I almost did not watch The Messenger. I am glad I did. This is my new favorite movie. It was really great to see a movie that pertains to war but does not avidly show it. I am not a fan of war movies, so it was really nice to see a movie that was about war without directly showing it. I found that the feeling of war and the emotions that people have to go through are much better portrayed through something like this. You don't usually see the families of the soldiers in the movies, it is usually the soldiers thinking about their families. Absolutely one of the most amazing movies I have ever seen. The acting was superb, I felt every feeling they portrayed. It was great. I would recommend this to every single person I come across. I found that this really helped me look a little deeper into war besides on the battlefield. It's absolutely a 5/5. No other movie has compared since I've watched The Messenger.

Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster did such an amazing job in this film. I cried my eyes out every time they went and delieverd the bad news. This is such a raw and strong movie. I felt like I was very intune with what the characters were going through. I really respect this movie, our troops, the families of soldiers and the soldiers that have the duty of delivering such horrible news. 5/5 stars. Such a moving film. A must see, even if your not into war movies, this one is well worth the watch.

Woody's best... this movie deals with a very tough issue. You haven't had a tough job, till you've had their job.

Very powerful film. I don't think I could ever give someone news like that. If you enjoyed this I also recommend Taking Chance with Kevin Bacon. 5/5

Great movie, just kind of stumbled upon it and so glad I did...Fantastic cast (Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster shine). This movie basically shows you how the loss of a family member, due to war related casualties, affects people. 10/10

a very powerful film that perfectly captures every emotion it tries to evoke in its audience. harrelson and foster give the performances of their lifetimes in this movie that isnt easily forgotten. if you havent seen it yet watch and if you have already watch it again.

its always nice to see woody. very nice depiction of an aspect of the armed forces we dont get to know about in mainstream. 8.5

The Messenger is a very strong and touching movie.. Ben Foster and Woody Harrelson did great jobs in this.. I found it to have the same style as "Taking Chance" in which Kevin Bacon escorts the body of the fallen to the family.. This isn't your traditional War movie, it deals with the raw emotion of the lost and those who come back but never really do.. I completely agree with Woody Harrelson's character's comment that every fallen American Soldier's funeral should be televised, that way more people would feel the gravity of losing someone who defended our Freedom.. 5/5..
