Don't waste your time
9 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was incredible! Not in the good sense, however. Growing up in the sixties and watching my cowboy heroes shoot their six-gun 15 or 28 times without a reload, I could forgive these M-16's shooting fully automatic for minutes and minutes on end. But as Marine, I can't tolerate an over-aged, fat, Stacy Keach wearing a beret (Marines don't wear berets and are not fat.) as a Marine Corps 4 star General. If all you want are a bunch of explosions, then this may be the movie for you.(notice the obvious pre-built artillery simulator pits dug in the sand on the beach landing) I'll say one thing, though, this Christian Boeving actor is on par with Arnold and can speak English.
