3.0 out of 5 stars
Good film, but little realism, July 1 2004
The film is not bad, for it's as spectacular as one might expect and the budget is not low: but since "Saving Private Ryan" on, genuine military buffs have understood what is that subtle sense of disappointment they feel when watching movies like this: lack of realism, that is portraying war the way it IS and not the way some movie-makers think it COULD or it SHOULD be! Uniforms should look like UNIFORMS and not just COSTUMES, and combat should look like COMBAT and not just ACTING combat. And the same could be said for most war movies of the '50's to the '80's.
