Salon - Andrew O'Hehir
Home of the Brave isn't exactly a subtle or a delicate picture -- it's an old-fashioned Hollywood movie, at least in tone, that's being released like an indie -- but it has some terrific acting and comes straight from the heart.
The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen
Timeliness is all very well, but the significant subject matter cries out for a defter directorial touch and a deeper complexity in regard to the characters and performances.
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
Evenness of political keel, combined with a generic filmmaking style, is an artistic weapon way too puny for a successful assault on so tough, bruising, and crucial a subject.
ReelViews - James Berardinelli
Had Home of the Brave presented credible stories about believable characters, it might have been a powerful drama.
Christian Science Monitor - Peter Rainer
Home of the Brave is a milestone of sorts. But it's a formulaic, overacted piece of work that rarely delves deep.

Home of the Brave (2006)

The day after they get the word they'll go home in two weeks, a group of soldiers from Spokane are ambushed in an Iraqi city. Back stateside we follow four of them - a surgeon who saw too much, a teacher who's a single mom and who lost a hand in the ambush, an infantry man whose best friend died that day, and a soldier who keeps reliving the moment he killed a civilian woman.
