The writing was abysmal for a very well acted war movie that had grace and subtleness, two traits not noteworthy for the genre. Colin Farrell did a wonderful job as Bozz Johnson, a "Can I, Can't I" leader of the platoon who for a NCO edges on liberality and even philosophical intelligence. With bloodthirsty enemies among him and uncertain friends around him, Bozz is confrontation and charismatic all at the same time while the drill seargents see a born Marine. Semper Fi propoganda at its worst or best. Recommended .Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

As real as it gets
As a former Marine, I can tell you that this is the most accurate account of military service I've ever seen. Nothing about this film is romanticized or sugar-coated. This is not a patriotic, Idealistic american war movie. This movie expresses the fear and the desperation that a young enlisted man goes through to serve his country.Was this review helpful?

Tigerland was a great and realistic movie
Tigerland is a great movie. It is not well known but it should be. It is a great, realistic movie. It really shows human emotion about the veitnam war and what training was like for the thousands of soldiers who were forced to go to the war and so bravely fought for their country. Everyone should see this movie. It is touching and insprirational.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
