This snippet of a story is too generalized and short to be worth watching. Plus, customers should be quite clear that they are paying for less than 15 minutes of video.

This was actually a really great on site review done by 60 mins. However, when the it was done by 60 minutes, I actually thought that the length would be closer to 60 mins. It turned out to be only about 20-25 mins.

What was really good though were the solider's views on what they were doing. I think that they actually really care about what they're doing. You could tell that they were really affected by hurting those they are trying trying to protect. It gave a real glimpse of the day in the life of a special operations solider. Though I still wish it were longer.

Positive: Loved the footage on the training and snippets of missions. The friendly fire incidents, accidental shooting etc. made it very very real. And time was spent in interviewing the soldiers and listening to their thoughts.

Negative: Feels that it was way way too short. Ended "abruptly" and I definitely felt short-changed by the price that i paid.
