But I loved it. Intelligent writing, talented cast, engaging and thought-provoking story well executed. A good mix of action, adventure, comedy and drama. I could have done without the internal views of a bullet-pierced body, but now that I have the DVD, I know when it's coming and don't have to look.
Good commentary by David O. Russell.
even though this movie is somewhat old, the plot and story line was an excellent depiction of this skirmish. the characters were very good, but it was a little gory. what can be said about george clooney and mark wahlberg that has not been already said...they are just excellent actors in all of their characters in the movies. this one is no exception. an excellent movie.
I had seen this film several times prior to purchasing it. I was pretty young during Desert Storm, and it was too new to be taught in school, so a lot of aspects were new to me with this. I can not attest to any of these plot facts being true, but I am sure that some aspects of it are based on real scenarios and settings that soldiers would have faced. The precedence of stealing the Kuwaiti bullion and it being a fact, is also unknown to me. What I do know for sure, is this is a great, great film. The roles that each of these gentlemen play, is done remarkably well. I am a big time George Clooney fan, and this was an ultimate must purchase for me. Seeing him in such a commanding role and taking charge is certainly nice. The plot of the movie leaves you on the edge of you seat, heart-warmed, saddened, questioning, and blown away, all at once. I say that because of the way it portrays such a culturally significant thing. Like I said before, I can not attest to the accuracy of these facts, but it certainly makes you think about the way things are and the way they have been handled in the past! This is definitely a MUST SEE!
A no holds barred look at the effects of war from all points of view, not just the American's. I saw the enemies portrayed as real people, not just mindless barbarians; which is rare to see in movies these days. It turns out the Americans wanted to steal the gold because they needed it, not just because they wanted it. It tried to add the all-important comic relief, which was successful most of the times, but there were a few goofy scenes. The comedy is needed in a movie this hard core. I was blown away by the cinematography and the editing, all the action sequences from the fast paced to the slow motion were blended in perfectly. I have been left with quite a few scenes stuck in my mind. And I am very happy I was finally talked into seeing it. It is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time, and it's next on my list of DVD's to buy. If there are any more people who are not watching it because it might offend them, give it a try, you won't be disappointed!
