Quick Movie Review – Restrepo

Restrepo

“This is the deadliest place on Earth, the Korangal Valley.”

Beautifully shot and often harrowing look at the lives of soldiers in the worst parts of the Afghan War totally lacking in direct commentary.  After 10 years, it’s tough to say that anything in the movie comes as a shock to anyone who paid any kind of attention, but it’s good to see it humanized and not glamorized or punched up for the sake of a message.

7/10
