Storyline

The Long Road Home tells the story of the eight-hour battle in Sadr City on April 4, 2004, that followed the ambush of a newly-arrived American platoon. Told in real time through the eyes of untested soldiers in combat for the first time, their families anxiously awaiting news on the home front, and ordinary Iraqis trapped in the chaos of war, the series gives viewers an intimate and unforgettable portrait of what it's really like to go to war. Based on Martha Raddatz's acclaimed New York Times-bestselling book.

Disappointing Iraq-War Melodrama
8 November 2017 | by wgingerySee all my reviews

We want war stories to express the paradox of war: how we hate war and how we love war; how it destroys life and affirms life's worth.

Don't look for that complexity here, though. What it offers, instead, is the conventional. If you've seen one Iraq War movie, you'll come away feeling you've already seen all this before.

These people seem incapable of doing the unexpected despite the horrific blood and violence., As they grapple with death. you get no sense of unbearable stress demolishing their façades and wrenching their guts.

It's not entirely the actors' fault, though, the way the dialogue just plods along, giving them no opening to get us inside their characters and reveal the interior.

That leaves much of the dramatic work to the annoying musical underscoring. It won't leave you alone; it's always there dictating what you're supposed to feel.

In the end, with nothing unexpected or surprising to grab you, you're left feeling you've wasted your time. .
