“Hi Zach,

Yes I have seen the movie, I saw it a while ago though. I thought it was very interesting to see the inner workings of the war and I felt this movie really portrayed the true emotions of the soldiers instead of just the cliche war movies I have seen before. I feel this movie actually gave a realistic picture of how the war in Iraq really was/is.

I really would have to watch the movie again to judge how the west is portrayed, but some scenes that really stuck with me were how the soldiers behaved. One was the scene where the got drunk in their cabin, I felt like you could really see the psychological tole that the war is having on these men and how they are not just a figment of war, but human beings with true emotions and problems.”
