Excellent drama
25 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I thought the film was first class. It's rare for a film to grip me like this, but it did, and not only that, it left me wanting more. You know that feeling a movie has now and again, that feeling like you'd love to know more when it's over, you want to carry on viewing their lives. Well this movie made me want that.

It's not entirely unpredictable, I even drew some comparisons with the original Karate Kid but with marines, but it's a damned good drama without all the fight scenes.

Overall it's a good 90minutes of your time, and if you're not completely soulless, you should enjoy it.
