puts forth a valiant effort as Billy; however Kristen Stewart’s also plays an interesting role. After a couple of account bluffs, traditionalist film plays it wistful and safe – it verges on recommending that the best thing for troopers with PTSD is simply to get right back enthusiastically.
