Chris Pratt has shown yet again that he is not afraid to speak out in support of America’s men and women in uniform, something that he has done many times in the past.
He has also never been afraid to voice his political stance or to fight back against the woke critics that attack Hollywood actors who speak out against leftist agendas.
Last weekend, Pratt joined back up with the cast of his hit show “The Terminal List” to post a Twitter video thanking all who have served our great country.
For your sacrifice, we thank you. Today and every day. #VeteransDay pic.twitter.com/DzmcpH6Oik

Hey, I’m Chris Pratt. I play James Reece in The Terminal List. I want to take a moment to appreciate our armed forces today. Thank you so much for your service. Thank you for keeping us safe. God bless you.
This heartfelt expression of gratitude was made by lines from Pratt and his co-stars, Christina Vidal, Taylor Kitsch, and Tyner Rushing.
“The Terminal List” was an unabashed ode to the Navy SEALS, where Pratt’s character fought against corrupt politicians and mega-corporations to bring justice to those who brought harm to himself and his men in the Middle East.
Audiences loved the show for being an action thriller with a strong and determined main character who was set to right the wrongs that were dealt to him in his past.
Critics, on the other hand, were less than thrilled with the show.
Many thought that the show was too white in its casting, and others moaned that the show was too macho and focused too much on fighting when it could have been tackling social justice issues.
You can probably imagine what many of today’s top critics would say about a series with a straight white male starring alongside other presumably straight white people.
They couldn’t stand it.
They also couldn’t stand the show was wildly successful following its release on Amazon Prime Video.
The current disparity between audience reviews and reviews from critics is downright absurd. In fact, I am chuckling to myself as I write this, as I think about how out of touch these critics must be.
The scoring average from all critics on Rotten Tomatoes gave “The Terminal List” a 39%.
The audience score? 95%!
The critics are ridiculously out of touch and I bet they are seething at the mere mention of Chris Pratt’s name appearing in this article.
Pratt, obviously, doesn’t care what the critics have to say. He cares what the audience thinks.
“The Terminal List” went back to the roots of military television shows.
It is gritty. It is filled with gore. It even stays away from romance after the characters are introduced. It is a true military action drama, and it is completely unapologetic about what it is.
That is why audiences love it, and that is why critics hate it.
That is also why this message from the cast of the show meant so much this Veteran’s Day, Because Pratt and his co-stars are not ashamed, in the slightest, about their love and admiration for America’s soldiers.
