I have seen a lot of movies. They vary from good, bad, made by Martin Scorsese, or Uwe Boll. But, this movie tops my favorites list. It's fantastic how Kathryn Bigelow joins forces with Mark Boal, and together they made this phenomenal project that is completely overlooked by everyone. I mean everyone forgets this movie because they don't like complex storytelling. This movie is more than complex. It's realistic. The action is realistic. There's only 2 or 3 slow-mo shots, there are a few explosions, and there's no guns-a-blazing. This movie portrays the army in the most respectful way.
