American Son: One of the Best Films I Have Ever SeenReviewed bybobbylabonte18Vote: 10/10

From the first credits to the final scene of American Son is a complete masterpiece. Neil Abramson co-wrote and directed this story of a 19 year old Marine named Mike, who on a four day Thanksgiving leave, must let his family and friends in Bakersfield know that after that leave, he will be deployed to Iraq and on his way home from training camp, meets a young woman he ultimately falls in love with and ultimately must decide between his home life and his soldier side. Nick Cannon gives what I think would be the performance of a lifetime as this young soldier, he must tell his mother, his step father, played brilliantly by Tom Sizemore, his long time best friend, and his newly found love. THis film is one of the best depictions of a soldier going off into combat and the inner turmoil he faces with his choice to leave what he considers home. This film is understated and I believe deserves to be seen by everyone at least once in their lifetime.

You're a young black marine. You have 96 hours leave before being posted to Iraq for more than a year. How do you break the news to your family? What will you get up to in the last period of civilian life you'll have for a while? And will you trying calling that cute girl you met on the way back home? Decisions, decisions...

American Son is what I would refer to as a tepid drama. Everyone involved gives their all, and it all feels pretty realistic. It's just all a little too by-the-numbers for my liking, from the booze-filled parties he attends filled with clothes-shedding nymphets (don't these girls have any self respect) to the decision to inform all and sundry he's off just a few hours before departure. Cue the waterworks, before a quick acceptance. And if you think he's going to spend a bonk-filled final rendezvous with this young lady in a hotel he's known for all of three days... BANG! You win the internet!!

One last question: Our lead seems like a really nice guy... so why are all his friends complete jerks? If I was him, I would dump the lot.... and start afresh. Well, that's what we do with bad Scrabble letters, anyway.... 5/10

Ambitious and excellentReviewed byambercedermanVote: 10/10

American Son is an extraordinary work of art. It tells the story of a young man named Mike (played by Nick Cannon.) Mike has joined the marines. He is fresh out of boot camp and is going to be deployed to Iraq in 96 hours. He gets to spend 96 hours with his family and friends, but nobody knows that he's shipping out to Iraq and he's afraid of telling them. This is a thought provoking, sad, emotional, fascinating movie. There are many other adjectives that I could add, but you get what I'm saying. The story is great. The pacing is great. the performances are all around fantastic. The characters are well rounded and likable. What's not to love?
