Hello, Alejandro and welcome to Just Answer.

I'd love to help you, but need a little bit more information.

You saw the movie about a year ago, but what year was it made?

Did you see it in the theater or on TV? Was it a major release or a TV movie?

Can you remember the names of any actors/actresses in the movie and/or their characters?

You said this particular scene takes place at the end of the movie; do you remember the main theme or plot of the movie in general?

What war is he recalling? Vietnam or other?

Thanks very much for all your additional detail.
Cher

I don't remember any actors or names in particular but he was recalling the war on Iraq or Afghanistan he was also in military dress not acu but ASU uniform he was wearing glasses and I believe they call him Carlito at one point and during the flashbacks he was wearing night vision goggles.

Expert:  Cher replied 3 years ago.
Hi again, Alejandro and thanks for your reply with additional information.

Could the movie have been 'Carlito's Way'?

If it's not this one, I'll keep researching for you.

Hello. I don't have the movie in my collection yet to verify the scene you mention, but "Afghanistan" "ex-military" "gang" and "war at night flashback" remember me of Harsh Times with Christian Bale made in 2005:

Hey thanks very much I have already seen harsh times is not harsh times I typed into google the same thing that you wrote and Harsh Times came up it is not the movie I saw I wish I had more info on this movie

Expert:  Cher replied 3 years ago.
Hi again, Alejandro.

No, it doesn't match up with Harsh Times, and I'm still researching for you. Yes, more info would be helpful, but I'm trying my best and hopefully, will be able to find it for you.

I'll be back in touch, soon!

Do you remember some actor that were also in other movies by their role as you don't know names (even very minor roles could help to cross index).

About the gangsters, what was their organization and traffic, what did they do?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

not sure what they where trafficking but the leader was a Black Male the guy was wearing an uniform like this one http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Army_Service_Uniform

Expert:  Cher replied 3 years ago.
Hi again, Alejandro.

Just wanted to let you know I'm still researching this for you.

Just to clarify, the leader of the gangsters was a black male and the ex-army guy (was it army or marines?) was wearing an ASU uniform?

Best regards,
Cher
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I believe so he was in the army and the leader was black male at the end of the movie they where in his house when he took him out along with his gang members.
