Profile of Jarhead

The mood of Jarhead is cynical, clever, and tense. The plot centers around anti-war themes, military life, and state affairs. It is a drama and war movie. In approach, Jarhead is serious and realistic. It takes place, at least partly, in a battlezone. The setting is Iraq. Jarhead happens during the Gulf War and in contemporary times. It is originally a true story. It is especially suggested for a boys' night. Note that Jarhead includes violent content.

I liked it
we got used to full-of-bombing-and-action war films, but this one is different. this is what this whole interesting story is based on- soldiers that just waiting for something to happen. sounds boring, but it's so not. watch it and you'll see.
