Trivia:
Sam Mendes rehearsed the film with his cast for 4 weeks.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Whenever snipers are shooting at their targets their spotter does a countdown by saying "Fire! Fire! Fire!". The sniper then fires on the third "Fire!" to ensure a well-timed kill. However, in the movie the snipers fire whenever they want after the spotter says the third "Fire!".See more »

[first lines]
Anthony 'Swoff' Swofford:A story: A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands, love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper; his hands remember the rifle.

Extremely powerful and moving War pic. A 'Platoon' for Gen X., 27 October 2005
Author: oypoodles (peaseblossom2000@yahoo.com) from Berkeley, Cali

I saw this movie at a screening at UC Berkeley. Afterward the author of the novel it is based on held a Q&A.

This movie is a bit long, but so are most War films. It does, however, keep your attention the entire times.

This film is not just a War film, it is able to seamlessly mix comedy and drama, with such issues as Mental health and even a bit of ennui.

The characters are fully developed, each and everyone has an interesting story that is covered, briefly but perfectly. You get a broad spectrum of the kinds of men that go to war, what they left behind, and how it effects them when they return.

The cinematography is absolutely gorgeous and Sam Mendes' direction is pitch perfect.

Jakc Gyllenhaal gives an astounding performance, as does Jamie Foxx, but it is Peter Sarsgaard that steals the show, with a heartbreakingly subtle ghost of a performance.

This is definitely a must-see.
