A Fake
2 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

I found this documentary unconvincing in the extreme. The participants including Bear Gylls were too fresh when interviewed and showed no signs of the alleged brutal treatments meted out. What we saw was a series of shots before middle and after but I wonder where the rest of the middle went. Notable also that Bear Gylls finished each of the tasks on time and despite allegedly not having slept or eaten in days was able to give clear eyed interviews with no shortness of breath. This was a caricature of foreign legion training. There was the walkout on day one. The n there was the fake back injury. All of it was choreographed to mimic the real thing happening in the legion. The constant references to finding inner reserves of strength from participants who were obviously faking was stomach churning. I am not fooled.
