Storyline

Four high school football stars enlist in the Marines to serve their country in Iraq. Unfortunately, they don't all return home. The ones that do survive face guilt, problems assimilating back into every day life, and a society that doesn't seem to support them. They face the pressure and the temptation to rejoin their fellow Marines on the battlefield as they struggle to blend into civilian life. This is a story about American heroes, their courage, their pain, their humanity. Written by Peace Arch Entertainment

Absolute tripe!
12 May 2008 | by mattlelonekSee all my reviews

This is quite possibly the worst film i have ever seen, it is nothing more than a badly acted, poorly written mess of sentimental detritus! It seems the whole purpose of the film to give sympathy to the poor chap who quite literally gave an arm and a leg to go to Iraq, and while he does have my sympathy he doesn't have my attention as i was forced to turn off the film after no more than 15 minutes. It was offensive to my eyes in every way shape and form. I wasn't a fan of Jarhead, It was watchable and there was some good acting but I was still waiting to see a good film come out of the conflicts in the middle east. I think I can safely say that after this and a number of other offerings I wont be holding my breath. My advice is to watch jar-head if you want a film in this vein but don't expect to see a platoon or a full metal jacket while the movie industry lacks such basic creativity as to avoid such abject failures as this film.
