Women Can Be Rangers
17 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie may not be realistic to some reviewers but some folks are just to critical and can't enjoy the professional actions of actors. These people do take pride in their profession contrary to what some folk may think. In today's environment we do have women going into direct combat, albeit in support positions as they drive support trucks in convoy. However, those trucks come under attack by small arms fire or IEDs ( Improvised Explosive Devise). These IEDs kill or wound independently regardless of sex, age or rank.

So lay of the actors in this movie. They are doing there best to give you some entertainment. My son was a ranger and it was difficult training just as any of our secure fighting forces whether it be seals, delta force, or marine re-con. So just enjoy a movie and lay off the actors, the directors, technicians and others it takes to make a movie.
