Redacted got very weak reviews (including the final "F" ever handed out, I think, by Entertainment Weekly's Owen Gleiberman before he bailed on EW) and disappeared almost immediately, but yes I suppose if you're going to watch it, watch it as a companion piece with COW. It's pretty short, it has unlikely scenes like soldiers reading and discussing Appointment In Samarra (yeah, I bet lots of dudes in Iraq have read that one), it tries to use multiple POVs and social media to be relevant, it ends about as ham fistedly as possible, and it's not very good.
I know that some people complained about Michael J. Fox as an unlikely guy to end up in a Vietnam movie (he was trying to do more serious stuff between Back To The Future movies and people weren't buying it--his stuff from that period isn't well remembered) but Sean Penn's performance is like a high school student trying to imitate an Olympic weight lifter.
