Liam Hemsworth plays a cliché adequately. I totally get the fact that the other guy is in love with the small town girl he left months ago, but clearly she has changed dramatically. If you're looking for a writer for your movie website or other publication, I'd also love to hear from you. The story takes place in 1969 as we follow a group of American soldiers in Vietnam trying to survive the war. I'm sure they had phones in those days. I seriously doubt that anyone involved actually experienced the Vietnam War firsthand.
They were just generic young dudes trying to survive, albeit the more conservative lead volunteered and had that honor code as part of his personality. Love and Honor ends up being yet another romantic melodrama that never explores the true value of the two words in the title. Joiner is in love with Jane Aimee Teegarden and all he can think of is surviving along with his friends in order to return home safely and marry the girl of his dreams. Liam Hemsworth and Teresa Palmer are very good looking actors and shared some chemistry, but the entire premise was so cheesy that it was hard to believe their story. Violence The opening sequence takes place in Vietnam, and there are a couple of close calls, but only one character is actually shot and injured. Would I advise you to watch it? Lastly, this is a film that raises some questions about the Vietnam War, questions that have never been addressed in a Vietnam War film before or at least any Vietnam war film I've seen.
Disappointingly, the second half labours, jumping right back onto the beaten track en route to a bland and entirely expected conclusion. Neither guy went to see his parents on leave from Vietnam in America. All in all, a film worth watching. As much as the producers wanted to appeal to a male audience, I think this film will only seduce young girls. Anyway, the storyline was weak and the acting is pretty terrible, but for some unknown reason, you end up sticking with the movie, just to see what these teenagers are going to do with there life's. Pretty brilliant the way everything is shot in an 'interior' like style since the budget is low, very smart shooting in that close-up, interior shot style.
Joiner wins her love back when Mickey claims they have deserted the war in protest, and ends up falling for one of Juniper's friends, Candace Teresa Palmer. With Love and Honour, Liam Hemsworth and Teresa Palmer bring some Aussie flavour to the quintessential American staple: a love story set in wartime. Whenever you don't have a solid script it's hard for the performances to be strong and credible. Good power of love the guy turns his head. The only problem is that the action scenes only take place during the beginning of the film and the rest of the story is a plain formulaic chick flick which happens to star young good looking actors in order to appeal to its audience. Every movie that I have seen him in has been disappointing, which is due to the fact that he just hasn't got any screen charisma.
In such movies, the drama does not have to be top quality--we get caught up in the silly story and suspend our disbelief to enjoy the tackiness of the whole thing. The first 15 minutes into it I thought to myself 'Oh boy, another cruddy movie bites the dust', but this film, in a very subtle way, comes into it's own and blossoms into an endearing story. It's predictable from the beginning to the end and the whole, leaving war for my girl thing became slightly tedious. And this is a strong argument, because his girlfriend was the hippies. One day, Dalton get the chance to see the girl.
Love and Honor tells the story of a soldier in Vietnam, Dalton, who takes extreme measures when he receives a Dear John from his girl back home; he jumps his RandR and flies back to Michigan to try to win her back. The production design team never managed to transport us into that world, like other great films have done so more recently Argo. It also stresses the importance of honesty in romantic relationships. A decent option as a mind-numbing stimulus, watching this ninety-three minute film will feel like? Mickey discusses some of his fellow soldiers who've died in battle, and Dalton hits a pacifist who was kissing his fiancee. Forget the politics for a few minutes. It doesn't do much for a male audience and it is just another formulaic cliché film that does nothing to break from the boundaries of the genre. Mickey is also in no hurry to return.
The problem, however, is that Love and Honor occasionally veers off of this course and tries to be more serious. Thus the two soldiers arrive in Michigan and catch up with Jane, who is calling herself Juniper now and involved in an anti-war movement along with several other teens. But you have to realize that he still thinks of her as who she was before. Mickey, an uncompromising young soldier, decides to help Joiner and make sure he returns without being caught. One loses it and one gains it.
Round-Up: Liam Hemsworth is definitely not in the same league as his bigger brother, Chris Hemsworth who has done a great job with Thor. A problem--both girls are Vietnam protesters, and the fact that Dalton and Mickey are soldiers provides an awkward backdrop to their developing romances. Dalton up with a plan for the return of Jenny, he told her that he had deserted from the army. The music didn't fit the story, the charisma of the lead actors was not evident, and neither the sets nor the hairstyles reflected the times. Needless to say, I would advise watching a different movie.
Mickey is ready to forget about everything: a career, the duties and even about their own lives. There is some balance in terms of the portrayal of different cliché types of the 60s era. It's not a movie that I would recommend for entertainment but it's a watchable drama. To make matters worse, none of the characters have any depth nor do they arouse empathy in the viewer. This was actually a very good film. The film tells the tale of Mickey Hemsworth and Dalton Austin Stowell , two soldiers who spend their week off from Vietnam flying back to America, where Dalton plans to reunite with his best gal Jane Aimee Teegarden. In what proves to be both a blessing and a curse, Love and Honour plays out like two films in one.
But then I understood that he admired her commitment to anything, since had never been committed. As a result, the movie seems very much like a 21st century teenage fantasy about what the Vietnam period was like. Aimee Teegarden and Austin Stowell served only as the back story for the main one, but they too lacked chemistry. There are plenty of other great independent rom- coms that are worth checking out instead of this. The two main male characters are portrayed as not feeling responsibility for any of their actions throughout the movie. I also recently saw Upside Down and if you are looking for a date movie or just a romantic mind's wandering,this is a great and better choice. You don't have to agree with some of the politics in this movie but anyone who served can identify with the emotional conflict, the comradeship and the dichotomy.
