I viewed this movie at the suggestion of a family member who had served in Afghanistan. I'm glad I did -- it is a wonderful movie of the struggles of the modern, professional soldier. There were no "impossible" scenes of war or family life. Nothing was fantastic or even out of the ordinary. This could have all played out in your home town. This is the story of three fellow soldiers, comrades-in-arms, after their return to civilian life. The acting was realistic. The women who played the wives were totally believable. Well, so were the guys. The scenes not preposterous ? no crashing police cars, no hail of bullets from which the lead emerges unscathed. The audio was EXCELLENT (which is not true for any number of modern movies); The ordeals and anxieties of these vets kept the story line well within reason but perhaps a bit compressed. The Veterans Administration was painted in a horrid light ? to be fair, the counselors were seen as helpful but the staff as uncaring. I want to believe the point was made that the problems with the VA are systemic and from lack of funding ? hence the movie's title. The officer corps was condemned several times by buffoonery and indifference, not an uncommon theme in any movie dealing with the military. I believe it would have played better with more balance, one caring officer, for example. While heavy on coarse language, cursing, and graphic sexual profanity, it wasn't "over the top" for soldiers' "manguage." The very few sexual scenes were largely off camera. The "R" rating must come from the expletives and subject matter. I saw "Coming Home" soon after returning from Vietnam. That was an anti-war movie. This is not anti-war, but it is a political movie. This is a film about those veterans who are not supported by the psychological services of the VA. It impels the viewer to contact his elected officials to implore them to solve the problem.

A portrayal of the effects of war on today's soldiers.Reviewed byJohnTwist-1Vote: 9/10
Many of the negative reviews for this film were clearly written by people who expected a war movie, which this most certainly is not. What it is, however, is a mostly unfiltered peek into the emotional battle returning combat veterans continue to wage for years or even decades following their tours. Having served 3 tours of combat, I feel I can at least bring some relative perspective to the film. From a technical perspective some of the dialogue was contrived, some lines forced and awkward, and it plays into a few stereotypes I felt were gimmicky. Specifically the portrayal of the 2 officers who seemed almost oblivious and even cartoonish. In real life, despite the popular jokes of the enlisted force, officers care deeply for the well-being of their troops and are generally attuned to at least their basic needs. But beyond the minor technical weaknesses, the story itself was extremely moving. There were myriad nuances and subtleties that may have escaped the notice of non-veterans or may not have had the same impact, but those little bits are what made the movie for me. I watched the movie on a cross-country flight so not the best environment but I found myself choked up during certain scenes that, had I had a little more privacy, would have devolved into a much more dramatic show of emotion because the movie expressed things I have been unable to myself. I don't have PTSD, but when I watched the movie the pain of my memories was brought sharply into focus and I connected with the characters in a way less common in other films. I think the film did exactly what it was intended to do. Not entertain, but incite. Incite anger at a system that sends men & women into intolerable situations then fails to provide adequate support when they come home broken. Incite sympathy for the hundreds of thousands left unsupported including their families. And shine a light on a problem that will affect American society for decades if not properly addressed.
Really enjoyed this film! A very well acted and touching Gem of a film. Really is an eye opening film for anyone thinking of joining the military i would recommend to watch this, this shows what it real is like coming back from a war zone and how different people deal with it. Would recommend everyone to watch this to truly understand how it feels to come back home to normal life with what has happened still in your mind.
