- Beautiful made movie 8/11/2019 12:00:00 AM by rachelbbbbb
Beautiful made movie! It's a movies which didn't bring out the violence of the war, but a emotional and touchy story of a hero. It's really rare that we even see a Vietnam war movies. I literally cried throughout the whole movies. Very glad to see.Great pick on actor and subject! Love the concept that this movie has brought hope to our life. PTSD was well written and showed in front of us. All the suffers that those veterans had been through. Great storyline based on real story. For sure that this story has "heart" , I really hope that people can see, feel and understand what veterans had been through and provide support for them. Definitely recommend!
- A True American Hero! 1/21/2020 12:00:00 AM by ncoutlander
After seeing 1917 I really wasn't expecting much when I started watching the movie. 1917 would be a tough act to follow. I have to say now that at least for me...the true war Story vs a hearsay war story was way better.. At the time I knew nothing about William Pitsenbarger. I'm glad I refused all temptation to do a Google Search before watching the movie, I simply followed the story and was not disappointed. Beautifully written and I'm sure you will tear up, once you hear multiple witnesses describing the Airman's heroics.

First of all, I have never seen a movie take on a war story like this. Think Hacksaw Ridge, meets Saving Private Ryan without all the gore. It's not about the nations, the generals, the guns, or the tanks- it's about the people. The Last Full Measure is a Drama that happens to be a war movie. Plus, you have never seen performances like those given by William Hurt, Ed Harris, Sam Jackson, Diane Ladd, and Chris Plummer. I got to see the movie at a special screening in Washington DC, and the entire audience, including military brass, had tears running down their cheeks by the end. And, trust me, they weren't tears of sorrow-It leaves you with a feeling of joy and gratitude for any solider who places themself in the line of fire. Anyone who doesn't appreciate this film has no empathy. I would highly recommend seeing this in theaters, not just for the action, but to fully appreciate the nuances in these actors' eyes. I went with my grandmother who doesn't usually like war movies, and she won't stop talking about it.
- Great Movie 1/23/2020 12:00:00 AM by jstrandberg-885-301593
This was a great movie. People who nit-pick it miss the point. Movies are supposed to entertain us, they are not history lessons. Sure there are a few mistakes, but nothing that detracts from the story or the man's heroism.
And for you guys talking about his "sergeant strips" that change did not take effect until Oct. 1967 and this action happened in April 1966. At the time of the action his 3-stripes indicated Senior Airman, which is still an Airman.
Sit back and enjoy the film. I'm sure you won't regret it. God bless you William Pitsenbarger.
- Others sacrifice so I may have an easy life. 1/21/2020 12:00:00 AM by steveab-71698
On occasion I have been courageous. Sometimes I see it in others. But where and in the time I live, is the easy abundant safe culture, becoming devoid of values of character and promoting self interest above all else. This story is important, since in time, it may be seen as a fictitious fable that few will be able to identify with. A few need to live and tell such stories. More than anything, I'm glad I have the insight that allowed me the privilege of seeing and understanding this movie. War doesn't leave us, it simply changes shape. Nowadays we have the war for control of our minds, wallets and spirits. No blood spilled, just dumbing down. This is a well told story of humility, selflessness and sacrifice. I won't be around later when no-one identifies or cares about this story, or other stories like it. And I wouldn't want to live in that time anyway.
