i did. i saw before it even came out in theaters, i was in the ghan and our reliable dvd guy got a hold of a good copy. good movie, had almost every detail down of the "life". except being a military guy i tend to pick out the stuff that didnt seem right or according to what i was trained to do. but its a good movie. kinda gives you an idea of the mentality we have when we get home. i personally wanna go back, the wife doesnt want me to.

I watched it and enjoyed it. I don't know how accurate it is, but it kept me entertained.

I'm just sayin' JD....it came out on Bluray yesterday and I picked it up and I watched it. I had been waiting for it to come out on DVD for a long time.

I think you would like it....all of the critics LOVED it, despite it's dismal box office performance . I don't give two hoots about how much money a film makes.

This movie was pretty good, considering all the garbage that Hollywood puts out now. Check out this sniper dual scene.

Thanks, I think visual aids help alot. The Barrett .50 cal might pique some more interest. I'm surprised that there aren't more FTF members excited about this film....but that's just me!

I am looking forward to checking it out. It looked decent in trailers I saw when it was coming out. Just didn't have the time to see it while it was playing.
