Overview

A young man tries to fight the military system only to find it fighting back in unexpected ways in this hard-edged drama. In 1971, Roland Bozz Colin Farrell is a draftee who has been sent to the Advanced Infantry Training Facility in Fort Polk, LA, where with hundreds of other new soldiers he's to be taught a final course in combat skills before being shipped out to Vietnam. Bozz has no interest in going to war, and is determined to get sent home as a troublemaker. But his plan backfires; his superiors regard his insubordination as a sign of intelligence and independent thinking, and he's told he might some day become an officer. Bozz and his fellow soldiers -- aspiring writer Paxton Matthew Davis, sensitive Miter Clifton Collins Jr., philosophical Cantwell Thomas Guiry, bloodthirsty Wilson Shea Whigham, and heroic Johnson Russell Richardson -- are taught how to survive as they face their fears of death and wonder if they can somehow escape going to war. Tigerland was directed by Joel Schumacher; in a change of pace from his best-known work Falling Down, Batman Forever, and Batman and Robin, the film was made on a relatively low budget under $10 million, was written by first-time screenwriters Ross Klavan and Michael McGruther, and features a cast of young, little-known actors.

    Relatively Good

    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 .

    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.

    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.

    Tigerland, Kick Butt

    Tigerland, is a well acted movie with a good script, the actors are great. Colin Farrell is great as Bozz, not to mention the other actors. If you like pre vietnam movies I highly recommend this movie.

    Internal Wars

    Tigerland is the rare war film that lacks war. The entire story takes place in boot camps on American soil, which just makes its message doubly powerful. A brilliantly acted film, Tigerland's cast is led by newcomer Colin Farrell in a wonderful, star-making performance. Perfectly directed, expertly scripted, and extremely underappreciated, Tigerland rests as one of the best films of last year.
