Royal Marine "machine" Commandos
9 December 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The hardest military training on Earth, 32 weeks with the Royal Marine Commandos. Where just making it as an original is a huge task, back trooped recruits or medical discharges make for great viewing, as Chris Terrill drags us along for the ride.

This Documentary gives a new meaning for the term "elite" and makes you want to go jogging or push yourself in the gym, thinking if you could keep up with these machines. After passing out they head straight to Afghanistan under fire on the front lines. You'll question if your making a difference in your civilian job after watching the camaraderie and bonding with these lads.
