MTV war movie, clever but brainless, moralistic but repugnant, smarminess posing as subversive deconstruction of genre conventions. It purports to make Americans face up to the truths of the Gulf War and the brutality of mayhem yet has Ice MTV war movie, clever but brainless, moralistic but repugnant, smarminess posing as subversive deconstruction of genre conventions. It purports to make Americans face up to the truths of the Gulf War and the brutality of mayhem yet has Ice Cube blow up a helicopter with a rigged football(!!), and most ridiculously of all, has an Iraqi soldier lecture Mark Walhberg on the hypocrisy of American culture by blabbering about why Michael Jackson wants to be white. Eh? Junk fantasy morality cooked up inside an indulgent mastrubatory mind, it has nothing to do with truth, historical or otherwise, or with decency, modest or far-reaching. Expand

Invades Iraq as a hitherto unclaimed territory in which to initiate cinematic excess. Meticulous detail to realism as a backdrop to political and moralistic posturing. It's never easy to believe we do the right things for the right Invades Iraq as a hitherto unclaimed territory in which to initiate cinematic excess. Meticulous detail to realism as a backdrop to political and moralistic posturing. It's never easy to believe we do the right things for the right reasons internationally, or that our soldier's hearts are in the right places. But it is easy to stipulate that the representations of these three bozos to same be discarded right from the get-go. Collapse

Easily one of the most overrated films to come down the pike in a long time.
