"Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk" is not a war movie in the traditional sense.It's not the movie one might peg to usher in an entirely new way of experiencing images on the big screen – its purportedly "hyper-real" 120 frames per second.The film draws you in quickly and consistently upends expectations about where it's going. The men of Bravo Squad, for instance, are introduced as a rowdy group, talking about strip clubs and drinking and which big Hollywood star is interested in a film adaptation of their story – Matt Damon? Instead of feeling disjointed, it moves along smoothly, from a funny and poignant new conference to a grotesquely lavish buffet with team owner Norm Oglesby (Steve Martin) and his wealthy peers.The film isn't perfect, and certainly not Lee's strongest – you can almost feel certain sequences being rushed due to complications with this technology.
