The thing that struck me the most in the movie Restrepo, I think was in the very beginning Captain Dan Kearney said " Just let me kill the damn enemy". They dont see them as people, but an object to kill, which I hate to say is probably what they are told to do.
The scene where Rice says "Ruegal got killed, best guy got killed. What's gonna happen to me, or the guy to my right or to my left?" seems very emotional because once you see someone actually get killed, I can see why he would think "well when will I go? or my buddy?"
The person I would have recommended it too had already seen it. He mentioned his buddy being in the Cornwall Valley right now and it hasn't gotten any better then what the movie tells. He has been in the Army and was in Irac, he told me that is a pretty good example of what war is like there. Having to watch your back every sec. because you never whats going to happen.
