This well-acted debut feature from Michael Connors (a former Army captain) is too limited in ambition and scope to satisfy our expectations.Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, 12.27.2012
An intermittently compelling but ultimately disappointing drama that loses track of its own point of view in favor of more generic storytelling.Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times, 01.03.2013
