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

“A lo largo de la historia siempre han habido diversos contextos bélicos que han inspirado numerosas cantidades de obras ya sea romantizando bandos según su conveniencia o criticando los aspectos de la guerra que más sonaban en los corazones de la población, y acá tenemos ese mismo caso pero llevado a la actualidad.

Jarhead toma la visión crítica de la guerra moderna, agarrando el contexto de la guerra del Golfo de la mano de un director que, seré sincero, nunca me cautivó, pero que al menos no exagera en la presentación del escenario de esta película.

La historia comienza presentando a Anthony Swofford, un joven que se sumó al servicio militar al no tener realmente muchas cosas de qué enorgullecerse en la vida y que, en el ejército, ve la oportunidad de de” read more

"The realities of being a sniper during the Gulf War, realistic and well acted. Due to the principle of the film being to show that many of these men are specially trained and bread to kill and then in fact see no action means that the film does feature next ot know battles, so be prepared if you want to check it out.

Juancho posted a review 1 year, 4 months ago

“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."
