An uneventful movie showing us 2 hours of an uneventful war.

Biggest waste of ****ing time ever. I would have left 1/2 through but decided to see if it would get any better. WASTE OF TIME AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I mean sure, it showed us how "war" and the army transforms people, but really 2 hours and 2 minutes of this nonsense. FACK

Band of Brothers is the best war film [series] hands down.

I guess if you loved the parts with the nude men running around, and all the male ass you get to see. Nothing beats ripped men, that are naked....

In which case yeah it was amazing..... From a homosexual viewpoint.


No seriously what was so amazing about this movie?


Its not that bad... but its definately NOT AMAZING. There are about 10 different war movies that I can name that easily beat this, infact several of them can be labelled amazing.

To each his own.

The "homosexual viewpoint" is just pathetic. Too bad no one has insightful opinions as to why they disliked this movie.

Insightful??? And what, you saying the movie was amazing is insightful, to who???

at least I said it was an uneventful movie for an uneventful war.

The Gulf war was the most pathetic war ever. Most of the American casualities were from friendly fire. I didn't need to spend 2 hours of life watching marines sit around and play foot ball. I was not excited nor impressed by the whole girlfriend/wife issue that the marines faced with their wives and girlfriends leaving them.

I was not impressed with Jamie Foxx's acting. Seems like he old took the job to hold a replica M16 A2 assualt rifle and dress up in military gear.

I was not impressed by the whole crying scene that takes place when they dont get to sniper shot an officer. OOH boooo hoooo hooo. YOU ARE A ****ING MaN why are you crying for not being able to shoot someone. Hes lucky the marines didn't send him to the Artic for some cold weather traininig. Honestly was he under that much mental anguish for not being able to shoot someone. Further more who cares??? Did this part make you guys realize the marines job is hard?

The boot camp part at the begining. Wow, what a shitty drill instructor. Were you impressed by this?? I sure wasn't. Full MEtal JAcket does a 100000000000 times better job at portraying boot camp at the marine corps. Instead we have this pussy drill instructor trying to act tough.

The part when they get to go on TV and talk to the reporter. WOW, that was 10 minutes of uselessness. No one says anything useful.... I love my country.. Thats great, but I dont want to see a movie about how 4 marines love their country and thats why they joined. Infact I dont think there is a single individual who wouldn't say that. So what, am I suppose to applaud the producer for putting this part in??

So yeah, wow it did a greattttttttt job at showing us the emotions bored marines go through...... Like I said at the begining.. But applauding this movie and calling it amazing well its quite the opposite. This movie is mediocore at best. Amazing movies, move you. They tell an exciting story that doesn't put you to bed. Same with good movies.

I think the reason why the most of you liked this movie to begin with is because a) its a war movie, b) it has the marines running around being all bad ass with camo gear and machine guns.

If you want to see a war movie about a group of men that work together and die together, and the mental effects of the war on the men, then watch the Band of Brothers collection like stated. Thats a real war movie for a very real war.

I know people have differences of opinion.. No shit. But Im telling you how I found it.. AND now Im telling you why I found it to be complete shit and waste of time. If you go and watch it and find it amazing, thats great.. But maybe some of you, that like to spend 2 hours of your life watching an eventful movie will be saved by my post...

Infact its not just 2 hours of your life... its more then that... The time it gets ready, the travel time to the theatre.. It takes me about 3 hours in total to see a 2 hour movie..... 3 hours of my life taken away.
