Really realistic

I come from a military background and have studied many wars. This is a very well represented film. The realist executions were well done. Everything was well represented. I would recommend this for everyone, there are to many young people who do not know what are men went through.

This should have got the academy award!

This was a great movie, and a true story. It is cinematically a true work of art. Because it was patriotic and not full of obscenties, the critics panned it. It is excellent. This should have got movie of the year. Go figure!
