"I had high expectations and I have to say, when I first watched the movie, I felt really let down, for a number of reasons," Webb told ABC News Thursday. "It's hard to capture someone's life in two hours, and I get that, but I felt the film could have been, should have been, a military epic on the scale of a 'Saving Private Ryan.'"
But Webb said when he thought about it further and when the movie started a national conversation about the hardships of American troops in combat and at home, and their portrayal in Hollywood, he came to appreciate the film more. ...
"[The movie version] was just very amateurish," he said. "I'm not saying let's give the world a look at exactly how the SEAL sniper program is, but it's one of the best programs in the world and I thought that [filmmakers should] at least give it that respect that the program produced this guy... You're going to show his training like it's a couple of rednecks plinking at cans in the back of a trailer? That's what it felt like to me."

Personally, if you're going to criticize a film, shouldn't you see it first?
