Is anyone gonna watch it tonight?
I certainly am. I'm curious about how dramatized they decided to make it, compared to the actual facts. I saw the trailer the last time I went to the
movies, and I would have to say, it does look pretty interesting, considering it has something to do with today's current events. It also has some
actual crips from the war, like the explosions in Baghdad and the IR cameras of Lynch being rescued.
However, why aren't they making a movie about the other POWS? Don't forget about that other female POW, Shoshana Johnson. She was one of the first
POWs, and she probably endured worse treatment than Lynch, so why doesn't she get any recognition?
The real heroes, I would have to say, are the soldiers that rescued her. If you saw Black Hawk Down, Saving Private Ryan, or any of those POW movies,
you can see how difficult and terrifying it can be just to rescue one person. On the battle field, the one thing that you learn to do is to never
leave your fallen comrades behind.
