loved this movie. The characters are memorable and the acting is great, especially from Jim Carrey. One thing that might scare people is the runtime, clocking in at two and a half hours, but if you do watch it, I guarantee you'll love every minute of it.

The highest streaming quality for the movie was 380p and my tv is a 1080p flatscreen so it basicly looked like crap. Thanks google play for screwing me out of two bucks and ruining a great movie.

From the beginning I let the plot sink in, but after the climax, I was overcome by the love and characters in this movie. One major point, American Service Members selflessly sacrifice their lives, past and present.
