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

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 ... 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

“En su momento, Jarhead fue recibida sin entusiasmo por la crítica y el publico debido a su aparente similitud con obras como "Full Metal Jacket o "Platoon". Al igual que la primera, esta película se centra en la explorar la psicología del soldado promedio y sus experiencias en el campo, mostrando diferentes perspectivas sobre sus conflictos. Para el caso, no porque un concepto no sea "nuevo" no significa que no se pueda explorar de manera interesante, cosa que este film demuestra.

Lo que hace a Jarhead destacar es el cómo usa estas ideas en el contexto de la guerra moderna (en este caso, la guerra del Golfo), y como llegan a afectar el carácter de los soldados, siendo el desarrollo de estos el foco principal.

Sus evoluciones se dan de forma natural, mientras se v” read more

"30/9/17 Sam Mendes' film version of the memoirs of a marine sent to the Gulf for the first war. Follows familiar new recruit war films as Jake Gyllenhaal is picked upon by his drill sergeant, bullied by his fellow troop members until they end up in the middle of a desert waiting for the war to come to them. Mildly interesting but apart from Roger Deakins' excellent cinematography, this is nothing new."
