a movie to see

I don't usually review movies. But I do try to write about things that affect me. Tonight we watched this movie. And although this isn't an "escape from reality"-type movie and it is difficult to watch in many respects, I think that everyone should see it. Have you seen it?

Taking Chance is a movie that made me think about honor, courage, respect, sacrifice. Made me stop and think about war, and my sons, and marines and soldiers everywhere, in a way that I never have before. And sometimes it's good to think about things.

I will admit I think I cried more than I possibly ever have during a movie.

Regardless of what you may think about the US government or policies, military, or stances on any current conflicts - rent this one and see it.

Like a producer said in the behind the scenes, it is important for us all to know that this journey takes place. It's just important for us all to know.

Yes, I saw this movie. It gives a different perspective on the consequences of war and a behind the scenes look at just what goes into bringing home casualties killed in the line of duty. A topic not often brought to light for the public. They showed this movie at the Base theater at Quantico. Since I work at Quantico, I overheard a lot of conversations about this film.
