Editorial Reviews

"Lt. Dan Band: For The Common Good" is the award-winning feature-length documentary that transcends genres and celebrates America's heroes. This moving film chronicles the journey of Academy Award nominated actor, Gary Sinise who since 9/11, has vowed to never to forget those who are willing to give all.

By following Gary and his "Lt. Dan Band" around the world for nearly two years, including Kuwait and Iraq, we meet many of our brave men and women in uniform, our heroic first responders, their families, and the wonderful citizens that support them. In the process, we are inspired ourselves to actively participate in supporting America's finest, and to also never forget.

With an amazing soundtrack and special appearances by numerous celebrities, including Academy Award winners Jon Voight and Robert Duvall, as well as many others, "Lt. Dan Band: For The Common Good" combines star power, great music and an uplifting message that resonates with a wide audience. It is that rare film that entertains even as it inspires.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Exceptional Award-Winning Documentary Movie July 29, 2011
Format:DVD
"Lt. Dan Band: For The Common Good" is an exceptional full-length documentary movie that rallies all who experience it around our flag, our nation, and the men and women who selflessly serve our country and daily place themselves in harm's way. At this time in our nation's history, when partisan wrangling and vitriol, media bias, and political grandstanding dominate the culture and airwaves, this movie rallies everyone who watches it around what really matters - those who throughout history, but especially today, voluntarily put their lives on the line to defend us and our enduring freedoms.

Actor Gary Sinise created the role of Lt. Dan Taylor in Robert Zemeckis' award-winning landmark 1994 movie "Forrest Gump." In this role, Lt. Dan himself becomes a role model for so many - a soldier from a long line of military men who have died in battle, only to be fortuitously, yet reluctantly saved on the battlefield, being left wheelchair-bound as a cripple. Lt. Dan falls on deeply hard times, but then rebounds with a vengeance when he and Forrest build the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, ultimately becoming very wealthy and getting a set of space-age prosthetic legs to boot. Sinise had performed on TV and in film in various roles prior to that, but the endearing character of Lt. Dan made him a favorite of moviegoers and Americans at large. His success in that role propelled him to further great acting roles, including leads in "Apollo 13," "The Green Mile," "Mission to Mars," but most recently and prominently as Detective Mac Taylor (Taylor - a coincidence?) on the popular member of TV's CSI franchise, "CSI: New York." One of his most triumphant and exemplary roles may indeed be as himself, as leader and bassist of the Lt. Dan Band.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Patriotic Film That's Powerful & Important July 29, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got a chance to see LT. DAN BAND: FOR THE COMMON GOOD at last winter's Sedona Film Festival in Arizona and became an instant cheerleader for the film.

At a glance, you may think that it's just a concert film of actor Gary Sinise playing for troops but you'd be wrong: it's so much more than that. Always moving at a brisk pace, the film features how Sinise came to be so involved in our troops (including a fascinating back story for Lt. Dan's character in FORREST GUMP), his career as an actor, how he came to form the band, a history of the USO, his visits to Iraq & other theatres of operations as well as meeting our troops and their struggles both in combat and recovery. There's so much here and you come away from the film with such a better understanding because of it.

It is also a very emotional film as well. I can't imagine a dry eye after watching the sequence where the band plays for the children of fallen soldiers.

I am not connected to this film at all so I'm not benefiting personally by saying this, but: every American should see this film. And everyone else should see it to understand what makes America so special.

I really appreciate and enjoy the LT. Dan Band, but the documentary seriously just blew me away! Gary and his band are such amazing, giving Americans and Patriots! The film will fill you in on all details from their start to where and what they are doing now. Absolutely Amazing! A MUST SEE!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Someone in Hollywood believes in America! August 9, 2011
Format:DVD
What a breath of fresh air!
Incredible. A busy and popular Hollywood star voluntarily sets aside his time, gets some friends together, and stands with those who stand for us. This is what American film stars 'used to do' when America was indeed the hope of the world. May Gary and the Floras find 'an army' of fellows in this most noble of efforts.
God bless America, and God bless the Lt. Dan Band!

Gary Sinise and his band are true Patriots in every sense of the word!!

Cynthia and I just watched Lt Dan's Band for the Common Good!! Great piece on how Gary Sinise has taken his love for Country, the Military, and 1st Responders, and did something about it. Gary's Foundation really gives back, folks. Buy his movie and encourage others to do the same. You will be inspired, motivated and moved!!!
If you rather not buy the movie, at the very least, go to the Lt Dan Band website, [...], and pay $3.99 to stream the movie on your computer. You will be glad you did. Money from streaming the movie supports the Foundation.

Cynthia and I are retired Army (Still serving as Retirees).

God Bless LT Dan and His Band!!

This movie is not just about a great guy and a patriotic band but about a time of unbelievable devastation and inspiring heroism in the history of the United States of America. Everyone should have a copy for their grandchildren to explain 9-11. i bought 10 copies.

What an outstanding evening of entertainment watching Gary Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band entertain our military men and women and their families. It brought lots of smiles and a few tears. Gary is the Bob Hope of this military generation. Well done all around!
