Critic Consensus: Generation Kill plunges the viewer into war with a visceral force that's still somehow reined in by masterful storytelling and a strong command of period details.

A raucous, raunchy and utterly loving account of life at the bottom of the military food chain.
This is all a stark, searing contrast to the overall majesty of HBO's previous Band of Brothers... There's nothing picturesque about Generation Kill.
The series conveys tweaked anxiety, stifling alienation, and, not entirely on purpose, elaborate boredom.
Vivid storytelling, superb acting and a frank approach make this a TV landmark.
A show that throws you into the deep end of the pool, and after some thrashing around, you discover that you can swim.
