I don't care what you say, I thought this sucked..3 hours of overly symbolic shit. I never felt for ONE of the characters, except for Tom Sizemore (in places) and the editing was shoddy - it totally fucked up the continuity.
This film's continuity editor should have been fired. Out of a cannon.
And why the hell did they use levity to lighten moments? On a film this serious such things are pointless. It's like having the Jews in the gas chambers suddenly cracking jokes as they were gasping for air.
I was offended by this film because it was TOTALLY one sided, it was historically inaccurate in many places, and it tried and failed to shock the audience. The effects sucked big time. You could see the fucking squibs under their jackets.
The opening sequence killed all meaning the film might have had if it were half as long.
And this film should be called 'What is Tom Hank's Job?' I fucking knew it beforehand! If trying to make war seem futile, make the sergent an ex-teacher (snore.. C'mon, you telling me you didn't guess when he finished off a quote to that kid from ET?)
OH! And why were there cameo appearances? Talk about trivializing a serious subject. Platoon, Full Metal Jacket and Casualties of war are excellent enough to stand up as anti-war films. WE DONT NEED THIS SHAMBOLIC TURD.
Spielberg: The respect I had for him doing Schindlers List is fading fast. How much did Hollywood pay you to make this crap?
And I KNOW it will be a big Oscar winner.. WHY? Because it is what Hollywood wants. It wants people to think it will make important films, but this is as important as a mousemat without a computer.Piece of shit on shakycam.
