Movie Review: Courage Under Fire This movie takes place after the Gulf war. Denzel Washington plays an officer in charge of a tank brigade during the war. The unit he commands is involved in a friendly fire accident that kills one of his own men. After the war he tries to take responsibility for his part in the accident, but his superiors won't allow him to. He is assigned to investigate a nomination for the first women considered for the Congressional Medal of Honor for combat. He seems to be having a lot of problems readjusting to family life after the war. There are many subplots in this movie. I really enjoyed the movie and would recommend it to my friends. There are many social implications in this movie, the first one that comes to mind is the way the military covered up the friendly fire accident. I don't want to sound like an alarmist, but I'm sure most people feel that the government is not completely forthcoming in this type of information. Next there is the issue of the medal being awarded to a woman for the first time. I was in the military and to me gender has no bearing on bravery or self sacrifice. If a women earned a medal through their actions, then whether they are the first or the hundredth shouldn't matter. Also in the movie Denzel Washington's character seems to have developed drinking problems and other family problems due to his guilt. Whether or not he is actually guilty of anything or not he is consumed by his guilt and states more than once that he just wants to get this investigation right. It is almost as if he feels he can get rid of his guilt by handling this properly. His character is not really guilty of anything in the accident, although as commander he is responsible. In my mind he actually saved a lot of lives by taking charge and making everyone turn on their lights for identification.
