A war movie without a war. Not much action or fighting scenes. It´s more about fighting boredom than the enemy and I don´t mean it as a negative. The movie is solid but not exceptional. One thing I always ask myself after watching those newer war movies: do marines really behave like that?

:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart: - You’re looking for action and war, this is not for you. Jarhead is more focused on the soldiers and their mindset, and on what goes on in the camp before, during and after the war. 10:heart:- Masterpiece :100: 9:heart:- Excellent 8:heart: - Amazing :ok_hand: 7:heart:- Great :sun_with_face: 6:heart: - Good :thumbsup: 5:heart: - Average :head_bandage: 4:heart: - Bad but watchable :octagonal_sign: 3:heart: - Bad :sob: 2:rage:- Awful :face_vomiting: 1:face_with_symbols_over_mouth: - Bull Shit

_Jarhead_ took me by surprise with its unique portrayal of wartime experiences. Unlike traditional war movies filled with plenty of action, it dives deep into the emotional and psychological impact of war on soldiers. It's not what I was expecting, but that's what makes it stand out. Rather than focusing on adrenaline-pumping battle scenes, the film delves into the mundane and monotonous aspects of war, showing how it can be a psychological challenge for soldiers. It offers a raw and realistic portrayal of the toll it takes on their mental and emotional well-being. This unconventional approach brings a unique perspective to the war genre. It's worth a watch for those seeking a different perspective on war.
