Two Line Reviews - #245

Movie: In the Valley of Elah (2007)

Plot: A US soldier returned from Iraq goes missing in his camp and when his father goes in search of his son, he finds that his son had been butchered and burnt. With a detective's help, the resilient father - an ex army man - goes on the hunt for the killer(s) and ends up finding too.

  • Tommy Lee Jones as the patriotic, intelligent and caring father does a splendid underplay and to give him nice company as the detective is Charlize Theron
  • With a simple plot, the side-story of the ill effects of having to fight in a useless war on the army men is shown wonderfully
  • The detective act , tracking through clues is shown nicely
Delivers soundly, a nice little message.
