A war-themed variation on Cool Hand Luke, Tigerland is a movie that I enjoyed despite its flaws, primarily because star Colin Farrell has become one of my favorite actors. Although the 16mm cinematography is suitable in the context of the film, the raw photographic quality often feels misused and haphazard. Joel Schumacher's direction leaves something to be desired, and the script promises a lot in the first act of the film but by the conclusion ends up saying very little. It's a confused, structurally absent piece that flaunts some interesting scenes and a variety of compelling performances. Colin Farrell does an excellent job illustrating his character and, at times, even carrying the picture.
