All I can say is wow. My brother is a marine and although he has not been in active duty yet this film kind of scared me. The only thing I really remember is actually seeing the bullets fly through the air and the emotions of the soldiers when someone was killed in battle. The violence really sticks with you. The soldiers wanted to mourn but Captain Dan Kearnry told them "I want you to mourn but I want you to get over it and do your job", (Restrepo). The most memorable scene to me was the scene of Rock Avalnche, the whole part of the film just stuck in my head. It was a violent place and the soldiers were scared. Being apart of the audience, you could tell that they feared the war but tried to be positive about doing their job. I would definitely recommend this movie to my friends and family especially my brothers. All of my brothers want to join the army or marines when they become of age. My oldest brother is already apart of the marines and he has yet to see active duty so maybe this movie can show him what he might be up against one day.
