To first reveal who I was talking about before the film, when I said it featured three (grand)sons of famous actors and directors, I was of course talking about Scott "son of Clint" Eastwood, Milo "son of Mel" Gibson and Will "grandson of Sir Richard" Attenborough, who all played (what else was there?) soldiers in Rod Luries "The Outpost", a recount of a real-life episode of the war in Afghanistan which happened in 2009 and inspired CNN anchor Jake Tapper (who could be seen interviewing surviviors of the battle during the closing credits) to write the non-fiction book "The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor" recounting the events. That book - and the aforementioned interviews - were the sources for screenwriters Paul Tamasy and and Eric Johnson (#0850 "The Fighter") and their screenplay; Lurie - who previously directed the military prison drama #0368 "The Last Castle" and the political intrigue of #0395 "The Contender", turned this into his third outing at our sneak. Here's the trailer for "The Outpost":
How did you like the film which split rather obviously into two fairly different one-hour parts? How did you like the characters, played by the the actors listed above, but also Caleb Landry Jones (whose real-life counterpart co-produced the film) and Orlando Bloom? And if you left before the film was over, what prompted you to do so? Please write down your thoughts about "The Outpost" as a reply to this (not out-)post. Pardon the pun.
Wie kann man bei dem Unterschied an Ausrüstung und mit der Tatsache, das die Amerikaner die Eindringlinge sind, von Tapferkeit sprechen?
Der Film blendet zu viel aus.
Es gab zumindest einen Soldaten mit posttraumatischer Belasungsstörung. Ist das jetzt ein Fortschritt?
