5.0 out of 5 stars One Helluva Ride!, 19 Oct 2010
This review is from: Restrepo [DVD] (DVD)
The best documentary so far on the most useless war since the Great War.
Absolutely fantastic film, giving an insight into the daily horrors and impossibility of the war in Afghanistan.
Every interview with the individual soldiers involved is extremly moving. Listening to them describe the horrors and fear of battle - then to actually SEE the battle on screen, as the film makers are right there, is incredible and at times very emotional ( the scene where one of the sergeants is killed is very painful to watch).

There are also many light moments - watching hardened warriors dancing to 'Touch Me' is hilarious, the conversation over the radio between 2 soldiers about one of them living on a ranch is surreal and many of the moments during firefights, close up of a hot shell falling into one of the guys soft shoe, are very funny!

Totally unmissable, hope there are extras on the DVD!
