I didn't see it but I guess it sucked since I see no mention of it on this forum?

Realistic, but not much combat action.

Didnt like it. Made us Marines all look like a bunch of sex starved deviants. Acurate portrayl of the fuck fuck games and downtime of deployment. The book was better than the movie, but it still wasnt worth the time to read it.

Now, is this accurate, yes it is.
Is this the stuff great movies are made of? I say no.



Pretty much sums it up.

It can be factual, but for what practical purpose those facts needed to be portrayed in a movie - i honestly do not know.

If you are into watching movies to be entertained .... then skip this one.

Since when aren't they... and any other male that age... but particularly the ones stuck out in the desert of another country?

When I was deployed I had more shots fired from my mule than my weapon.

I haven't seen it, but I can tell you that is not accurate. After 8 months in the desert, it takes about 45 seconds.
