This is one of the best movies about Marine Corps Boot Camp ever made, and without a doubt, the most real. All of the other documentaries about recruit training are the nicer side of the experience, with little or no hard core training and atmosphere. This movie shows you exactly what every Marine has experienced, and what all future Marines have to look forward to. Personally, I enjoyed the raw and uncut footage of the recruits and drill instructors in their daily game. It really brought back a ton of memories for me, and it allows me to show my friends and family what it's really like. The movie was filmed at MCRD San Diego, but it is nearly identical to what I experienced at Parris Island in January of 1998. This is a must own for Marines and future Marines everywhere. It will give you an opportunity to prepare for what you will go through, or go back to what you experienced.
