      Whoever said the army training was easy never saw this movie, and even if you still say that army training is


      easy, then you must be living a very sheltered life. Go and do it is all I have to say on that regard, then afterwards you can go tell people how easy it was.

      This movie gives us a peek at what army life is like from the beginner phase to actual warfare and everything in between. Basic training is no walk in the park, many people die, many are scarred bythe evens long before they complete the training, other quit due to their lack of heart or stomach for it and the many few that ...


      • actually make it to the end are now realized killers for the army in which they serve.

        Being trained as a killer has its up and downs, but mostly it has its downs, for as a killer, if anyone crosses you in a manner you feel unbecoming, you are of the mental capacity to kill that person without a second thought and it would mean nothing to you to do it as this is what you are trained to do.

        Taking that killer instinct to the front line of battle show how you have progressed in your

        field and if you manage to make it back home alive and in one peace, you are then greeted with the reality that the government doesn’t realy care for their soldiers at all.

        Soldiers are the pawns in a global chess game for control and domination, it is up to you if you wish to serve, but don’t be folled into doing anything that you don’t want to. Getting a mdeal and wearing a uniform isn’t all that its cracked up to be if you’re dead. But this movie shows all that and more for your enjoyment.
