Goofs

When the squad approaches a suspected vehicle borne IED one soldier asks the other "how do you set off a car bomb?" the other soldier then radios back to the crew they have a car bomb. Standard operating procedure dictates that you do not transmit within 25 meters of a suspected IED because it could detonate it See more »

American Soldiers is totally inaccurate
7 January 2007 | by truthdefenderdepSee all my reviews

American Soldiers is totally inaccurate, and it is obvious that the producers and directors took total creative license, with little or no advice from any person who has served in Iraq, or the military.

The depiction of the downed helo was totally wrong.(when a helo or any other aircraft goes down, all other aircraft in the area is scrambled to protect any surviving crew) Also, the USA military has total air superiority in Iraq, yet no air support was shown.

This movie is preachy, and fake heroic, like a John Wayne WW2 movie. Also, it is totally idiotic to think that USA infantry soldiers would take over a CIA interrogation post(committing a act of treason), and free the insurgent prisoners there. NO soldiers in their right mind would do that.(although the movie is correct in saying that the whole weight of the CIA would come down on the soldiers, and also their families.) Overall, this movie is a complete fabrication, and a joke of a war movie.
