Generation Kill (mini-series) Reviews
September 13, 2009
I consider this to be a mini series not a movie. It is by far the greatest miniseries I have seen since "Band of Brothers" which I regard as the best miniseries ever, but this is now a close second if not an equal to that great work. This is also the only work that confronts the second Iraq War that I have seen. It is a work that shows the harsh realities and utter futilities of modern urban warfare. It also shows how the marines in Iraq had to operate and the emotional toll that the war had on the marines depicted in this series.

This is... freakin awesome. It goes well with my soon-to-be military movie/tv collection. This is a 7-part hbo series on the invasion of iraq in 2003 and it is how it was back in 2003. Based on the Book Generation Kill by Evan Wright, who rode in a humvee in a company of recon marines.

This was a SUPERB mini-series. HBO did a great job bringing Evan Wright's book about the 1st Recon Marines story to tv.I loved the casting choices, especially for Brad Colbert and Ray Person. Impressive acting by all in the series. I highly recommend it.
