The film is a great movie in my opinion, for there’s a lot of action and heartfelt scenes. The part where Goose died from the impact of the plane was a real heartbreaker. I imagined myself in that situation and I almost cried because I imagined Goose as my best friend. I felt so bad for the wife of Goose. He had the best life a married man could’ve asked for. He had a loving wife, a kid, and the best friend he could’ve asked for. The movie overall was really nice. I’d give it a 4 out 5 stars because some parts of the movie were going a bit too fast, and it had some scenes that didn’t relate to the plot at all.
