Underwhelming and predictable, I couldn't feel any emotional connection with the characters so had a hard time caring what happened to them.

Well-acted, but there seems to be a disconnect between the profound point it thinks it is making and the basic observation it ends up making.
June 18, 2014
Decent movie. Nothing really ever happens. Lacks anything that will be memorable

A watchable but eventually unclimactic view of a marines time in the gulf war.

na vojensky film z mojej strany velke sklamanie. od takehoto filmu ocakavam akciu, ano chcelo to byt asik nieco umelecke alebo ako to pomenovat, no v tomto segmente nevidim na to priestor a ani dvovd, kedze predpokladam ze od skutocnej reality to ma aj tak dost daleko z odretymi usami 2/5

Sends a very good message, possibly esoteric only to those who served : not everybody sees action, and life as an infantryman sucks.

If you want a dramatized action-packed war experience, I suggest watching the Terminator series or playing Call of Duty.

Jarhead obviously tries to be a contemporary equivalent to Full Metal Jacket, which was undoubtedly a great film. While I do admire the performances, it's not as subtle as the masterpiece it tries to emulate, and seems to try and depict characters rather than real people, especially during that drunken party scene. To be fair, there is some real drama and personality, and it's still an enjoyable film, but I feel that the writers were trying too hard to follow the high standards set by previous war films.

un film de guerre assez intéressant sur les Marines.

Jarhead - B?rnyakúak újranézve. Nem ez lesz a kedvenc Mendes filmem az egyszer biztos. Amerikai szépség és A kárhozat útja is sokkal, de sokkal jobb film ennél. A Skyfall meg teljesen más kategória, így azt nem is hozom ide. Viszont ami nagyon bejött az a fényképezés az utolsó fél órában. Azok a fények ahogy a lángoló kutak megvilágításában mennek a sivatagban valami eszméletlen szépen néztek ki.
Aki még nem látta egy megnézésnek mindenképp jó, kicsit más megvilágításba helyezi a dolgokat, de túl sokat se kell t?le várni, nem sok olyan van, amit más háborús filmek esetében ne láttunk volna már.

Jarhead is an unoriginal movie experience that is surprisingly fun to go through.
October 5, 2013
One of the most entertaining and captivating war movies I've ever seen. It successfully combines lightheartedness with war drama and features one of the best performances I've seen from Jake Gyllenhal and Lucas Black.
January 16, 2014
Much better than these reviews said.

Jarhead may be the first post-modern war film, it's a deconstruction of the war movie itself occasionally, the way it comments on the allure that films like Apocalypse Now and the Dear Hunter have to impressionable, and stupid, young bloodlusting men, it's about the post war movie culture, as well as being a war movie with no war in it. It looks at what it is to turn a young man into a weapon and how damaging that can be when the weapon cant unleash himself, first in the gulf war, where sniper Anthony Swafford (a ferocious Jake Gylenhaal) are so starved of battle, they begin to unravel, then later when they come back to the real world and have seemingly no relation to it anymore, no purpose, no connection. It's an anti military film really, a hym to all the lost soldiers out there in everyday life, re-wired by their government and left damaged mentally or physically to try to pick up their own pieces of themselves. It's also a searing, very funny black comedy/satire and the most original film in it's genre since Coppela's feverish masterpiece.

A personal favorite of mine.
March 22, 2010
The scene with American troops arriving to Kuwait via commercial airliners is one of my favorites in film.
November 29, 2013
I usually like movies with Gyllenhaal and also enjoy Sam Mendes' movies, but this one was a little boring. Basically tells one marines story in the Gulf War, which is basically sitting around doing dumb college-aged antics. Peter Sarsgaard is great as the spotter for Gyllenhaal, but there is almost nothing that happens in this movie. I really wanted to like it, but it never really amounts to much.
November 23, 2013
This was a movie about one man's struggle with boredom and frustration during the Gulf War. While well made, I am not sure I can say that it was entertaining.
November 23, 2013
O quotidiano năo só de um mas vários U.S marines no contexto da primeira Guerra do Golfo nos anos 90. Em muitos aspectos, Jarhead faz lembrar filmes como "Full Metal Jacket", especialmente na fase da recruta. Apesar do filme ser parado e năo haver nenhum clímax épico, Sam Mendes volta a provar que consegue fazer bons filmes pela simplicidade de uma boa história que se desenvolve ao longo dos 120 minutos de rodagem.
80% :D

This is a fucking masterpiece. Proof why you can never trust critics and word of mouth.

This generation's Apocalypse Now? Embodies a consciousness; "Every war is different. Every war is the same."
