i didnt think this movie would be all that good, it was just another extra credit assignment for school. i really shouldnt have judged the dvd by the cover, it was really awesome..

***** (Five stars) Authentic war scenes. See the DVD bonus to find out how they did this. Acting first rate. Plus beautiful friendship story. This was a "sleeper." I found it on DVD when researching movies with Tobey Maguire. All of my friends give this the same high rating.
