Ryan Phillippe in Iraq War Stop-Loss Trailer

Whether you are for the current Iraq War or against it, you gotta admit that the whole idea of “stop-loss” is just goddamn unAmerican. How do you force soldiers to do additional tours of combat when they have honorably and willingly served out their term? They signed up for a specific term, and they’ve done their duty, and now you’re going to force them to go back against their will? That’s fucking out of this world unAmerican, man, I don’t care what anyone says. The Ryan Phillippe movie “Stop Loss” tackles that subject. In “Stop Loss”, Ryan Phillippe plays a Texas soldier who has served his tour in Iraq, but is mandated to return due to the stop-loss policy, but refuses to do so.

Starring Abbie Cornish, Ryan Phillippe, Channing Tatum, Rob Brown, Alex Frost, and directed by Kimberly Ane Peirce (“Boys Don’t Cry”).

Fight the Man March 28th, 2008.

Check out the trailer for it below.

    I thought the movie sucked. Does everyone in Hollywood hate the United States of America? This movie sucked because it was way too political and not at all believable. Stop-loss doesn’t even work the way they portray it, so it is essentially a twisted lie about how the Army works designed to make America look bad. If you have to lie to make your point, then you have no point. I wish I could get my money back.
