L.A.™'s rating of the film Born on the Fourth of July

Tom Cruise completely immerses himself in this amazing story that won Oliver Stone his very deserving second Oscar. A hard and brutal look at the horrors of war and the aftermaths of the lives that must go on. Stone and Cruise leave a lasting image of courage and unflinching will to get back up once you have been beaten. An amazing true story of a true American patriot.
