Pretty good flick. Coming from a Special Operations standpoint though, I never understood why a squad of men waged war against a battalion of rebels. Lol. Never happen in real life. Keep it close to realistic, ya know?

So you dont think it was at all realistic? Their tactics, logic, weapons. Etc.

Nope. I don't. No way on God's green earth a few SEALs would 1) Redirect from their primary mission because some dumb woman influenced them by emotions. 2) Trek way off course or stop to fight guerrillas and take the chance of losing their own. 3) Decisively engage a battalion of men with what small arms they have knowing they were heavily outnumbered and outgunned.

SEALs are really good, but not that good. Lol

But yeah, it wasabi entertaining movie and I'd watch it again

I can't handle war movies. They make me cry. I would love to watch "Saving Private Ryan" but I know that I can't. The only war movies I've seen were "Platoon" and "Born on the 4th of July".
