“Can you look back to when you met the one you love the most and remember exactly how it was? Not as in where you were or what she was wearing, but rather in what you saw in her that made you say, ‘Yes, this is what I came here for.'” – Cherry

Brief Synopsis – A college student falls in love with a classmate and their whirlwind romance leads him to enlist in the army and eventually become a bank robber trying to fund his drug habit.
My Take on it – This was a film that I heard about a few months back and was quite interested in seeing due to the fact that it had an intriguing premise, stars Tom Holland and is directed by the Russo brothers.
Unfortunately, the film is a mess.
The characters story is all over the place and never really finds its stride along the way.
The characters aren’t presented in a sympathetic enough way which makes it even harder to really care about what they say or do.
The cinematography is done in a far too shaky way which makes watching things even more difficult to remain focused.
The Russo Brothers are a great action-based team, but this film’s is a bit too dramatic for them and the material far too dark to work well.
They should stick to making fun popcorn films instead of trying something as heavy as this one.
This is quite a shame due to the high potential that this film had along the way.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The main character’s name is never mentioned in the movie, the other soldiers had their last names on their uniforms while his simply said “soldier” and people referred to him as “dude” but never said his name. While Tom Holland is credited as the character “Cherry” the first or last name of said character is never revealed. (From IMDB)
Rating – Razzie Worthy (4/10)
