Cherry, a movie starring Tom Holland as an Iraq war veteran who degenerates into robbing banks, is now available to watch on the Apple TV+.

Apple’s preview for the movie, which it paid more than $40 million to acquire the rights to, reads as follows:

“Cherry (Tom Holland) drifts from college dropout to army medic in Iraq — anchored only by his one true love, Emily (Ciara Bravo). But after returning from the war with PTSD, his life spirals into drugs and crime as he struggles to find his place in the world.”

The movie is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, who are hot off the heels of Avengers: Endgame, the highest-grossing movie in history. However, early critical reviews of Cherry have not exactly been kind. Cult of Mac reviewer Scout Tafoya labeled it a movie with “no style, no ideology, no ideas and no ambition.”

Other reviews haven’t been much nicer. On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, Cherry currently has a critical score of 40% based on 142 reviews. The audience score is slightly higher at 77%.
