    i definitely liked this movie over hurt locker… hurt locker got an incredible amt of hype following it (dunno why).

    im not sayin hurt locker wasnt good.. im just comparing the acting (overall of all the actors involved); screenplay, cinematography and basic plot…; and upon comparison i’d def say this one was better!

    sam mendes is one mother****in GENIUS~!

    all those who agree say HUAAA!!

    … I have seen involving conflict in the desert.

    I watched The Hurt Locker recently. A solid film, but it really didn’t do it for me like Jarhead did.

    Contrary to popular belief, it is impossible to overdose on marijuana… though many have tried.

    Everyone keeps saying that only a small percentage of Marines act like the ones portrayed in this film. Remember, in the beginning, the man at the desk puts Swafford in the "retard" platoon. They were all supposed to be a bunch of good-for-nothing dumbies. They were misfits, not like the others. This is CLEARLY stated.

    They all agree this is the stupidest most unrealistic movie about the military ever made and that true marines do not act like that, and the reason these guys just partied and acted like isiots was cause they where the dumbasses of the military station in the infantry for dropouts.

    OKAY IDIOTS, READ CAREFULLY.

    THIS MOVIE IS NOT BASED ON ANYTHING REAL. ITS PURE FANTASY BASED ON THE REAL EVENT OF DESERT SHIELD/STORM.

    NO MATTER WHAT THE AUTHOR OF THE BOOK CLAIMS, ITS BULLSNOT.

    1- Stop being STUPID. Why are you freaks arguing about "who is better Army /Marines"? What kind of stupid nonsense is that? It only has logic if you are in the 8th grade.

    2- We did not act like this while serving in the Gulf. Marines, while having a nasty sense of humor, dont act like this. Its just not realistic. I think its pretty safe to say that our Marines dont act like that NOW either.

    3- Swofford LIED. He has been proven a liar. Things in this book/film that he claimed to have happened, NEVER HAPPENED AT ALL. The WAY he claims certain thbings happened, NEVER HAPPENED in that way.

    A PARTY in the desert when the cease fire was called? BULLSNOT.

    A Marine playing with a dead body in that manner? COME ON. We saw ALOT of crispy and mushy bodies. We didnt play with them.

    The Deer Hunter video that was actually a guys wife getting nailed by another guy? MY OLD MAN SAID HE HEARD THAT STORY WHEN HE WAS IN THE NAVY. Thats an OLD one. I heard it BEFORE we even deployed to the Gulf.

    4- NO IDIOTS…this is far from a case of "he saw things different when he was over there". Its just not real. NOT how things worked. NOT how things happened.

    5- There were websites made by guys that served directly WITH Swofford and guys that served in his unit that explain how full of garbage the idiot was. I actually went to boot camp with one of the guys that had one of those websites a couple years back. Swofford, for those that knew him, was pretty much a punk.

    DO NOT BUY INTO THIS GARBAGE.

    I’m very shocked at the general dislike for this movie and so few posts here. I thought this was an excellent movie with a great soundtrack as well. I took my Mum to see it, who I thought had a decent appreciation for good films, but she couldn’t wait for it to finish. It wasn’t really a masterpiece but I thought it was an above average flick. And I don’t even like war movies in general

    The monster that is Kanye West. If you remember correctly his break out song "Jesus Walks" was heavily featured in the promotion of this film and was also in the movie itself. I can’t help but wonder would he be as big as he is if it wasn’t for this movie???

    Did you see that scene where Swofford was screaming at that one guy while holding an M16 to his head?! Terrifying! Absolutely terrifying!

    They all quit and went back to their normal lives? and if so how long did they spend on that mission?

    Was he meant to just be a complete psychopath or what? There are so many little hints throughout the movie that he is *beep* crazy.

    It’s no wonder why lots of military men have no respect for women or why they rape women while at war….drill instructors constantly humiliate and demean women while training these men….yup…go usa…

    Excuse me, do Men in the military really act like this?

    Ripping off their clothes and dry hump each other butt naked in the end zone.

    Did they really need to put that part in the movie?

    Forth, and fear no darkness!

    But I loved it! I put it second to American Beauty as Mendes’ best films! Everytime it’s on tv I get sucked right in to the story of Anthony Swofford. While all my friends say they fell asleep because there was no action. Incredibly underrated film.

    btw how do you add a sig?

    I thought Jarhead was great, but what I don’t get is how their films of choice were movies like Apocalypse Now and Deer Hunter, apparently to get them ‘pumped up’ for war.

    Have they ever seen those films?! If there’s 2 movies that’ll make you NEVER want to go to war it’s those 2.

    I can’t imagine them sitting through the 3 hours of Apocalypse Now and as it fades out with Martin Sheen whispering ‘The Horror…The Horror…’ The Marines are going ‘*beep* YEAH LETS GO KILL IRAQIS’.

    It just doesn’t make much sense to me, unless they were so ignorant not to realise those films were ANTI-war…

    A marine killed in training during an exercise with live ammo?

    Make awkward sexual advances, not war.
