Joes War
Jumping on the back of other war stories.. This is awful. the acting is terrible. Could have been a great story but falls down with the terrible acting. Its amost like they are reading from a board. There is no emotion or conviction involved with this movie. The actors should be ashamed of themselves. And so should the producers, just a shameful way of bringing in money from the real stories of soldiers in the fireline. If you want to tell a story, tell it well. And have respect.

Good Movie
Very good film. Extremely sensitive topic that needs more films like this which show realistic depictions. Joe Lido and Mike Markiwicz give very respectable portrayals as the two leads. Armand Asante is as usual a very solid star in a cast which includes the ever respectable Ed Asher and Tom Sizemore supporting this film with style and professionalism.

The rest of the cast does a fine job in keeping you interested as well. A fine job getting the point across that PTSD affects everyone in your circle. A great film to bring new awareness to the affects of PTSD. Well done

Review OF Joe's War
Joe's War tells the story of a returning two tour soldier coping with the horrors of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD). It tackles the hard realities surrounding PTSD in an honest, hometown way.

The Staten Island/Brooklyn feel and real world display of compassion and love so native to that area and it's people help keep the story moving. The musical score fits perfectly.

Props to the writer for his passion portraying an issue which deserves attention.

The acting was above par, with my highest ratings going to Armand Assante, Michael Markiewicz, and Lois Vanaria.

WOW, What a great movie! So glad I watched this one.
Incredibly moving picture. The writing is fantastic. Highly recommended! I would recommend you watch this movie. The story line is an important topic everyone should watch. Great writing Great editing! All though some of the topics made me a little sad. Its the point of the movie to fill you with emotion.

A must see!
An amazing, heartfelt movie that captivates your attention from the very start. You become invested in each character and find yourself wanting to learn more. A true insight into the lives so many war heroes lead, that the average person knows nothing about. A wonderfully produced and executed film. A must see!!

I see dead people
Joe (Michael Markiewicz) a home town hockey star comes home from the war and has trouble adjusting. He can't open up and drinks his life away. Eventually he sees a doctor.

PTSD is a sad thing. What is even sadder is when Hollywood can't respect those who serve with a decent film about it. Where did Joe serve? In the first half of the film it was Iraq, the second half Afghanistan. I guess it was all the same to Phil Falcone. The flashback scenes were not coherent. One time his buddies are being killed in a home to home search, in another scene they are killed by some Iraqistanis in blue jeans and sneakers. Armand Assante was a joke as a doctor, with his Mohawk comb over. In order to make the film seem like it had worth they kept playing the same sad piano riff over and over again. Couldn't afford a decent sound track after the Edward Asner/Tom Sizemore cameos.

This is part of a genre I call "PTSD exploitation films." You take a hot and sensitive topic and you make a quick and dirty film about it, hoping to cash in. The acting wasn't good. The flash backs lacked a coherent story. Joe hears and sees a helicopter at the airport and has a flashback...to what a helicopter? Nope. Playing poker. In fact you never see a helicopter in any flashback. So why did a helicopter trigger a poker game? Almost Ed Wood bad.

The film has some PTSD stats at the end to make you think you watched something meaningful.

Guide: F-word. Near sex. No nudity.

I saw this movie at the film festival and i loved it, really shows how PTSD can affect someone, and what our hero's have gone through to give us our freedom, I highly recommend watching this movie! I also bought the DVD on Pre-order so i can watch it again, I can't wait to get my DVD.

Important and timely film
Joe's War is a very effective and relevant film. It focuses on the rapidly growing PTSD epidemic that's claiming the lives of many American veterans.

The film follows Joe (Michael Markiewicz) a soldier returning home from two tours in Afghanistan who can no longer face the "normality" of everyday life after experiencing the horrors of war.

It isn't long before Joe turns to alcohol and the relationships with his friends, family and girlfriend begin to deteriorate. A psychiatrist (Armand Assante) and a fellow veteran (Louis Vanaria) may be the only two people who can save him from total self-destruction.

This is what the Hurt Locker would be if it followed the Jeremy Renner character once he returned home. Now this isn't an all out war film but it does feature some very graphic battle scenes that are hard to shake.

I highly recommend this film. It's a great character study and it brings awareness to a very critical issue in our country.

A fair account of PTSD
I suppose its a good movie depicting the effects of PTSD, however, the cinematography, acting, music and depth of plot lets this movie down. Having watched this, I'm now inclined to watch The Deer Hunter (1978) again for the 100th time,it is with out a doubt the best film of its kind.
