Restrepo is an amazing documentary that gives insight into the experience of depoloyment. There is no narrator, only the footage from Korengal Valley and the interviews of the soldiers following their deployment; it's a raw, matter-of-fact film that is meant to pull viewers in to experience "Death Valley for 90 minutes. I highly recommend this to everyone, especially those who know someone in the military. My husband is in the air force and it was interesting to get his take on the film and how it compared to his own deployments. This is a remarkable look into those who serve our country in the military and how they handle it. Thank you to all those serving in the U.S. military!
this doc. is very good!! when i saw the trailer i thought i had to get this movie. when i got it i fell in love with it, the action of the men and women fighting over there it really grabs my attention and draws me to watch it again. there are scenes of fighting when they are on patrol walking around villages looking for the Taliban and other terrorist groups and you see them fighting at Restrepo and seeing the ah-64 apaches and a-10s rolling in guns hot. The movie also has sad parts as well which im not going to say on here. The movie is very moving and touching at the sametime. it deals on what they had over there and also what the dealt back home. those men are the most brave men that could have done the job any military branch could do the job.
I first saw this movie when a friend came home from Iraq and suggested that I watch it, as every American should. It was extremely insightful into the day to day of the said location. My heart goes out to the soldiers who were involved in the making of this documentary, as well as all of those who've served our country.
I ran across this movie by accident, but am extremely greatful I did. This is an excellent and impressively open examination of the lives of a group of young men in the far reaches of Afghanistan fighting the so-called War on Terrorism. The filmmakers did an amazing job with telling the story of this group of young men, and the harsh realities and difficulties they faced, and is one of the best war documentaries I have seen from any time period. The level of emotion and openness of the troops is heart wrenching at times, as is the frustration with some of the perceived solutions offered to Afghanistan locals. This is all the more prescent with the Rolling Stone expose on the killing teams there. Regardless of your views on the War on Terorism or Afghanistan, this is a must see film! A+
If you want to communicate with and understand the soldiers that come back from the middle east, outwardly injured or not, this movie is the path.
