Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Insights shared by those left behind sharpen the focus on the sacrifices made by those who go off to war -- a message that might have been clearer were the film not so self-serving. – Laura Kern, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Rademacher's vigorous commitment to making the documentary, as well as to his large, close-knit family, deserves respect. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Rademacher comes up with compellingly unfamiliar documentary footage. ... Firefights caught unvarnished and in the moment are harrowing because the cameraman himself is, well, harrowed. – Bob Mondello, NPR, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: "Brothers at War" is designed (and limited) as a corrective to what its maker sees as the anti-war harangues preceding it. Director and Decatur, Ill., native Jake Rademacher has a strong personal story to relay. You wish the film, executive-produced by Ga – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Jun 24, 2010

Great documentary.

Great flick. Very touching portrayal of the family dynamic framed by the War in Iraq. A personal, up close view of what our patriots do every day. Made me very proud of our outstanding men in uniform.

If you would like some insight into the military....

this is a great documentary. I spent eight (8) years in an Army Infantry unit and this documentary really gives one a feel for the mundane and not so mundane life of being a soldier in a combat zone. I really enjoyed it and it brought back a lot of memories. Great job!

Truly inspiring

Wow, Jake poured his heart and soul into this video. Thank you so much for showin the world the real side of war.

Thank you for sharing your story. Everyone needs to see this. I hope it makes it to the big screen.

You inspired me to love my family even more and want to get to them even better!

Thank you Jake.
