Have you even watched it? You don't "get it" that's all. Would you care to play? Go in the bathroom (if you have one) and look in the mirror.
I'll be waiting, SR.
You are far easier than the movie to understand. Like hunting from a distance? I don't, it's too United States and un-American.
Nick: "If anything happens Mike, you don't - don't leave me over there. You got, you gotta...Just don't leave me. You gotta promise me that,
Generally as an actual war movie i find it over rated as i said that was my opinion of it.
All you got for almost half the movie is the way too bloated out point of friends from a small community looking forward to kicking someass then cut
to a small scene of Robert de niro flaming someone which is like hmmm great 'long' depiction of the war there.
The torture in the camp and the whittling down of the POW's along with the end is the only good part of that movie cause it shows a different aspect
of wars other films rarely show it shows guys who get capturing getting treated like sh*t and getting killed and then how a small community try and
deals with the aftermath.
The movie doesn't make the distinction of whether the war changed them or the tourture roulette changed them like how Mike flips in the cabin or crys
in the hospital and the whole shebang of how Nicky becomes addicted to roulette.
It's like it the movie doesn't know what it wants to be does it want to show you the what the war psycholigically does to someone and his friends
and community or does it just want to show the horrors of an actual war.
