It's not just about the standardizing of everything in the military.
It's not just about the psych stuff that happens to overtrained, overhyped marines that don't get to do what they're so overtrained for.
It's not just about brotherhood.
It's not just about surreal encounters, useless chores, moments of mental breakdown...
It's about everything imaginable and the vast emptiness that comes with it.

It was good in it's first half, but the second half is too full of situations that are tedious and repetitious. The cast led by Jake Gyllenhaal does good and the cinematography is also fine, but Sam Mendez does not give it the treatment it requires.
