The Tillman Story
Pat Tillman chose to walk away from a multimillion-dollar football contract and join the military for no other reason than he felt it was the right thing to do. Documented are the facts surrounding the way the military manipulated his tragic death in the line of duty into a propaganda tool, which is totally unfathomable.

Wow ! Conservative or Liberal, politicians are out for themselves. Pat Tillman advocated no falsehoods about his intentions in life. The least the army could have done was respect his family the same way, in regard to his death.

This was actually quite gently presented in comparison to the Wikileaks documentary footage. In those the U.S. military personnel calm and seemingly undisturbed, shooting innocent civilians for really no reason. Lofty perch up there in that pricey helicopter and state-of-the-art weapon. Of course no one on the ground has any gun at all. Makes me ashamed that we are standing there beside them in that war.

Incredible film!! Leaves you shell-shocked. If you love the U.S.A., watch this movie! Should be required viewing for all High Schools.

It was good to hear the story from the familys perspective-a real eye opener. Seems the govt will stop at nothing to protect its image. A worthwhile movie

Terrific doc about a hell of a man. Pat Tillman was a stud! If I can raise my son to be half the man he was, I'll be a genius. Also, I'm so amazed with the integrity and perserverance of this family to make sure the real story is known. I'd say hands down, best doc of 2010! Interesting to me that this didn't get more notice in the awards circuit. Seems pretty fishy that there wasn't even an Oscar nom. Watch it!

This documentary was heartbreaking! The story of Pat Tillman has been told and twisted around so often (by the media, government, etc.). This documentary tells it from the family's point of view and how they feel unequivocally that their son's death was used as a propaganda tool to rally support for two wars. This film will make you angry and outraged. The director did an excellent job in giving voice to Tillman's family.
