Storyline

Battle-scarred and disillusioned by the war, Corporal Chris Merrimette is put in charge of a unit whose next mission is to resupply a remote outpost on the edge of Taliban-controlled territory. While driving through the hostile Helmand province, a Navy SEAL flags down their convoy and enlists the unit on an operation of international importance: they must help an Afghan woman famous for her defiance of the Taliban escape the country. Without tanks or air support, Merrimette and his team will need all the courage and firepower they can muster to fight their way across the war-torn country and shepherd the woman to safety.

This has nothing to do with the first Jarhead, apart from the title. Well if you are stretching it, you could say that it is open minded when it comes to its characters. We also get the main military man from Avatar ... again being a military man. Less screen time though, still a tough one. The rest is a group of people who are doing a good job making you care for them.

The action is nicely done, though having just watched "Fury" not even close to anything in that movie. The whole setting of this movie does remind me of some 80s movies, which had a similar theme and had some of the same results. It works, but it's not something I can get too excited about.
