||Synopsis: Anthony Swoff Swofford, a Camus-reading kid from Sacramento, enlists in the Marines in the late 1980s. He malingers during boot camp, but makes it through as a sniper, paired with the usually-reliable Troy. The Gulf War breaks out, and his unit goes to Saudi Arabia for Desert Shield. After 175 days of boredom, adrenaline, heat, worry about his girlfriend finding someone else, losing it and nearly killing a mate, demotion, latrine cleaning, faulty gas masks, and desert football, Desert Storm begins. In less than five days, it's over, but not before Swoff sees burned bodies, flaming oil derricks, an oil-drenched horse, and maybe a chance at killing. Where does all the testosterone go?

I was reluctant to see this movie. As a veteran of Desert Shield/Storm,
I spent my first 90 days in-theater in the Weapons Co of A Swofford's
Battalion. I later was moved to the 1st Bn of 7th Marines, but having
been in the same unit for some of the same time I felt I could offer
readers a unique perspective on the film's accuracy.
From a purely aesthetic perspective I thought the film was well done.
The acting was very good, and the script was well written, witty, and
accurate. The actors were well suited to their roles. My personal
preference for a good plot would have been disappointed were it not for
my personal interest in the film. In my opinion this film is an
outstanding dramatic-documentary, so adjust your expectations
accordingly. If you are expecting a driving plot line and all the
accompanying dramatic tension, then I think you will be disappointed
(as many whose comments I heard exiting the theater certainly were).
But if you think of it as a chance to take a glimpse into a point in
history, and see it as some of those who lived it did, then I think you
will be impressed.
Many people may think that the obscenity of some of the interactions
was overdone for effect. But whatever anyone's personal judgment of
that behavior, that is the closest portrayal of Marines (or soldiers)
being themselves I have yet seen on screen. Marines are vulgar. They do
watch porn. They do fight among themselves. They do both hate, and
love, the Marine Corps. There is an omni-present anti-war conspiracy
theorist. The do say ridiculous things. There are some who are over the
line. The reality of the Marine Infantry is that things happen there
every day that are well beyond conventional sensibility, and which
strain credibility to the average civilian. It's all true. I love the
Marine Corps and I am still serving - I don't have an axe to grind. It
just happens to be true.
Are there parts of the film that I find incredible? Yes. But they are
not the essential things. There is a scene, it's even in the trailer,
in which everyone is firing their weapon into the air. I wasn't there,
but I can't fathom a breach of discipline on that scale. I can't say
it's impossible, but I am doubtful. But whether it's true or not is not
important. At its essence this is a film about Marines, how they
adjusted to the Marine Corps, each other, and a war. If there are a few
incredible details, then we can just be grateful that Hollywood didn't
impose a car-chase on us.
This is a film about Marines. At that time, there were very few who
turned down scholarships to Ivy League schools to come in. We were from
strange backgrounds. We were obscene. We did want to get our kills.
Many of us were frustrated that our war was only 100 hrs long. We knew
we were filling the footsteps of giants - the Marines of Iwo, The
Chosin, Belleau Wood - and I think we all wanted a chance to earn a
place next to those men. In our wild, adrenalized youth, those
aspirations just took the crude form of looking for a kill. Or at least
that's how I've put it in perspective 15 years later.
If you go and see this film, try to recall yourself at 18 (as I was).
Suspend your judgment of the obscenity and vulgarity until you're sure
you would've done it differently. I can't speak for Swofford, but I am
still incredibly proud of my service there. The insanity of this film
reminds me why: because it is characteristic of the immense hardship
that our youth bears on behalf of the rest. Do the characters look
stressed? It's not hyperbole. We were 18 and we thought we were going
to die over there. Still, at H-Hour, everyone marched North. In my
opinion, you better fill some big shoes before you judge that.
So don't go into this film champing at the bit to pigeon-hole it as
"Anti" or "Pro" war, with all the pre-fab rhetoric that comes with such
a judgment. You have an opportunity here to look back into our little
moment in history. Swofford has invited you into our memories. They are
not Right, and they are not Left, they are just our story as Swofford
lived it. If that kind of thing interests you, then go and see this
