The movie is tough. Because you have a moral center that is far off. And it's far off because you don't actually seem to have someone to really root for. Usually you could say that you are for the children, because of their innocence, lack of being judgemental (speaking the truth and directly). But in this case, the youth (or little people) take the whole thing to a whole different level. We knew kids can be mean at times, but like this? On the other hand you have the soldiers, whose decision to get out of the army, is not seen as a good thing.
The way they are shown is not flattering at all. It's one thing to have them boycott the Army, it's another thing to paint them the way the movie does. Now you may not care that much about those undertones, but they are there. If you can keep that out of the movie watching experience itself, there is a lot of tension and drama - and the movie is very well made too
