I just finished this movie today in history class. I'm a junior girl in high school and absolutely LOVED this movie. It's so intense and is a real tear jerker at some parts. Mel Gipson does a wonderful job, probably the best movie I've seen him in and he's amazing!!! If you don't like gory senes, this movie isn't for you. There is a lot of blood and disturbing images but if you can take that and really respect the military, you MUST see this movie!!!
