An Act of War (2015)

IMDb plot summary: A veteran tries to put his life back together, but is drawn to deeds that may be more dangerous than his tour of duty.
Directed by Ryan M. Kennedy. Starring Russ Russo, Natasha Alam, Doug E. Doug, and Joseph R. Gannascoli.

Spoilers ahead.

This movie is a mess. It wants so badly to be taken seriously, but it's written awkwardly, acted poorly, and is boring for most of the way before becoming incoherent at the end. The only scene that kind of works is the main character's death scene, and that's just because the situation is such as sad one that it's impossible not to feel a *little* bit moved by the young man's difficulties rejoining life. That all goes out the window, though, with the ridiculous twist ending added on to the end. It all plays like a student film. Definitely not worth a watch.

1 star.

This movie is not on Flickchart yet. I will update this review when it's added to the database.
