While film critics gave the movie accolades, Iraq veteran Kate Hoit called it “Hollywood's version of the Iraq war”. Writing in the Huffington Post, she said “their version is inaccurate” but admitted that it was more accurate than other recent Iraq War movies. The film was “automatically ruined within the first few minutes.”
