My favorite anti war film. George Clooney, Mark Walberg and Ice Cube are easy to look at.

Great movie. well acted. The action is graphic and very realistic. Darkly humorous. Tells a great story in a stylistic way. Very unique. Not just some dumb war movie.

This movie is a combination of an action movie, a heist film, a war film, and an anti-war film. Right from the start the movie has a different feel to it. This was a fantastic movie with a great cast, and wonderful acting. I highly recommend checking this movie out it is worth watching.

Sgt. Troy Barlow: I heard a lot of bad s**t happened in Kuwait.
Capt. Said: Yes... bad s**t happened... I'm not proud of that. Yes Saddam is very crazy, but then you are crazy for coming here.
