Too much swearing, even for a war movie Do Not Watch!

There is way too much swearing, I stopped watching half way through. There are no good messages included. There is also bloody violence. I would not recommend this movie to anybody.

This title has:

Horrible terrorist propaganda

One of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. Makes our soldiers out to be stupid invaders, but the terrorist is a smart “freedom fighter”. HA! Freedom fighters don’t, how did he put it? Oh yea, “skin your bones, and tear out your tongue and staple it to your chest.” They’re nothing but animals.
