Yeah, I really enjoyed it I wondered if there was like the equivilent but with british forces? I've seeen Jarhead and I didn't think it was that great to be honest. Anyone got any recommendations for modern day war films?

The Kingdom - Very good film out earlier this year on DVD and is only £2.99 at a variety of places...

Afraid I can't think of many with British forces... modern day war films anyway.

the kingdom is a great film.

fully recommend the kingdom, it's not a war war film - but great action.

yeah, get the kingdom, not british but still great.

also its not british, nor modern, but if you haven't seen it you need to see 'full metal jacket'

I think that was on the television the other night, i remember seeing it on "now and next"

You might like band of brothers too..
it's a mini series which is about 11 hours long.

It's WWII though..

Amazing in my opinion.

Not a filmy film, but have a look at Bravo Two Zero with Sean Bean in it... Very good.

I reckon someone should start making Andy McNab's books into films, they should have the potential to be awesome.
