Best war movie ive seen since hurt locker but 10 times better. Wish i had seen it in cinemas when it came out. 100 out of 100.
Underrated; excellently acted by the entire cast; powerful story. (by snitz43)
I am a Vietnam Vet who served in an air rescue and recovery squadron in 1969-70. Most war films pathetically fail for me because they're attempting to convey some message or other about wars, but this is one of those which offers the viewer a genuine insight into the ways that soldiers and their families deal with what they've all done or not done as well as what has been done to them.Not only does this fine cast make the most of the script which is based upon a novel, but its cinematography is strongly evocative. Someone here has unfairly characterised the two mothers as being <more>
"hotties". I defy any objective person to explain how the appearance or behaviour of Toni Collette is remotely like a "hottie". Aniston was an executive producer who does wear an attractive dress at a party early in the film, but this sets up a stark contrast with her scenes in the second half talking with Collette and later with Alden Ehrenreich.Based on its low IMDB rating, I had only rented it. However, I will now purchase and add this to my collection of worthwhile war films such as Clint Eastwood's 'Flags of Our Fathers/Letters from Iwo Jima' and Oliver Stone's 'Platoon'.For those who are disquieted by my praise of 'The Yellow Birds', I'd hope you please keep in mind this is merely one very old veteran's viewpoint based upon the ever-vivid memories of my tour of duty. Whether those memories have become distorted over 5 decades, I simply have no idea.
It's a very sad story and not easy to watch. It aches the heart and make you rethink about how wars affect everyone in reality while most of the people just watch it on TV. It's a sad story , despite it may have some flaws , but if you look at the big picture, it's worth watching .
A Very Unique War Story (by itsbobr)
Two young soldiers Brandon Bartle Alden Ehrenreich and Daniel Murphy Tye Sheridan become friends in Army Basic Training and end up gong to Iraq together. Brandon had made a promise to Mrs. Murphy Jennifer Aniston to keep an eye on Daniel and if anything happens to Daniel she asks to hear it from Brandon first. He agrees. Brandon comes back from the war, but not Daniel. Something happened. All we know is that Murphy couldn't be found. Brandon doesn't say anything and avoids talking to the Army CID Criminal Investigation Division This is a very unique war story, but isn't <more>
touted as a true story, but maybe something like this did happen. The story unfolds with flashbacks to Basic Training, combat in Iraq, and Brandon after his return from Iraq.The production is first rate and the acting all around is spot on. We see Brandon after his time in Iraq being moody, anti social and abusive towards his mother Amy Toni Collette .Finally, Mrs. Murphy asks to see Brandon now in the Army Stockade and she is told what happened to Murphy.Notables: Jack Houston as Sgt Sterling who takes Brandon and Daniel under his wing and also knows what happened to Murphy; Jason Patric as CID Captain Anderson.The best scenes in here were when a shy Daniel is asked to dance by a nurse, who he had been looking at. I cannot tell who the girl was, but am guessing that she is Olivia Crocicchia as Tess. And they were absolutely the best scenes in here. Kudos.Nice to see that Jennifer Aniston is going the route of serious movies. She is also one of the Producers of this film.This just isn't a war movie as it's kind of more than that: a very unique war story.Oh, I have no idea that the title means. Ha! 9/10 Violence: Yes. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Humor: No. Language: Yes. Rating; A
From Novel to Film, Hit's all the Right Spots (by torstensonjohn)
This is a strong and compelling adaptation of Kevin Power novel involving the Iraq War. It has driven and poetic moments, and versatile and strong acting, but does have the almost jumpy feel to it as we go back and forth from real time to different engagements in the film. . The strength of Director Alexandre Moore elicits centered performances from his cast, including strong support by Aniston as a desperate mother, Collette as an exasperated one, and Huston as a veteran leader who defies the easy dramatic classifications of "good" and "bad." The strength and passion of <more>
the film lies with the two leads who are outstanding. Sheridan Mud, Joe, Ready Player One is a soulful actor who deftly conveys Murph's naïveté and eventual break and crisis. He's instantly sympathetic. Ehrenreich, who has swung hard from impressive work Hail, Caesar to less so Solo: A Star Wars Story is focused and settled as the damaged young man at the story's center. His Bartle is a true everyman -- without direction, not a star soldier, not a failure. The difference in him before and after he reaches his personal breaking point is clear; the sometimes-poetic narration seems to come from somewhere that didn't exist until it was unearthed by his experiences.The levity of the film comes from the emotional and compelling performances. War pictures come across many ways and mostly with action and eye popping cinematography. This film comes at you in a completely different way and tells the story of what men and women see, feel and think in times of battle. Many are fearful, scared and become soulless to the graphic scenes they see. I like the film and feel it deserves many accolades. A superb story and perfectly captures the feel of war. A solid 8 out of 10
Okay so there are military technical errors throughout the movie, just deal with it. The story itself is a nice change from your usual take on this war it attempts to show the human side of things and for my money succeeds. I enjoyed the movie for what it is.
The Fog of War (by lavatch)
In the bonus segment of the DVD of "The Yellow Birds," the film artists described how they approached the tragedy of war. There was no overt political discussion of the futility of America's wars in the Middle East for the past fifteen years. But that message nonetheless comes across in the depiction of a war where there are no heroes and the reality on the ground is nothing like the young soldiers had imagined when they signed on to serve their nation. In an early moment of the film, one of the soldiers recalls of the war that they "didn't tell us what is was that <more>
brought us there or what it the war wanted" of them.The film is based on Kevin Powers' novel which drew upon his personal experiences in combat in the Middle East. In the DVD bonus segment, Powers observed that the three central characters of Sterling, Bartle, and Murphy, who get lost in the fog of war, were different facets of himself. The two characters of the mothers are crucial for the emotional undercurrents of the film. In the DVD bonus clip, Powers observed that the decisions of the policy makers in Washington, D.C. have unexpected consequences for ordinary Americans like the two caring mothers in the film.The film builds dramatic tension in the story of what happened to young Murphy. The film offers a thoughtful window in the confusion that takes place in trying to understanding decisions made on the ground that leave no trace other than the memories of the participants. The film is successful in demonstrating how some horrific incidents may be "fixed" in order to distort the truth and how the veterans do not return whole from their traumatic war experiences.This film was well-acted and well-photographed with graphic realism in the realities of the moment-to-moment experience of war and the life-damaging effects on human lives. It was especially poignant that there was a festive send-off for the young soldiers, but no fanfare whatsoever in their return, other than the memories that will haunt the survivors forever.
