| Okay movie, but not quite accurate.
The movie was fine, but I disagree that there is anything accurate about it. There is absolutely no way any Marines would have had non-reg haircuts, would have talked back to a Gunny. A Gunny would never fire a rifle at a platoon on a PT course, and unlike those in the movie, Marines know to "keep your finger straight and off the trigger until you're ready to fire!". I could go on and on, but then I know I am being too picky. Those are all minor issues anyway, the most inaccurate part is the constant insubordination. It just never happens like it does in the movie - never. When you are part of the Corps, you don't have to look for these errors, you just can't help but seeing them. I liked the movie, I just don't want someone to think it is accurate - although it gets better as the movie progresses. I've been in 8.5 years so far.
