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 something worthwhile in it, but I never made it that far, so who knows?
