It is more about the War of the Soldiers within themselves, about how they deal with being away from their loved ones...finding out while in IRAQ their GF and wives are cheating on them, the endless nights and how much they absolutely hate being there.
Not much true War action in this movie, it's more about the soldiers mental state and how they are still human being just like any of this, even though they may have higher strengths and training...at heart they are no differnt.
This movie is basically covering them waiting for War rather then going through a war....this is all that i got out of it.
