Lacking action, but an absorbing war drama

"The Bible says "Thou shalt not kill." But hear this: FUCK THAT SHIT!"

Jarhead is the newest directorial feature from much-admired UK-born director Sam Mendes (a man who has helmed a number of outstandingly successful movies including American Beauty and Road to Perdition): this is an absorbing film regarding the dramas of war. Mendes' intricately made film is set in the harsh deser... read more

Gave up half way through.

Okay, I admit, I got bored half way through this. It was grueling, de-humanising, switching between the terribly bad and the terribly boring experiences that the marines face. It's a testiment to the soilders and what they went through. This doesn't make it entertaining viewing, however.

The trouble is, I've already seen Full Metal Jacket. So what's new? Maybe the ending had so... read more

Sam Mendes has made a precious movie about the war in Iraq showing the side that nobody had curiosity to deepen and that had everything be tedious and boring. The film has an absurd psychological strength, makes us think of as human enough to extremes when it comes to war, how the values change significantly and the life that never makes it all erased. Great movie and worth seeing.

A Deep Study into Marines at War.

“This is one of my favorite war movies, oddly enough, it had no war, but it had everything you see in a war movie except the action, instead, it was a deep study into characters and it was written by a former marine, a movie that cuts the conventional Hollywood bullshit and show you the real side of 'war'.

Directed by Sam Mendes, the guy who brings suburban family movies that either hit or miss, this movie is very surprising coming from the same guy, it's a story about the marines in 'gulf war' or the 'Persian Gulf War', in which after Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait, and was building up to attack Saudi Arabia, a coalition forces from 34 nations led by the United States was formed against Iraq condemning it's invasion, so the U.S sends it's marines to the Iraqi Side of the Arabian D” read more

“Jarhead is a decent war movie but it tries to force the psychological apsect of soldiers being in war down your throat to a point were the film gets boring. The movie has a likeable cast with Jake Gyllenhaal, Jamie Foxx, Peter Sarsgaard, Lucas Black, Evan Jones, Chris Cooper all of them did solid performances and if it wasnt for them acting well together this film would be completely unwatchable. There is little no action in the film which makes for a boring war movie becuase you need a nice flow of the psychological aspect of war and action to keep the viewer entertained like what "Apocalypse Now" and "Platoon" did. It seems for the most part that Sam Mendes's movies are average besides "American Beauty" at least thats what i think im sure others would disagree. This is not a war film id ” read more

"Katsottu: 25.1.2014 2nd Watch, TV (Sub) Sam Mendesin (American Beauty, Skyfall) ohjaamassa sotaelokuvassa nuori Anthony Swafford (Jake Gyllenhaal) värväytyy merijalkaväkeen ja hän saa tarkka-ampujan koulutuksen. Swaff joutuu myös Irakin sotaan, mutta se osoittautuu tylsäksi odotteluksi. Elokuva kuitenkin pysyy aika mielenkiintoisena ja soundtrack oli hyvä. Muissa rooleissa nähdään Peter Sarsgaard (Flightplan) ja Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained). Kersantti (Jamie Foxx) ja Swaff (Jake Gy"

" Based on former Marine Anthony Swofford's best-selling 2003 book about his pre-Desert Storm experiences in Saudi Arabia and about his experiences fighting in Kuwait. I found this a really good movie, it's interesting to see the life of American Soldiers in the Middle East. "
