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?

“Every war is different. Every war is the same.” From director Sam Mendes comes the compelling war drama Jarhead. Based on a memoir by Anthony Swofford, the film follows Swofford as he joins the Marines and is recruited to be a sniper, but he soon finds himself stationed in Saudi Arabian as part of Operation Desert Shield endlessly waiting to see action. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Jamie Foxx, Peter Sarsgaard, Lucas Black, and Chris Cooper, a film features a strong cast that gives good performances. And Mendes does a great job at capturing the isolation and beauty of the desert, and at showing the horrors of war. Additionally, Thomas Newman provides a terrific score. Yet at times the film gets a little crass and vulgar, but it’s also incredible honest. While it has some problems, Jarhead is a powerful look at the life of a soldier.
