Follow along as John Paul and Wayne go on a road to the Vietnam wall in the movie Faith of Our Fathers. A story of two guys searching to understand their father’s and their time in war.
I didn’t know where to start with my review on this movie. I watched it a number of times; but it just did not pull me in. There were goods parts of the movie don’t get me wrong. I can normally watch a movie and write out my thoughts on what I think, feelings the movie gave me. But this one, not so much. That does not mean you will get the same reaction, this movie may be better for you then me. I would have to give this one 3 out of 5 stars.

John Paul and Wayne are two young men in search of their fathers. Problem is… their fathers have been dead for 25 years. Eddie and Steven are two young men in search of their sons…whom they’ve never met. In 1969, Eddie and Steven are with their squad deep in the jungle of Vietnam on a five-day mission to retrieve fallen comrades. They write letters to their wives, often mentioning their love for their sons, one, who is an infant and one yet to be born. In 1994, John Paul and Wayne go on a five day road trip to the Vietnam Wall in Washington DC to see their fathers’ names. Along the way, reading those letters, they begin to get an understanding of who their fathers were and how they died. Trials and mishaps, both funny and sad, complicate the road trip for the boys. The horrors of war and the testing of faith manifest themselves for the young men in Vietnam. Ultimately, in parallel stories – 25 years apart – the fathers and sons are bound together forever.
