Reviews of the Man DownThis review of Man Down is spoiler free
IT'S NOT OFTEN talked about by worldly governments, and when it is brought up it's not adequately discussed they treat it as if it's not something to worry about. But it is there are thousands of soldiers out there suffering from PTSD a lot of them are homeless, because their episodes of trauma can scare their families, it's a real thing in fact it's terrifying to think about it. But when it comes to Man Down, just because its main character suffers from PTSD episodes doesn't make it a good film.
In fact, it's what makes it bad because here it treats PTSD as if it's some form of schizophrenia, when the film's main character former U.S Marine Gabriel Drummer (Shia LeBeouf in his second collaboration with director Dito Montiel) is put through a desperate search for his estranged son and wife. Wildly running through, a post-apocalyptic America finding survivors with his best friend/comrade (Jai Courtney) who have survived what he thinks is an apocalypse. It whisks us through the different flashbacks of this soldier's life, who goes from being a lovable family man living with his wife (Kate Mara) and his young son. Then it shifts rapidly to when he's in training, and then going to war in Afghanistan, it harshly mimics this process for almost the entire length of the film.
The film rushes through these stages (we'll call them LeBeouf stages) at ridiculous pace, giving us moments of heart, and feelings sympathy for this character but the heart doesn't beat for a long time. There are of course moments when it does dimly shine either when he's leaving for war and his wife tries to convince him that he should stay home, or when he is talking to his war Psychiatrist (Gary Oldman) about his symptoms and what happened in an infamous room. It becomes slightly sombre but when the lights go out from the film's heart it's back to being confusing, trying to be manipulative but in order to do this there would have to be some obvious degree of success, there's none of that here.
Although Man Down has a minor earnest plea, it tries to call for unearned sympathy for its main character not just in the final moments but throughout the whole film - perhaps if it was correctly conceived, we might've felt it. But it's confusingly told to such a degree that it never really comes together.
VERDICT: This suffers not because of its subject but because it's confusing, it barely has any heart and it whisks by at almost ridiculous pace it's hard to get into the story.
