3.5 out of 10 Underrated
Orla from Cork, 31 Jan 2008
Underrated movie. Enjoyable, not too long or too involved. Jamie Foxx, thankfully, is well directed so reigned in. Only negative is that this Americans at War genre has been done in so many famililar Vietnam epics so it's difficult to do anything new. The scriptwriter even doffs his cap at this with the "Why can't we get our own music" line when the helicopters fly overhead with the Valries blaring out of their speakers.

What's it about....
Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx and Jake Gyllenhaal star in this critically acclaimed, brilliantly unconventional war story from Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes. Jarhead (the self-imposed moniker of the Marines) follows Swoff (Gyllenhaal) from a sobering stint in boot camp to active duty, where he sports a sniper rifle through Middle East deserts that provide no cover from the heat or Iraqi soldiers. Swoff and his fellow Marines sustain themselves with sardonic humanity...
