Read about 40% of the book.
Then I had to stop to prevent myself from committing suicide.

There is no way I’m going to see the movie.

If it's from the guy who made American Beauty, it's probably gonna suck and will probably piss off soldiers in general and the USMC in particular.

Visuals look pretty nice, but you really dont get a feel for what the movie is about.. If anything.

Well let's see. The guy they got playing General Boomer or whoever that high ranking Marine was in the trailer is the same Hollywood actor who portrayed a retired Marine Colonel as a closeted homosexual in American Beauty.

Doesn't take much to figure this one out. I won't be seeing it. Reading what I did of the book was mistake enough.

I think a lot of people may be unpleasantly surprised coming out of this movie.

Fellow Marines know when it is B.S. and when it is real.

I really dont care. I wont support it with my money as the book was a big POS and did nothing short of insult the Marine Corp the Military as a whole.

Have you read the book?
If not I suggest trying ot before seeing the movie. Supporting the movie after reading it may not seem like a such a good idea.

That's what I mean, man. You don't get a sense of what the book's really about from that trailer. So I think a lot of pro-military type guys who want to see a war movie will instead see the grim, nihilistic picture of the Marines Swofford depicted in his book, and feel they were baited-and-switched.

Negative, but from the review it sounds like it has no Head Call properties.

Rap music sucks, so I will never watch it.

So, for those of you who have read the book, what is it about? Can you give me a short synopsis please? If you don't want to put any spoilers here, tehn IM me the storyline.

Same here. I was too pissed off to finish it. I took it back to the library the next day, and (I worked at a bookstore at the time) persuaded others to NOT buy it.

ETA: When are they gonna do a bio-pic about Chesty Puller? Or have I missed that?
