As A Reserve Marine with a Non-combat deployment under his belt, I can assure you about the accuracy of this God's gift to war flicks. When these hard charging DevilDoggies start putting rounds down range you'll have flashbacks to MCT faster than you can say "KILL." My buddy, a Radar Technician, started rocking back and forth saying, "THOSE AREN'T SIM ROUNDS THOSE AREN'T SIM ROUNDS." Additionally, when Seal Team ten shows up. Just...WOW. You thought Lone Survivor was a good depiction of Navy Seals? Move over Marcus, there's a new kid on the block. No <more>

Many silly things but overall a fun, thoughtful, movie (by ThomasJeff)
So yes there are many silly things in the movie, such as gun fire not making anyone deaf, bad guys not taking the chance to kill the heroes, and the overestimation of the strength/capacity of the Taliban they do not act this way at all fighting head-to-head with marines, instead the real Talib just plant things and run away and shoot from afar . Yes the dialog is sometimes cheesy, corny, and could have used a better writer. Yes one of the guys says a dumb thing about Afghanistan never losing a war, which is not true, they lose every battle and pretty much every war but the enemy usually <more>
doesn't want to prolong a pointless fight and they leave this barren place.Another is one where one marine is a coward and doesn't fight. This is worse than desertion because a deserter is honest and leaves an army early. Someone who stops fighting in the middle of a fight, is worse than a deserter because he deceptively pretended that he could fight and tricked his team into fighting and depending on him. This is dishonest unlike a deserter. Yet of course no one punishes him or yells at him for his cowardice and he doesn't survive so they can't court martial him.Overall though, the movie was good because it had a good message. The anti-education beliefs of the Taliban. The fact that there needs to be hope for the country and the people there. The fact that marines will fight for something despite having many chances to retreat, go home, or not take any risks. Overall the plot was well-done. It was just the writing and little details that they messed up a lot.It was much better than the original jarhead which I don't even understand what the point of that movie was.
The title for this film, "Jarhead 2: Field of Fire", appears to be very poorly chosen. This is because it really isn't a sequel to "Jarhead" and you certainly don't need to have seen this prior film to appreciate this new movie. On its own, it's an exceptional film and I strongly recommend it. And, if you didn't know it, a jarhead is a nickname for US Marines--and it's a name they often call each other.The film is about a small group of soldiers serving in Afghanistan. Oddly, despite this war having lasted well over a decade, very few movies have really <more>
talked about it. This picture is a tribute to the American and Afghan soldiers fighting against the Taliban--and it makes its point very personally. Now I know some people reading this have very strong feelings for and against this war--I myself have very mixed feelings. But you cannot help but admire the courage of the individuals willing to risk their lives after you see this film no matter what your views on the war might be. And the film manages to praise and honor them without being jingoistic or overtly political.As I watched "Jarhead 2", I really wish I could have seen the film with some soldiers who actually have served in Afghanistan to get their insights into the realism of the project. To me, it looked insanely real--about as real and scary as any war picture can be. Although the movie was filmed in Bulgaria, it managed to look pretty much like what I expected Afghanistan to look like. And, the soldiers seemed very professional and believable--like real soldiers. Now for some, this is a problem. To make the film realistic, the film is very bloody. Additionally, like real soldiers, the actors in this film TALK like soldiers--crude, sexually suggestive and totally inappropriate for small kids and the easily offended. However, this DID make the film seem very real, as the soldiers I've known sounded just like these young men and women. Because of all this, the film easily earns its R rating--but I still encourage you to see it. After all, war is so detached from most of us. We see a few reports on TV but really have little idea of the sacrifice or hell these folks go through--and the film is probably about as close as we can get to knowing what it's like to be on the front lines without actually going there. Having unfamiliar faces instead of familiar actors only adds to this effect.The film has a very simple plot. A convoy is taking supplies to another location when they happen upon a couple US Navy Seals who are trying to escort a local woman to safety. Why, exactly, she is with them is something you learn later in the film. However, the rescue of the Seals and the woman is NOT the end of their problems--it's only the beginning. Soon the caravan is set upon by Taliban fighters and many of the soldiers and all of the vehicles are destroyed. How can the few remaining stragglers possibly escape now that they are trapped behind enemy lines?This film is very, very tense and personal. The fighting looks very real, the actors appear to bleed and die before your eyes and the film is not pretty, as war is not pretty. This makes the movie tough viewing and certainly isn't for everyone. However, I do strongly recommend the film for many reasons. First, war SHOULD be shown as personal and bloody and awful because it is! While I love old films, the sanitized version of war we got in the 1940s and 50s films from Hollywood made it all seem very 'nice' and Jarhead 2 strips away the myth. Second, although I assume this is a relatively low budget film despite being released by Universal , you certainly can't tell. The writing, acting and sets all look great and seem real. They certainly got a lot for the money they spent to make this film. Third, I hate that most folks almost always go just to the big-budgeted mega-movies. Many of these films are quite formulaic and the studios don't need your money. Instead, consider spending it on a film that is high quality and gripping from start to finish and which doesn't star Johnny Depp, George Clooney or Angelina Jolie. I have nothing against these actors, but sometimes a film can achieve even more without a big name in the film and "Jarhead 2" actually is a first-rate film.As always, I'd love to hear from you about the movie. Especially if you are a serviceman or servicewoman, I'd love to know your thoughts--both positive and negative.
I recently got a chance to see this at a screening and it is surprisingly excellent. I say surprisingly because I never expect too much from a film I know isn't going to be released in theaters, so I figured it would be another addition to the saturated war film DVD market. Not at all. It reminded me a lot of the slow tension builds of The Hurt Locker and Lone Survivor, where the audience knows action is coming, but the character build up allows us to care about the team members who come under fire once the fighting begins. The actors are all quite good, with a special nod given to Bokeem <more>
Woodbine, Danielle Savre and Cole Hauser. The team has a great rapport and the humor is sprinkled in in appropriate doses. While not all of the jokes are hit their mark exactly, the lines delivered by Woodbine are laugh out loud funny, which helps lighten the mood in a film that has an incredible amount of heart.Well done all around, and proof that not all great films make it to the big screen.
You should note that this is like a vast majority of Hollywood movies - it is a work of fiction designed to provide entertainment to the masses.As a Marine combat veteran, I have yet to see many fictional war movies that are realistic. I'm not so sure that many members of the general public could handle a realistic war movie. While it has its share of inaccurate flaws, I am quick to overlook those, opting to enjoy this as entertainment.And it does provide entertainment. The writers and producers do a reasonably decent job of portraying Marines in a combat environment, despite any specific <more>
attention to details that most people will not notice. People watch war movies to see action and effects and to this extent the movie does not disappoint, however inaccurate and unrealistic like most movies some of the effects are.The dialogue is a watered down version of many dialogs I encountered while in the Marine Corps so I appreciate them taking the watered down route.While there is not a deep storyline, you will gradually connect with many of the characters. Unfortunately the movie is ruined by the writers killing off most of the people you are pulling for, which is the primary downfall of the movie. The other big downfall to the movie is calling it Jarhead 2, assuming that it is a spin off of the original Jarhead. The only two ways it connects to the original movie is that it focuses on the Marine Corps and it uses Jarhead in the title. Other than that, it is a completely different movie.All in all, if you overlook the inaccuracies, like you should in most movies, and view it as purely entertainment, you will find yourself on the edge of your seat at numerous times.
THE MOST DANGEROUS PLACE ON EARTH (by nogodnomasters)
After watching some really bad war films, you know, the ones with Eric Roberts in them, I was relieved to watch this film and perhaps over rated it by comparison.The film opens up questioning our cause in Afghanistan, a person who wants to do something to change the world, and ends with a positive answer. After a Marine Sargent gets his leg shot off, Corporal Merrimette Josh Kelly is given a field promotion and has to take much needed supplies to a unit and cross through Taliban territory. He reluctantly accepts the position having a pregnant wife at home and no desire to re-enlist. In fact <more>
his commander Stephen Lang asked him if he had submitted his letter of resignation yet, which caught me off guard, because having been in the service, enlisted people did not submit letters of resignation, only officers.They take a truck convey, because an air drop would have made the film too short and besides there is a dust storm that we never see. Along the way, they run into difficulty causing Merimette to make those "world changing" decisions.The characters are introduced by name, rank, and place of origin. Character build up happens with the fun military banter, which normally concerns sex and me having to Google "Queen Christina." Seriously? The acting was fair, the plot needed tightening up. For instance, one time when they were on foot they killed some Taliban with vehicles, but opted to proceed on foot. Not the decision I would have made, but then again I was never a Hollywood Marine.Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex. Early gratuitous male nudity.
