enjoyable and worth a look but could have been better
I served in Operation Desert Storm with the National Guard and I am prouder of this then anything else that I have done in my entire life. I remember the euphoria of patriotism and good feeling that swept our country after the wars end. I remember the kind support and the great big Welcome Home that we all got and I am so greatful and I will be until my dying day. This film looks like it was very quickly slapped together. It is as if they wanted to get it out as soon as possible to cash in. I enjoyed it but it could have been a lot better. So many of the characters in this film are cliched that it is almost laughable if you forget its meant to be serious. There have been only two other Hollywood features that have dealt with the Persian Gulf War, they are Courage Under Fire and Three Kings. I hope that someday they will make a good, first-class Hollywood production that will do justice to myself and all of my fellow veterans who went over there and did their best.
