Very good movie, especially because it is first movie about Iraqi war, filmed only 6 month after war ends. Despite poor critics, 'true story' debates, even PFC Lynch's rescue detail challenges, hey, it is another American action movie. Lot of army stuff, glimpse in the Iraqi soldiers life, which reminds me like overrated 'Black Hawk Down'. This movie is BASED on true story, so any director adjusts story to movie as much as he want (especialy American directors). By the way, even Richard Attenborough's Chaplin (great movie) have same true story mismatching, so what? Movies are movies, if you want true story details, read biographies!
