Rough cut screening - very powerful
I saw a rough cut of this movie in Los Angeles. A friend of mine was
involved with post- production and he invited me to a screening. I
didn't know what to expect -- I'd only seen Nick Cannon in Drumline and
thought he was kind of lightweight. Not so in this movie. Basically,
the story follows him for a few days before he's about to be sent of to
Iraq, and in this short time, he falls in love with a girl he's just
The movie is very powerful and heartbreaking but it somehow doesn't
feel depressing. I've seen a few other Iraq war movies, but this one
all takes place in the US, and it's not really a war movie. It's more
like a coming of age film.
The performances were great -- especially the kid who plays Nick
Cannon's best friend -- and the story is gripping as hell. The cut i
saw was terrific and i am really looking forward to seeing the final

I love Nick Cannon acts.
lorenso1960 watch Victory Through Air Power movie
Nick Canon, again is a very good actor he really acted his ass off in this movie,american son..
lorenso1960 watch The Firm movie
american son is a well put together movie, with actors like nick canon how can you go wrong.
Good small movie, examines emotions of being deployed to Iraq.
Before very recently I never heard of Nick Cannon. But he has been on
my personal radar for marrying Mariah Carey recently, and for that I
have great admiration for him. Since she is now 40 and he is still in
his 20s he might be her boy-toy, but I admire him anyway.
Here Nick Cannon is Mike, coming home by bus to his California
neighborhood after completing basic training as a Marine. There he
meets pretty Melonie Diaz as Cristina and they form a quick, unlikely
friendship. Unlikely because people don't usually meet on the
I also enjoyed seeing Chi McBride of "Boston Public" TV fame, as Mike's
dad, Eddie. And Tom Sizemore as Mike's step-dad, Dale.
Mike has 4 days, 96 hours, to enjoy the Thanksgiving holidays with
family and friends, and new girlfriend, before going where no young man
wants to go. Iraq is today what Viet Nam was to us in the 1960s.
Good, small movie, probably shot on a small budget. I came away
impressed with Nick Cannon as an actor. I look forward to seeing him in
