| A happy surprise
Just my two cents about this film.

I started watching it and at the beginning it just felt like a childish/overly American movie that would be hard to stay awake for.. But as the movie went on it grew on me.

From feeling extremely mediocre I got to think it was actually decent and when it was over I thought it was quite good. I thought of it as a "unknown gem". Then I go on IMDb and see the ranks.. And it's 5,3 / 10. Really? For me that is a highly mediocre grade and I've seen my fair share of 5 / 10 movies... This is far better.

After quickly scanning what others felt. It's anti-American reviews and "this didn't actually happen" opinions all over the place. But it's a movie! Sure there are movies based on reality and movies that is far from.. But at the end of the day: It's just a movie! I enjoyed it and regardless of what I feel about every move or part in the movie. It made me think of how it CAN be like. Not how it actually is or isn't.

There are many different movies about War and I must say I've seen plenty that isn't as entertaining or as thought-provoking as this one. See it for what it is.
