Directed by : Mel Gibson

While sitting at a well known theatre, for some random movie, this trailer popped up. I was like I need to watch this movie by all means. The trailer sparked some curiosity and the thought that someone was willing to fight a war as big as WWII "unarmed !!" baffled me. To top it all up it is very much based on a true story. Then of course my memory got a little jittery about the title. After watching this movie make it to almost every top must watch lists I linked it at all up and the urge to watch this masterpiece grew bigger. So there I was, tickets all booked and geared to experience war like none other. There were some fears such as "what if it is just another - FURY" - a magnum opus in its own right. But trust me this movie is way beyond expectations. It talks about the struggles of war, a family with unsettling kids rooted in the 7th Day Adventist Church beliefs. Much to the father's dismay the kids, all grown up now, get themselves enlisted in the army. Each of the two with different perceptions of war. One believes that wars . . .
