    Found it very interesting and realistic. For people who say "the characters don't connect and we learn nothing about them", do you think making a biopic of every character would have made it more realistic or interesting? Those men are changed by the war, they just cannot connect like a normal person anymore...that's realism. Expecting the characters to be normal and friendly people you feel attached to is nonsense ! Of course I agree Precious and Inglorious Basterds are amazing films too...but maybee the academy wished to give a deeper message by awarding this movie. 5 years 11 months ago

    I did a tour as a combat engineer in Afghanistan, and during bomb training we had a lot of good laughs about what NOT to do, as seen in this movie. It is so unrealistic it almost becomes a comedy. 3 years 2 months ago

    The realism of this film is approximately that of Rambo. That this won an Oscar is shocking. 7 years 5 months ago
