Storyline Heading
A group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq struggles to integrate back into family and civilian life, while living with the memory of a war that threatens to destroy them long after they've left the battlefield.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama War - This is not the war movie that a lot of the advertising seems to suggest but a fact-based drama focusing on the lives of soldiers after they return home from war. Miles Teller and newcomer Beulah Koale are the leads, with Haley Bennett being the most prominent supporting player. Constant language, drug use, sexual content, bloody violence, and dark adult subject matter make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Some PTSD movies (like First Blood) include a share of "rah rah” moments to satisfy certain elements of the audience. There's none of that here. Thank You for Your Service is straightforward drama and leaves an uneasy impression about how much more the recipients of that platitude are owed than what the government is giving them.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good I'll admit that I kept my arms folded for the first 30 minutes. Then something clicked for me—I don't recall exactly what—and suddenly I was entranced by how different it felt from the usual, and engrossed by the characters and their problems.

NY Post Full Review
Above Average ...a thoughtful drama which sags when it tries to shoehorn its characters into by-the-numbers plot points. ...the film also edges dangerously close to conferring sainthood on Adam as he runs interference for his friend.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average seems too timid by half, crucially lacking in the outrage that should be its core value. ...the film has a connect-the-dots quality that works against the passionate performances of a first-rate cast.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 16 moviegoers:
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The lone male loved it.
ADULTS: Great Reviews! Five of the seven males loved it. One enjoyed it very much and one felt it was an "average" movie. Four of the eight ladies loved it, with two more rating it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. The last two felt it was an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
For Sergeant Adam Schumann (MILES TELLE)-and many soldiers like him-the process of leaving combat back in Iraq was as seemingly simple as getting on that plane. But standing on the tarmac again in the arms of loved ones would turn out to be merely a first step in the long and exacting journey of actually returning home.

Saskia Schumann (HALEY BENNETT), Adam's wife and mother of two, who vacillates between compassion and frustration as she searches for the new normal; Will Waller (JOE COLE), a warrior who made it through being "blown up seven times in one deployment," only to return to a broken existence; Tausolo Aeiti (BEULAH KOALE), now dealing with the aftermath of the bomb explosion that left him with a traumatic brain injury, hero status and nightmares of the one soldier he couldn't save; Amanda Doster (AMY SCHUMER), haunted by unanswered questions and the loss of a husband just days shy of scheduled leave; and Michael Emory (SCOTT HAZE), who survived a sniper's bullet in the brain to fight his way back to speaking, walking and savoring life.
