Movie Info

In BATTLE SCARS, Luke Stephens (Zane Holtz, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower") shows up on his brother Nicky's (Ryan Eggold, "The Blacklist") doorstep after a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Suffering from both Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (P.T.S.D.) and physical wounds that are unseen yet devastating, Luke wants nothing more than to forget the war, but his veteran father (David James Elliott, 'Trumbo") won't let him. Then, at a local strip club run by a ruthless killer, Luke crosses paths with Michelle (Heather McComb, "Ray Donovan"), who leads him into a violent world every bit as dangerous as the brutality Luke so desperately tried to leave behind in The Middle East. BATTLE SCARS examines the war experience as well as the wrenching change many veterans face upon returning home.

Critic Reviews for Battle Scars

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

Battle Scars is neither sensitive nor gripping enough to be taken seriously.

July 17, 2017 | Full Review…

Without the PTSD, Battle Scars is a routine thriller, with some engaging performances and decent pacing. But, including PTSD feels exploitative and dramatically inert.

Don't even think about laughing, you bad person.

July 13, 2017 | Full Review…

Battle Scars tells two stories concurrently. One is really good, the other incredibly weak. The problem is that the second story continually intrudes upon the first one.

July 13, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Has more to offer viewers than the average PTSD investigation, but Buday doesn't trust the harrowing simplicity of shattered men, electing to venture into predictability just to make sure he can find an ending.

July 12, 2017 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…

The result is a film weighed down by its own efforts to be meaningful.
