About the Movie

Three-time Academy Award® winner Ang Lee brings his extraordinary vision to Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, based on the widely-acclaimed, bestselling novel. The story is told from the point of view of 19-year-old private Billy Lynn (Joe Alwyn) who, along with his fellow soldiers in Bravo Squad, becomes a hero after a harrowing battle in Iraq and is brought home temporarily for a victory tour. Through a sequence of flashbacks the truth about what really happened is revealed – contrasting the realities of the war with America’s distorted perceptions of heroism. Co-starring Kristen Stewart, Chris Tucker, Garrett Hedlund, with Vin Diesel, and Steve Martin.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: For a movie about the aftershocks of battle, Billy Lynn feels curiously tranquil. – Tom Shone, Newsweek, Nov 17, 2016

Rotten: Everything feels stilted and strangely flat. – Adam Graham, Detroit News, Nov 18, 2016

Fresh: An interesting story buoyed by good acting that feels - and this is a lazy word but the appropriate one - weird. – Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, Nov 17, 2016

Fresh: A unique, hyper-real whatsit that should be seen the way it was shot. – Adam Nayman, Little White Lies, Feb 9, 2017

Don't waste your money or time!

This movie was a huge disappointment and waste of money. I just wanted some entertainment and this did not deliver.

Strong Performances make this Ang Lee film worth watching!

Unfortunately, our local theater wasn't able to show "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" in 120 fps 3-D. But, I was able to see it on iMAX standard form. I wasn't disappointed, but the strong performances from the lead actors made this film worth watching. Kirsten Stewart continues to impress me, but newcomer Joe Alwyn really delivered as Billy Lynn...I see more great things coming from him in the future.

Totally worth the watch.

A little (and pleasant deparature) from Ang Lee's typical mastery and a wonderfully sewn together story. I didnt read the book, so I loved it. Ignore people who call this a cookie cutter soldier ruminiating on war during a break. It's fresh and well acted. And Stewart, while not taking ove the movie, continutes to impress. She's a huge draw and for good reason, but the entire cast is great. There are a few minor things alluded to like Destinys Child and the Dallas Cowboys that were not the real thing,but other than that, solid movie. I was fortunate enought to skip the previews and just go. Happy I did.
