  1. Normally we cheer our heroes on for their outer deeds and personal courage as they gain momentum over their inner & outer struggles, putting back the pieces previously taken from their psyche. In Jerry G. Angelo's film,Warfighter, whilst full of incredible action and suspense, we are transfixed with the wheels coming off in our hero's inner world as & when he (and his family) experience it. A realistic and masterful view of the battle fatigued mind that cannot rest, that must go on, that is duty & brother bound, a specialist that cannot be replaced, as duty is always pressing and it requires all of him. My hope is this film will help us to continue to identify better the signs of PTSD in our brave brother and sister Warfighters to understand them as whole humans, not just fighting machines. This film lays out signs on a path, we, as a society, need to follow to help heal & possibly prevent our heavily traumatized veterans.

  2. WARFIGHTER raises your "level" as a moviegoer! It challenges the viewer to see, recognize, and hold onto the numerous storyline "cues" set up in the 1st half of the movie, which are all further revealed & resolved in the 2nd half of the movie (great movies often utilize this technique). The thoughtful moviegoer will keenly pick up on the importance of: the daughter's special relationship with her father who has PTSD; the intensity of the first big PTSD nightmare; the flickering porch light; the deep concerns of the wives and families as their Navy SEALS go on yet another dangerous mission; the singing "Pavarotti" bird; and the mysterious "blonde girl" RYAN who seems to be both vulnerable and ominous at the same time (to mention just a few of the "cues"). The truly insightful moviegoer knows that they are simply UNABLE to expect what is still to come… and yet it is coming like a huge boulder from the sky, dropping on your head when you least expect it. WARFIGHTER is a "Masterpiece" for those who are up to the challenge- and the reward is so worth it!

  3. PTSD is a buzzword nowadays and because of this it has become a go to for dramatic films about the military. This is normally painted with a rough brush and we move on in the story using the PTSD as a plot device. It's frustrating and badly handled in most films. In Warfighter it is crafted and fully realized using excellent storytelling, acting and production value. This is not a story about PTSD, it is a story about how much our troops sacrifice and what that sacrifice does to them on the battlefield and at home. It's a wonderfully told story that takes you into these peoples lives and lets you see the fallout, triumphs and downfalls. Not judging, just showing. I'm excited to see the next film this director and team do. Beautifully shot, strongly told and leaves you with a better understanding and empathy of a subject that is far too often glossed over.

  4. I didn't really know what I was in for when I began watching this film Jerry a good friend of mine as well as a few others in the film. I expected it to be good but after it was over I sat quiet for several minutes in sheer awe and amazement for what I had just encountered. This film took me on a rollercoaster of emotions and left me definitely wanting more. Wow, the writing. The story lines and the caliber of acting. To be honest I am beaming with pride for Jerry and all involved in this film. Bravo to everyone involved. Wonderful story <3

  5. Loved it! Definitely a must see. It was very true to reality. With such a tough but common situation for many it hits home.

  6. The trouble our veterans go through after fighting a war for us is not only contemporary, it is timeless. In these political uncertain times, there is currently no head of the VA, this excellent film is a must see.

  7. "Warfighter" reminds me so much of an HBO art house movie, because of it's low-budget, complex characters and original story that is a cautionary tale of PTSD, Jerry G. Angelo did a great job and the movie is recommended!.
