Now, THIS is a good war movie starring Jamie Foxx and Chris Cooper (unlike the failed The Kingdom).  The movie is wrenching and truly makes you feel like you are experiencing the feel of war.

QUALITY:
Good, but, like The Kingdom, the movie gets grainy in the smokey and firey scenes which is a good portion of the movie.

BONUS FEATURES:
Commentary.

The special features are completely pointless as it feels like the Director (Sam Mendes) and writers aren’t really in it.  However, the movie itself more than makes up for it.  Mendes (Revolutionary Road) is at his peak in this oft forgotten war gem as is the normally semi-annoying Jake Gyllenhaal.
