Academy Award® winner Ang Lee (2012, Best Director, Life Of Pi ) 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 a 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.

I was also anxious to see how it looked in UHD, some reviews mentioned it was quite distracting, but I didn't think so. I personally liked the detail.
So, no this is not an action filled summer blockbuster with lots of explosions unless you count fireworks at the halftime show. It does have a good story that makes you think a little deeper about what it is to send these kids off to war and what they wrestle with from their experiences. It almost requires a sequel itself though, I would really be interested to see how the guys adjust after the war and they settle into a civilian life as this movie just portrayed them receiving a brief reprieve to do promotional stuff for Uncle Sam.
The cast was good, and Vin Diesels character though short lived was interesting, would like some back story on this guy.
