Anyone seen this movie? It's a documentary about US soldiers living in Uday's old palace in Baghdad. I thought it did a good job illustrating the life of these soldiers in Iraq (mind you I'm not military and have no idea what its REALLY like so I could be wrong). But it did seem to have some editorial anti-war propaganda in it.

Just curious what other people thought of it.

I saw it a while ago, it was ok. I especially liked seeing one guy play Medal of Honor: Allied Assault on his laptop (thats one of my all time favorite FPS games).

They show it on the military channel from time to time (if you have cable/satellite of course).

My son and I went way out of our way to see it. What an utter waste of time.

It was boring.

Boring, pedantic-was like watching someone masterbate, but less interesting.

I looked all over for a copy, and have not been able to sit through the whole thing.

I hope our enemies, current and potential, watch it. It will make them underestimate our soldiers.

I liked it and I think it made some good points.

1) You go to war with the army you have, a field artillery regiment designed to fight Warsaw Pact troops in open battle instead of conducting dismounted patrols in Iraqi cities.

2) Be suspicious of any foreign nationals, even your translators.
