Firstly the cover is somewhat misleading. I assumed it would be about male & female soldiers in Iraq. It wasn't.... but it did show some quite disturbing scenes of seemingly realistic urban fire-fights. Secondly it had more than just A WAR IS HELL theme. It seemed to have something of a message which probably meant more to American viewers than Brits but nevertheless that was somewhat unusual. Thirdly it spent a large amount of time on the effect war trauma on combatants AND their families when they came back home. All in all, a rather worthy movie and, if you are feeling worthy, one to enjoy or should that be endure.
