I'm not sure where these glowing reviews of this movie are coming from. I just watched it and was absolutely underwhelmed. I guess the acting was pretty solid but the plot was unimaginative and I found myself waiting for the movie just to get started. Moreover the ending was simply a joke. If you simply want to watch a military movie with realistic sets, this should certainly be in your top 150 choices. However there are MUCH better movies out there.
Summary: a complete dud.
