Set in World War II a battle-hardened U.S. Army Staff Sergeant, Don 'Wardaddy' Collier played by Brad Pitt, is faced with a unique situation when one of his fellows is killed and is replaced by Norman Ellison (Logan Lerman).
The film is a deep question on the morality of war, whether people who are fighting for the right cause share the same ethics as the enemy or not. In teaching Norman how to face the brutalities during the final push of the allied forces into Nazi Germany in 1945, Wardaddy is faced with his concsience in the face of Norman.
Brad Pitt has been a bankable name in Hollywood, and this role will be counted as one of his best. The movie is a fully fledged war movie, with the setting of WW II and has some of the much asked questions on the need of a war.
Roman Vasnyanov’s cinematography as well as Steven Price’s music have added to the grit and the feel of the film.
The movie has been directed by David Ayer and stars Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña, Jon Bernthal, Jason Isaacs and Scott Eastwood in pivotal roles.
