I'm sure this movie shows more or less how it looked when US forces
dropped in to say hello in Iraq and Afghanistan. The 30 year old
teenagers in this movie throw out mercilessly sub par dialog like "This
is not their land. This is our back yard and we're going to fight for
it," or "they killed our father, we have to fight or die." I'm sure
that's what they said in Fallujah too when good ol' George W. sent his
invading army to destroy their country. Aaameeerica,
Aaameeerrrrriiiicaa!! God save them all, they do make me laugh and cry
at the same time.
Enough has already been said in previous reviews about the wildly idiotic plot and lazy directing. Rather get the 1984 version. At least it had some heart in it, though the plot was just as ludicrous, playing on the strange fear of communism America has always fostered.
One more thing! Modern movies (this one being no exception) way overuse the lazy technique of compressing together various sorts of character growth sequences into a few minutes. It's very annoying and shows a lack of skill on everyones part.
