I was tempted to give this film a score of 1 but the location photography is lovely and it attempts to address some important issues of war and our deeply held values so I brought it up to a 4 in acknowledgment of these strengths (and the touching ending).
Maria Martinez' character is narcissistic, spoilt, sanctimonious and unbelievably poisonous. She hits the male lead which is completely unacceptable in the circumstances and treats him like a doll she can play with and torture. Why he comes back for more is far beyond me.....
But that is just the surface of my disgust...... to insinuate that ANY soldier, let alone special ops, would be so stupid as to go out and bring explosives in to kill all the men he is in charge of protecting is plain insulting to every soldier everywhere - NO ONE is that stupid or 'holier than thou' and to insinuate the families of the dead men would call that heroism is plain crazy...... I was sickened by this story.....
Two young kids growing up in the rodeo cowboy life form a foundation with each other and family. He becomes a Champion Rodeo cowboy and special forces soldier but is crushed by war and personal loss. She must watch him struggle. He must draw on faith and the "cowboy way" to reclaim his will to live and the love of his life.
