Take your pick on who are the good guys and who are the bad.
11 November 2003 | by yenloSee all my reviews

I came away from this film the same way as I do when I watch a Second World War film or documentary about the war on the Eastern front in which the Germans are fighting the Russians. The Germans were invaders and were ruthless yet the Russians were equally as bad and they were just defending their homeland against an aggressive invader so just let them all fight and kill each other (which they pretty much did). In viewing this I could not find myself cheering for the U.S. Troops or feeling sorry for them when they came under attack from the Iraqis. It makes no difference if the U.S. said that what they were doing was right and just and were there as liberators (The Germans said the same thing) . The U.S. waged an aggressive unprovoked war under what could very well be false pretenses. Additionally as the mess in Iraq continues it was hard to really enjoy the film. Have we won? Have we lost? It's way to early to say and it was way to early to make a picture about this. Much of what really happened and took place may not be known for some time and when the full story finally does come out as they all eventually do when it comes to war stories it may make this picture seem hypocritical, foolish and totally phony. If you want to see another film about a controversial U.S. war that was made while the real war was still being waged then check out John Wayne in The Green Berets.
