Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
Wow. This movie is intense, powerful and moving. Is it very well written and extremely well acted. It feels frighteningly authentic, like you’re actually trapped alongside the soldiers on screen. This movie grabs you and doesn’t let go; the tension it evokes is almost tangible. For a war movie (or anti-war movie more accurately) that is based on actual events, Kilo Two Bravo is not exploitative and it does not force a political message on the viewers. Instead, it simply demonstrates how truly horrific war can be while also honoring the bravery and sacrifice of these real life heroes.
Final Grade: A-
Thanks for reading!
