Such an amazing film!

Tom Cruise is definitely one of my favorite actors (if not my favorite) and this film is one of his best (if not the best film). This has to be one of my all-time favorite movies. Definitely worth watching, you won't regret it!

I watched this without knowing what to expect and trust me the movie won me from the first moment, as the movie goes on it's just getting better and better, Tom Cruise at his very best!

In my opinion this deserves to be on the Top 250 list, This film is honestly one of the best dramas/war dramas I have ever seen, combined with a superb story, and action of amazing creativity in the dialogue, setting and all the scenes! Truly Oscar worthy, a shame it didn't win any, the makers of the film really deserved more credit.

My Rating Is 9/10 .
