    It isn't elegiac, but enraged. It doesn't look back with sorrow, but forward in dread. And it's made with a clear intention - to stop the Iraq war. show more

    The Americans are portrayed with varying degrees of loathsomeness, but there's not much variety in the film. It's all an awful aberration. show more

    DePalma's movie offers its own doctoring and processing, without delivering an ounce of real humanity - good or bad - in the bargain. show more

    As a soldier who has ACTUALLY been to Iraq. This story is a work of pure political propaganda very, VERY simular to what al qaeda produced and passed around via internet and in the neiborhoods of Iraq. Hollywood is very afraid to tell tell the truth because their world would fall apart very much like the fiction in this story. Hollywood loves war, they profit from the blood of my brothers and sisters spilt they fabricate a story when it doesn't fit thier socialist views and agenda. They are quick to denounce a war but are quicker to produce a movie about the war and defile the soldiers, marines, sailors , and airmen who serve. They need to remember with out thier sacrifice Hollywood is NOTHING!!

    Face it, republicans LOVE WAR. They not only love war, they lust for it. When their moronic leaders utter innane and traitorous comments to the enemy like "Bring em on" republicans all lap up such slogans and foam at the mouth in anticiaption of more and more deaths. The Bush Regime is the most secretive one in the history of the United States, but republicans applaud a government which ignores its citizenry and which is in love with corrupt corporate criminals who are making hundreds of billions of dollars off of the deaths of almost 4000 dead American soldiers and almost a million innocent Iraqi people. Republicans do not see grey in their lives. They only are capable of seeing black and white. That is because in order to see the greys in the world it requires intelligence and wisdom, which they do not possess. Every republican who supported and voted for Bush and his corporate cronies are just as guilty of murder of 4000 American troops and 1,000,000 innocent Iraqis as their evil and corrupt leaders. The republican party is the greatest threat to the United States since it was founded. Since 9/11 Bush has allowed 12 million illegal aliens to invade our country. Since it only took 19 terrorists to cause so much havoc and death on 9/11 there are certainly at least 19 terrorists among that 12 million Bush allowed to walk into our country. Bush said that he would do anything to defend the US but he is a LIAR. Bush is a fraud and not one republican has the intelligence to see through the corrupt and evilness in their party of parasites who have caused a million times more damage to the US than any terrorist could ever do. Wake up people, the enemy to this once great country is the republican party.

    The film was very powerful and showed war as being the ugliest aspect of humanity. War is not a "team sport" like many politiicians portray it. Innocent people are brutally kiilled and tortured in all wars. The moment a person thinks that their "side" is the "right side" they become vulmerable to all the atrocities. That is the reality. I applaud Mr. De Palma for his effort to remind people that war is not a board game followed by a parade. It is death and it is pain.
