      Based on a book by Anthony Swofford, this tells the story of his experience in the Saudi Arabian desert and battles in Kuwait while serving time with the United States armed forces.

      Showing the early days from training, stright to the combat zone and everything in between. His story is that of a trained killer who is basically forced along with so many other marines, to take up arms ...


      • in the middle east where fighting has been their bead and butter since the dawn of time. How can you bring war to the doorsteps of those who are born to war, that is the question I keep asking and I cannot get a straight answer to this day.

        Anyway, back to the book that spawned the movie. This movie might seem abit dull and boring at times, but then again, what movie isn’t.

        This one is based on the training leading up to war and the actual or depicted actual events that took place as seen through the eyes of one of their very own soldiers.

        Realistic and gripping with tell tale signs of what rings true in the media even to this very day. A story well worth the telling and a movie that brings to life the reality of warfare currently in certain parts of the world.
