(us) wrote: very informative, best documentary I have seen lately
(br) wrote: awful movie. where should i start? maybe i should start with the horrible cast or the recycled script. I am not sure where to start but not worth the time, even if the tickets a free.
(us) wrote: Very cool to see to some of the real special ops footage. Also, I really enjoyed learning about Rob Perilli, the fallen green beret and how his family was able to get closure from Alex Quade's mission.
(us) wrote: I loved it. you'll get attached to the characters and the twist at the end had me on the edge
(es) wrote: This is a fantastic movie, especially to fans of David Lynch during the 90's (think Lost Highway). This is the kind of director that we need now because Lynch doesn't have too much time left. I highly recommend.
(de) wrote: its really good and fun
(fr) wrote: Faith is so personal and I applaud these people for telling their heartbreaking stories.
(au) wrote: Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates had this to say about the film:"'Danger Close' is a gripping story of courage, loss and love as we witness first-hand graphic portrayals of combat operations and a dedicated journalist's determination to bring closure to the family of a soldier killed in action. The courage of the troops in action -- and of the embedded journalist -- is evident, as is the deep sense of loss over an admired comrade. The story is a needed reminder of the many sacrifices of our men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the brave journalists who accompanied them into battle

(kr) wrote: Steve Caple did an excellent job capturing Cleveland with amazing angles and shots of the city and nearby neighborhoods. The characters all seemed like kids you'd grow up with if you're from 'The Land.' Whether you're from here or not, it's a must see!-Chad

(ca) wrote: Probably too long for its own good, but still takes you on a fascinating ride of hero-worship and villain scapegoating surrounding a tragic set of events.
(au) wrote: Excellent and fair coverage of a tough subject. The rare doc that doesn't have a slanted POV but really just wants to get to the truth.
(es) wrote: It was a feel good movie of some good folks risking their lives for Polish Jews.
