Critic Review - Chicago Tribune

A first-rate war movie that presents its subject so horrifyingly well that it doesn't need to probe or preach.

This film was nothing more then an Action film disguised as a real war event.

All this film delivers is blood and bullets with no real story and a political message that is lost 15 mins into the film, which in turn makes you think, why am I watching this rubbish.

The only thing I came away with from this film is an understanding to how the US loses every war they start and how even the best directoers can make bad films.

the story was choppy and the constant moving from one group of solders to the other seems like a poor attempt to make the film one long shoot fest.

This film will appeal to the people who like nothing more then to see blood and guts and don't care about good acting or a good story arc with character development.

If you want a good war film watch Full metal jacket or saving private ryan. If you want a film to pass the time and forget about 10 mins later I would say watch this.
