after watching , i totally agree ....it is amazing how accurate the movie was in its portrayal of the procedures in `the hole`.
especially when you consider the year it was made. not many other movies of that period were so detailed and accurate.
Actually that era was marked by the openness regarding tech and military things in movies. The producers and directors knew their portrayals in movies
would be critiqued by veterans and buffs of mayhem so they tried harder to get it right. If they did, it was "technically accurate" and sold more
tickets. Directors had "consultants" (they still do) that helped lend realism. A film could go down in ratings if the savvy detected BS.
Nowadays we're way more secretive. They don't show anything anymore except a lot of whiz bang zoom action with bright lights and loud sounds. Theres
nothing left to critique about accuracy in pictures. Boo hoo.
Its okay though, now we have YouTube. I can watch the real thing in a 100 wars around the globe. Real blood too. (I must be nuts)
