Some real howlers for Bosnia Vets
12 January 2014 | by TankerCMDSee all my reviews

If you're looking for a semi-factual, realistic account of what on in Bosnia, this isn't it- it's more a typical dark, nihilistic Euro film saying that all men are evil, abandon hope, etc....as the character SGT Holt states in the film, "All men are animals." That pretty much sums it up.

Three particular howlers I found unintentionally hilarious, as a US Army vet with service in Bosnia (SFOR 12): 1) Shortly after the weekend begins, Jacob and Holt are seen driving towards the hotel in Tuzla- on a beautiful, undamaged, blacktopped road. Anyone that has spent any time in Bosnia will tell you that such undamaged, pristine roads don't exist.

2) In one scene the Danish soldiers in their white armored vehicle (It's not a tank), are seen carelessly free riding and joyriding off road; the laughing driver yells, "Hold on!" You don't do that in a land full of unexploded land mines, unless you REALLY want to blow up.

3) Holt and Jacob check in at a hotel in "Tuzla"in 1995, and the building is immaculately clean inside and out, undamaged. Not the way it was in 1995; I served in Bosnia 7 months and literally did not see an undamaged building for the whole time.

The credits give some explanation- this was filmed in Estonia, not Bosnia, and it shows to anybody who has seen the country.

As a Bosnia vet, I recommend Angelina Jolie's "In The Land of Blood and Honey."
