Good price for this movie.

Based on former Marine Anthony Swofford's best-selling 2003 book about his pre-Desert Storm experiences in Saudi Arabia and about his experiences fighting in Kuwait. Jarhead (the self-imposed moniker of the Marines) follows "Swoff" (Gyllenhaal), a third-generation enlistee, from a sobering stint in boot camp to active duty, sporting a sniper's rifle and a hundred-pound ruck on his back through Middle East deserts with no cover from intolerable heat or from Iraqi soldiers, always potentially just over the next horizon. Swoff and his fellow Marines sustain themselves with sardonic humanity and wicked comedy on blazing desert fields in a country they don't understand against an enemy they can't see for a cause they don't fully fathom... Foxx portrays Sergeant Sykes, a Marine lifer who heads up Swofford's scout/sniper platoon, while Sarsgaard is Swoff's friend and mentor, Troy, a die-hard member of STA-their elite Marine Unit.

I ordered this on the first day of the sale, 10% quidco as well.

Don't usually like war movies, but this one was cracking. Voted hot!

worst war film ever.

Bargain for this superb film. Featuring the sexy Jake Gyllenhaal. Well worth a watch. I dont like this sort of subject matter usually but the main gist of this film is the camoradary(is that how you spell it?). About the US troups protecting the oil fields. Cracking buy!

I've heard that this is one of the worst war films ever

Yeah I thought it was booooooring! It's worth £2.99 for Jake Gyllenhaal though

Rather dull film but gets the point across.
